Edit Confluence pages faster

Hello Atlassian Community,

My name is Siddharth. I am a Software Engineer at Atlassian, and I am super excited to introduce a quicker way to start editing a page.

Before, it took at least two clicks to edit a page – navigating to the published page, and clicking the pencil ✎ or using the "e" keyboard shortcut.

Now, we’re making it quicker to begin editing a page. You can immediately edit a page from a couple places.

Recent Menu


Home page


This shortcut to edit eliminates the extra page click and an extra page load required to open the page; hence, making it quicker to access the editable version of an existing page.

Our pursuit of improving your editing experience does not stop here, we have a bunch of improvements and new features lined up that are aimed at making your editing experience fun and fast, so stay tuned and leave your feedback below.

@Siddharth Reddy Malkireddy - does this only apply to the Recents menu -- and not search, any macros, or the page tree in the sidebar?

Hi @Ryan Beller, thanks for the question. Currently this feature only applies to the Recents menu. However, we are looking into other places where this action would be useful.
