✨New viewing experience coming soon to Confluence Cloud mobile

Hi Community!

 

I'm Tiffany, a product manager on Confluence mobile. Our team has been working hard on improving the page viewing experience on mobile, both iOS and Android, and we want to share some of the new improvements. We understand that it's important to be able to pick up your work whether at the desk or on the train, and we aim to continue making this possible for you and your team. We hope these features make reading pages on-the-go a more delightful experience.

🤙Custom emoji support

Say goodbye to blue-star emojis! The new page experience supports custom emojis. Use custom emojis to communicate reactions, statuses, and more. Maybe that means more :partyparrot:s in more pages? 

 

New editor elements

See fresh, new elements built in the new editor on your mobile devices. See refreshed looks for:

  • Statuses
  • Panels (info, note, warning, error, success)
  • Code blocks
  • Decisions

 

👆Scrollable tables

Have a full-width or information-rich table? View the table by simply swiping across the rows.  

 

⏰When?

These changes will be available in the coming weeks to months. We wanted to take this opportunity to open up a conversation, should you have any questions or concerns. 

 

📱Try the app out!

Or just search the App or Play Stores for “Confluence Cloud”.

 

💬Got feedback?

We hope this opens up a conversation between us. For you, to share how you and your team use Confluence, and for us, to understand how Confluence can help you move work forward.

Is there a beta test version or a flight test we can demo?

Hi @David Washburn , we currently do not have a beta version out but will keep in touch when that is available!

The current version on Play Store is 1.56.10, updated on 5 Sep 2019. So when do you release the new version that you speak of @Tiffany Chang ?

Is there anything in the works to improve the mobile experience for public (unauthenticated users) on Confluence Cloud sites? Sites aren't responsive or user-friendly. We have 30,000 users and can't expect them to download the app just to view the site for self-service information.

@thomas.ohrbom This will be released on Android over the coming few months. There will be additional features and improvements released between then.

@Nicole McCleaf: We currently are not working on mobile apps being available for unauthenticated users.

@Tiffany Chang I'm asking if Confluence Cloud sites will be responsive in the future, so no app is needed.

@Nicole McCleaf I believe the new Fabric Editor template is their push towards a responsive cloud page. We have started using the new template for all of our pages and they are responsive on the web and on mobile browsers.

The real question would be when Atlassian will allow us to convert existing pages/templates to fabric editor pages.

@David Washburn My main concern is the visibility of the menu. It is really difficult for visitors to navigate around the site. Not a great experience.

@David Washburn There will be an opportunity soon for an opt-in for page conversions to the new editor. We will be making another Community post around is so stay tuned!   

How about an opt-out of the new 'Create a new page' so we can keep working with the old 'create a new page'. The new functionality version does not replicate the output of the old reliable one!

Confluence has removed the old one today and this is a problem!
