I’m Nick Bourlier, a backend software engineer working on Confluence Cloud. Our team has been busy working on some awesome features that make it easier for you to find your content quickly! I’m excited to share with you how we’ve updated the icon experience for your Spaces in Confluence.
New Spaces will now have randomized, fun icons for identification
In the past, every time you created a team (non-personal) Space, a blue folder was generated as the default icon. This led to a bunch of Spaces with boring blue folder icons that looked something like this:
Now, when you create a Space, a new colorful icon will randomly be selected and set as the default! This will help you find Spaces faster since they are more easily distinguishable from one another. Plus you can customize the icon.
Don’t worry - Spaces that you’ve already created will not be affected by this change. Plus, Personal Spaces will still have the user’s profile picture as the icon, just like before!
Editing a Space icon is now even easier
The old experience when uploading and editing a custom Space icon was functional, but certainly not pretty. We’ve refreshed the experience to meet the latest Atlassian design guidelines.
The Gallery tab allows you to pick from a colorful set of icons if you don’t want to upload your own custom one. And if you would like to start over, the Restore default button restores the icon to the same one that was randomly generated when the Space was created.
This feature is currently in the process of being gradually rolled out, and it should find its way to your Confluence instance soon. If you have any feedback, please reach out by commenting on this post. Our goal is to make your experience as smooth as possible so you can easily find your content and get back to work!
