Introducing Private Notes for Confluence - Early Access Program

Updated: Feb 15, 2023
The application process for Confluence Private Notes EAP is now closed. We are excited to be actively piloting with our EAP group!


Have you ever wanted to jot something down quickly in Confluence? Maybe you want to write down a few to-dos, an action item to follow up on, or a brilliant idea you had while reviewing a Confluence page?

📝 Now you can with Private Notes! Quickly open up a note, privately save your thoughts, and easily access them anytime.

The Early Access Program (EAP) for Private Notes is designed to give customers a chance to test and use a new functionality that Atlassian is exploring.

I always have at least one fully restricted Confluence page where I put down my thoughts or rough notes about an upcoming project.

So this feature is an absolute game-changer for me!

I would love this feature, it would eliminate all the sticky notes currently sitting on my desk because I didn't want to flood all the other Confluence users with my personal notes.

Would love to be able to create Tasks Assignment in the private note. I'm over having to delete a task assignment from a page, if the page is intended to become a formal document, like a Policy Document.

Nice!

Will this feature be available for all customers? Or only for premium and enterprise plans?

@Keith Sottung that is a great idea! If the private note could have the option to create a task in Jira.

Great addition and as @Andy Gladstone said, it will reduce switching tabs / programs and make Confluence the go to place for both permanent and temporary notes/documents.

 

Would be super cool if this feature could move over to Jira as well in the future, with synced notes between both.

Example when it would be utilized: Sitting in a standup discussing the plan for the day, noting down key points in Notes while looking at the Jira board and then move over to Conf to put the notes into real text.

Looking forward to seeing this

Would love to see fewer fetures, not more = : ) 

Will this also be available for Data Center?

Thanks! Look forward to trying it out!

Is this per page? If not, could you please add an option to have notes per page?

And, in the event of a miracle of this being added to Jira, please also allow for private notes per issue/epic/story.

Thank you!

@Divya SriramI'm not sure if I'm doing anything wrong, or is the feature not rolled out yet?

I have been added to the EAP group, but I can't seem to find any pinned instructions.

I have also enrolled my workspace through the form, but there hasn't appeared any new features so far :)

Oh I signed up for this in a heartbeat. I'd LOVE to take this for a test drive! I currently use my personal space for this, but if this does what it looks like it does, it eliminates that extra step of having to switch to my personal space before creating a new note, or moving the note to my personal space before I publish it.

I'm my department's technical writer. Notes are a CONSTANT in my life, so this would streamline my life SIGNIFICANTLY.

Thanks for the feedback folks, looking forward to starting our EAP soon. 

@Tobias H - thanks for the question and your patience. We haven't launched the EAP yet, we're in the process of closing out sign ups soon and reviewing our tenant sign up. Everyone that signed up will receive an email about next steps once we start the EAP!

@Divya Sriram if late entry is still possible, please let me know how we can join the EAP. Thanks

Would like to join the EAP, but the link says the 'Sorry, this survey is not currently active.'.

@Nicholas DAmato try to join the group using the provided url and then sign in while prompted - should work then (at least worked in that way in my case).

Would love this feature in Jira Service Management as well. It would be super handy to make private notes to myself while I'm working on an issue.

Exactly what I'm looking for. Any news on when we can expect this feature to be available publicly?

Any update on when this would be publicly available?
