Hi Confluence fans! Thank you so much for giving us your feedback this past year about how you'd like to use Confluence. We've taken all your input and simplified the way you create and edit content so that you will feel awesome creating and sharing pages with your team. No more need to worry about readability across devices, fussing with complicated toolbars, or wondering what your page will look like after you press publish.
Now it's easier than ever to create impactful pages from the start with an optimized layout, in-context toolbars that are relevant to the task you’re doing on the page, live view of all your macro content along with new and redesigned templates. We’ve even updated our emoji set 🎉 .
Optimized for any device
Create with confidence knowing that your content will look beautiful and easy to read on any screen with fixed-width pages optimized for readability. While text will stay within neat margins, your tables and images can expand to wide view or full-page width with a simple toggle in the media toolbar.
Use images, videos and gifs more effectively. You can also wrap text around your images as in the screenshot below
Right tools at the right time
Complicated toolbars in Confluence are now a thing of the past. In-context toolbars help you easily manipulate tables, arrange images, and format various aspect of your page. So when you’re editing a table in Confluence, the table toolbar will pop up in-context within the page. Meanwhile, if you were adding an image the image toolbar would pop up below the image with the ability to manipulating image size and positioning as showcased in the gif below.
Create and publish worry-free with a consistent experience whether you’re viewing a page or editing it. All macros are shown in live view so you don’t have to wonder what your page will look like after pressing publish; you can see what all the content in your macros will look like instantly.
After speaking to you, we saw just how important templates were in your day-to-day work in Confluence. A page template doesn’t just provide you with a built-in structure for creating the content you need, it also provides your team with a structured way to organize work and make information easy to find.
To help your teams collaborate in a more consistent way, we are introducing four new page templates focused on marketing plans, product launches, project plans, and persona identification in addition to our existing collection of templates.
Just because it’s work doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Use Confluence's updated emoji set - yes the shiny emojis you use to text and tweet - or directly upload some custom ones from the emoji picker so you can spread excitement and build on your company's culture.
Whether you’re indicating the priority level of your project as high 🔴, sharing your excitement about an upcoming event 😃, or simply stating what you want for lunch 🍕, emojis help you communicate it all visually.
Consistent editing experience across the Atlassian suite
If you use any of the other products in the Atlassian Cloud Suite, you will have noticed a fresh new, unified design across the entire suite. We are now extending that to provide you with a consistent editing experience across all products. Soon, the way you create pages in Confluence and edit tickets in Jira will work exactly the same.
To help you get stuff done more quickly, we are also introducing a universal shortcut. Quickly insert a date, action, macro, emoji or really anything that you currently do in Confluence products by starting with a “/”. This shortcut will soon be available across all Atlassian cloud products.
More great things to come, but we can’t do it without you!
We are slowly rolling out the new create and edit experience in Confluence to make sure we address all feedback and deliver a product that helps you and your team drive work forward. For further details on what’s changed and how you can make the most of the new experience, check out our documentation. Let us know what you think below in the comments below or submit your feedback from within the product. Your feedback and suggestions help us to create a better experience for everyone. Go ahead, create a new page in Confluence Cloud.
