Permission for topics and/or microblogs
As an admin, I want to be able to grant permissions regarding who can see a microblog in a given space at all. As an admin, I want to be able to grant permissions for any topic in a microblog.
Sort order for microblogs
For default the sort order of microblog entrys is date ascending. So the newest entry is at the end of the stream. There should be a configuration setting to set the default sort order descending and a button on the blog timeline itself to quickly switch between ascending and descending. The same principle would also be very helpful for comments.
Include MB topic in notification email
Users are asking if it is possible to include the topic of the MB post in the notification email for easier sorting and richer information in subject line.
Refreshing Microblog automatically
I want to be able to have Microblog timelines refresh automatically as soon there is a new post. I'd like to be able to choose between two variants: Refreshing the Microblog by set intervals (similar to Jira Gadgets / Dashboards) Refreshing the Microblog instantly after someone posted a new Post or Comment The use case are wallboards and read only dashboards.
Wildcards for Microblog Search
At the moment it is not possible to use wildcards in the microblog search. It would be a big benefit to do that. (so the user can stay at the microblog overview and don't have to change to the confluence search page)
View tracking for Microblogs
As a microblog poster, I want to be able to see how many people have viewed my post, so that I can use this information to inform my decisions. As a Confluence administrator, I want to be able to see how many people are viewing various posts, so that we can gain insight into where further research is needed regarding feature usage and information sharing.
possibility to set if new topics are automatically added to the own microblog stream
The user should have the possibility to set if new microblog topics should automatically added to his microblog stream. Optional he should be able to set that only topics in "watched" Spaces should be added to the list.
Embed a specific microblog post
Sometimes it is necessary to embed specific microblog posts on a page (ie. have the ability to set the macro to filter by ID rather than by topic or space). Alternatively, it would be nice if we could use CQL to query and display microblog posts (querying on type = "micropost" does not currently work).
It would be really helpful to make posts "sticky" so they are always displayed at the top of the timeline. Either the creator should be able to "end" the stickyness or every user should be able to mark the post as "read" so it looses stickyness for that particular user. Also display sticky posts in a special way so they can be distinguished from normal posts.
