I'll add Space Content Manager. A suite of tools to bulk edit pages with granular restriction options.  Built in Forge.

I can also share another new app in the category Crafted Panels (also built in Forge).

Panels are a great tool for formatting in Confluence and Crafted panels give greater flexibility on the content which can be inside panels plus many styling and interaction options

Hi @Kelsey Van Scoy

 

thanks for mentioning Aura Content Formatting Macros. As a Content Manager, I especially love the latest macro: Dynamic Content Macros. You can create FAQs, Overviews of content like Blogs, Posts, Pages or even create org charts. And any change in the content will automatically be applied to the Confluence overview page. 

 

Also thanks for liking, @Christie Gera _Appfire_ 😊
