What's New in Confluence Cloud – July, Aug, Sept 2022 Edition

Hi there, Community!

We know life can get busy so we're always looking for new ways to streamline your work in Confluence. With that in mind, excited to bring you new embedded page options, simpler navigation, upgraded shortcuts, and much more. Read on for the latest features!

Drafts are now easier to find than ever 👋

Don't worry about losing track of unfinished pages – drafts are now viewable in the Page Tree, Home, Recent, and more – so you can pick up right where you left off. Check it out.

Embedded Confluence Pages in Jira Work Management 🤝

Goodbye, tab-switching! Confluence Pages are now embedded into Jira Work Management projects, so you can document notes, track outcomes, and stay aligned on work, all in one place. See how it’s done.

Edit Confluence pages within Smart Links 🏎
Within the popular Smart Links feature, you can now edit Confluence pages directly through the embed view. That means more streamlined work! Try it yourself.

Editing pages just got easier
If you often edit long Confluence pages, you've likely experienced the annoyance of scrolling down the entire page once you enter edit mode. Not anymore! Now with quick edit, you’re automatically taken to the same spot you were viewing. Check it out.



Create templates in full-width ↔️
Utilizing full-width mode is popular for viewing large tables or visuals. Now, you can create and edit templates in full-width too! Check it out.

Confluence shortcuts got an upgrade 🎉
Rearrange or remove shortcuts with one click, and enjoy icons that clarify the type of content you’re looking at (and add some color, too ✨.) See the new look.

Fantastic updates and roll outs dear @Reni Carlson 

"Drafts location" is one of the area that's been long awaited in my organization. Also I see posts on this community for the same >> super helpful addition.

Hi @Reni Carlson These roll outs are going to be very helpful : ) 

My favorite is Smart links embed - I am able to embed a confluence page within another, but when i click on the edit icon within the embedded page , it opens in a new tab and not the way its demonstrated in the video above.

Appreciate if we should make any other setting change.


Special thanks for the "start edit where you are" function!

But it is not "ctrl + E" that takes you to edit on a PC. It is just "E". Bug in the information package :)

@Anders Eriksson great catch! I've flagged with my design team and they're updating

Hi @Divya Mona The Smart Link embed feature roll out is still in progress and will be coming to you soon. :slight_smile: It has not been rolled out to all customers yet which is why you still experience the "old" behavior of opening a new tab.

@Peter Quick looks like it's functioning as it should be. RSS feeds don't normally have styles associated with them, it's not really a link meant to open and be useful in the browser window but ingested by an RSS reader.

Thanks @Gabriel McKenna ,

Here's a screenshot of what happens when the link is clicked.2022-09-20 07_55_29-https___community.atlassian.com_tnckb94959_rss_search_q=tags_(whats-new).png

Hi @Peter Quick  - appreciate you flagging this. I'm seeing the same issue. I've flagged with my team and should be replacing with working link shortly :) 

Confluence on YouTube - very nice - unfortunately not in our language.

We have now created 85 Confluence learning videos in our language for our end users on Confluence usage for our corporate WiKi, which are kept up to date.

This is cool and all, but when are ya'll going to fix the issue where you can't put an info panel in the middle of an ordered list?

How about fixing all the outstanding editor issues where you removed functionality that used to exist in the old editor? Until that's done I can't convert all my existing documentation from prior to being forced on to the Cloud edition - not that really bothers me because the legacy editor, even with its issues, is far better than the new one.
