What's New in Confluence Cloud – February 2021 Edition

Hey there, Community!

Is it just us, or did January fly by? Next up, we have the month of all things love: features you’ll fall for, upgrades you’ll adore, and Confluence’s Customer Love Month!


Duplicate ❤️ +❤️ page trees

Why recreate a perfectly great page from scratch? Now you can copy an entire page tree (including attachments!). Move your great work within a space or teleport it to an entirely new one.image-20210128-063429.png

You’ll ❤️ this new way to view Pages

Sometimes, a page name just isn’t enough to get you where you need to go. With the new Pages button in the sidebar, you can view a selection of Page cards which lets you test drive before you buy.

PDF Export got some ❤️ improvements

If you’ve ever tried exporting a PDF in Confluence, you know that sometimes PDF can stand for Pretty Darn Frustrating. We’re excited to announce the new and improved Export to PDF function. Get the perfect export every time.

Mobile got a glow-up! You can now access all the macros you love such as action items, images, @ mentions, dates, or attachments with the new editor toolbar. Convey important information to your team wherever they are in the world in 14 new languages

The copy page tree enhancement is very timely! Thanks!

Also, I dismissed a pop-up about public pages this morning (another very handy little change!), and can't seem to find information on it now. Is that part of this release?

@Brittany Sudlow - whoa, love the Evernote-like page tile view (there's lots of apps that do this; Evernote just came to mind), it's space efficient and content rich, yay!

FYI, just left a review for Confluence on LinkedIn. I've been meaning to do that forever-ever.

G'day, I am really thankful that you have updated the export functionality. I just wish I knew html so I could easily add our companies logo to the header and footer of each pdf page. After reading some of the steps that are required to do this I thought it better I go back to my crayons and lego :)

The calendar feature looks fab! 🤓💙

CONGRATS on the Duplicate Page Tree release! YAY!

So can you compare this to the older Copy Page Tree plug-in? Is there 100% overlap or features that one has that the other does not?

The long awaited calendar function has arrived.

Hello

I do not see any changes to PDF export of images in my Cloud instance - they still waaaay to wide and crush other columns.

@Lisa Molden thanks for your comment! You've been selected to receive a gift for Customer Love Month. Please email me at jriek@atlassian.com to claim. 

Thanks for the improvement, after I use confluence to document my project (Mẹo Vặt Hay). It easy to find features and an improvement feature for my project. Thanks, Atlassian. I love you :)

Great to see the ability to copy page trees added as core functionality.

On the topic of mobile, I reported this bug several months ago and it has not been addressed. In the iPhone app, if you tap a link to a Space that includes /overview at the end, the link opens in your default browser. If the link does not include /overview, it correctly opens in the app (as it should).

We have a landing page with links to several Spaces, where some links include /overview and others do not.

  • ourpage.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/TEST/overview ---> tapping this link opens in default browser (wrong)
  • ourpage.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/TEST ---> tapping this link opens in the app and still takes you to Overview page (correct)

The app should open all Confluence links within the app, especially when they are within the same instance.

Hey there @Jawann

My name is Steph and I'm a PM on the Confluence Cloud Mobile team. 

Thank you so much for the feedback! We'd love to learn more about your use cases for Confluence mobile (and any other pain points you might be encountering). Would you be interested in a 30 minute feedback session with us?

As a token of our appreciation, you'd be eligible for a $70 giftcard. 

Feel free to send over your availability at szhang5@atlassian.com if you're interested. Thanks in advance!

What I see is great features in Confluence Premium. Release Management, it's one of the most important features when we have all with Atlassian. It goes to Premium only. Shared agendas, a basic thing, also only on Premium. And about the external users support? How can we use Confluence in a Project when you cannot securely share documentation with an external project team, without have then registered on our bill? No release notes, no shared documentation, no agenda. Everything that is critical are moving to Confluence Premium. I am not so happy!

This may be a silly question, but how do I get the newest features?  I don't currently have them and I cannot figure out how to update my current account.

Thank you!

@Marisa Disner-Martino Do you know if you are using the Cloud version or the Data Center or Server version? These features are just for Confluence Cloud and come to you automatically -- no need to update your account.

We have the Cloud version, but I still don't see the option to use the new features.  Is there somewhere you can direct me to see them in action?

Team Calendar - Love, Copy tree - Love!

I would love to be able to create a tree structure template.  It would save me a ton of time, but I could not find feature suggestions for Confluence, only Jira.
