Here is a roundup of the latest updates to Confluence Cloud in the month of August!
Note: Some of these features are currently rolling out, meaning you may not see them just yet but they will be coming to soon within the next few weeks!
Embed a Jira Roadmap & Figma links
Smart Links are evolving! if you missed the announcement last month, check out this post. You can now display a Jira Roadmap or a Figma link in a card view with a small preview of the content or an embedded view that feels native to the page.
No extra macros are required. Simply paste the link on the page, connect your accounts (one-time setup), and a Smart Link is automatically created. Click on the link to toggle the display.
Keep an eye out for more Smart Links improvements coming soon!
Mobile settings have moved and now offer more options
We’ve updated the location of access settings on the Confluence Cloud mobile app. Instead of the bottom right menu, you will now click on your Avatar at the top left. Once you’re in Settings, there are a few new things to point out.
You can quickly determine which space you’re in. If you’re pulling up a random page a coworker sent, it’s helpful context to know where that page lives. It’s especially useful when you want to switch to a different space right then and there.
Additionally, we’ve added an extra level of security. You now have the option to turn on a timeout feature. This means after 2-minutes of inactivity, you’ll be prompted to log back in using your phone’s pin or biometrics (such as fingerprint or facial scanners).
Sticky comment footer
A simple yet handy fix. When you’re on a page with a lot of comments, the “Write a comment” text box stays put. No need to scroll for days before the other comments in order to start your own.
New helpful “how-to” guides
I know, it’s not a feature, but it’s still new! We recently published a series of helpful guides that can benefit everyone, whether you’re brand new to Confluence yourself, training a colleague, or you’re a seasoned veteran looking to level up your skills. Get a quick overview of Confluence here, learn how to get started quickly, and how you can use Confluence and Jira together.
