A Smart Questions and Answers topic page

A topic page (for example "Quality management questions") holds the Smart QA questions overview macro. It allows to ask new questions and search, filter and sort existing questions in that topic.

A question and its answers

Each question is based on a normal Confluence page. The answer section allows you to give answers or comments to answers, vote on answers and accept an answer.

Re-use Confluence content easily

The answer editor allows you to re-use existing Confluence content easily: link to pages or attachments, show images etc.

More details

Smart Questions and Answers brings questions and answers functionality to Confluence Cloud. It is based on existing Confluence features: child-pages under a "topic"-page serve as questions. Highlights:

  • Define as many topics as you like
  • As topics and questions are pages you can limit the access with native Confluence means
  • Keep using all your macros in questions
  • Use your own templates for questions
  • Vote on answers
  • Define additional content managers (content managers can approve answers in addition to the question creator and delete answers)
  • Search, filter and sort the questions on your topic page
  • Questions and answers are findable with the search
  • Define groups allowed to answer or respond per topic
  • Get notifications on news questions and answers via email, Slack, Microsoft Teams or Google Chat.
  • Show statistic and user ranking (optional)
  • Create hierarchical topic trees
  • OpenAI support for answers
