Types of Confluence reminder emails

Better Content Archiving for Confluence allows you to create different types of notification emails to cater to various use cases. Let's explore each type in detail:

  1. Event-based reminders

    Event-based reminders are triggered by specific events in the Confluence document workflow. These notifications are sent when a page status changes from "Draft" to "Ready for review" or when a Confluence page is approved by a reviewer. Event-based reminders ensure that team members are aware of page status changes and can take necessary actions.

    To set up a reminder email for approved pages, use the following CQL query when configuring your notification:
    arch.status = "Approved"
  1. Confluence review due date reminders

    Confluence review reminders are particularly useful for page owners who need to review content at different stages of its lifecycle. You can set up review notifications for statuses like "Not viewed," "Expired," "Review date has passed," and more. These reminders to update a page help streamline the content review process and prevent delays in compliance or publishing.

    To set up a Confluence review reminder email for expired pages, use the following CQL query in your Better Content Archiving notification settings:
    arch.expirationDate < now()
  1. Custom reminder emails

    With Better Content Archiving, you can create custom notification schemes for specific use cases not covered by default Confluence notification emails. These custom reminders can be tailored to meet the unique needs of your team and organization. You can use Confluence Query Language (CQL) to define the pages to include in an email, allowing you to send reminders based on any criteria.

    For example, you can create a custom reminder to notify your team about updating pages that contain a specific word in the title. This ensures that relevant content is consistently updated and reflects the latest information.

    The Better Content Archiving for Confluence app comes with pre-designed email templates that you can use as-is or customize according to your preferences.

    You can modify the wording, add clarifying details, or write entirely new sections to make the emails more specific to your team's style and requirements. Since the emails are written in standard HTML, you can fully leverage its formatting capabilities to create visually appealing and informative notifications.
