The Page Activity Macro is used to display the activity report in a page. It's great for displaying recent activity in a page header or footer. 


When used on a page without a workflow, all users can see the report (it will list page creation, edits, etc).

When used on a page with an unrestricted workflow (which does not define any final=true states), all users will be able to see the report.

When used on a page with a workflow which uses Same-space publishing (one which defines a final=true state):

  • Edit/Admin users will see the full report
  • View only users will only see entries up to the point at which the most recent published (final=true) state was entered
  • If the page has not yet reached a published state, view-only users won't be able to view the page or the report

Adding the report

To add the report to a page:

  1. In the editor, choose Insert → Other Macros → All → Page Activity
  2. Customise the report to your requirements
  3. Choose Insert

Here's how the macro looks on your page:

Same-space publishing

If your workflow uses Same-space publishing, the activity report will only list entries up to and including the most recently published version of content.
