What's New in Confluence Cloud – September 2019 Edition

Hi everyone!

We’re excited to tell you all about new features in Confluence Cloud to check out this month. We’re also sharing a tip for you power Confluence users out there. Let us know if you’ve tried any of these features and how they are working for your teams.

Set team goals with templates
We’ve recently added a new set of goal-setting templates to Confluence. These were inspired by Atlassian’s Team Playbook so teams have one place to set, track, and stay focused on goals. These templates – Goals, Signals, and Measures; OKRs; and Project Poster – can be found in the “Create” module.

Use the better than ever Google Drive integration
We’ve refreshed the Google Drive integration in Confluence to make it easier for you to show supporting data or make your business case with slides. You can embed and even edit, all your Google Drive sheets, slides, and docs from within Confluence. You can also adjust the height and width of these elements and go full-screen.

@ mention teams in Confluence
You can now @ mention teams on a Confluence page or in a comment to notify the entire team without having to type out (or remember) everyone’s name. Use this productivity hack to keep teams of people updated on your progress.

Make your pages full-width
You asked and we delivered. Now you have the flexibility to make information-rich pages full-width, so your readers don’t have to keep scrolling down a page. Toggle between full or fixed width with the toolbar.

Confluence Cloud Premium
We introduced Confluence Cloud's Premium plan this month to give site admins with growing teams more visibility and control. The plan includes everything in our Confluence Standard plan and more:

  • Site, space, and page analytics show how your team uses Confluence and make reporting and decision-making easy.

  • Admin key gives site admins temporary access to restricted pages so they can solve permissions problems fast.

  • Unlimited storage, a 99.9% uptime SLA backed by service credits, and Premium support available 24/7 means your teams everywhere can stay productive with uptime, all the time.

  • New features like inspect permissions and external collaboration are coming soon.

Site admins can try Confluence Cloud Premium free for 30 days by going to “Manage Subscriptions” in their admin portal.

Power feature tip – Page Properties & Page Properties Report macro
The Page Properties and Page Properties Report work together to show summary information from several pages on a single page. If you want to summarize decisions across a project, you can select page properties from numerous decision pages and pull them into a single reporting page. Use the /page properties slash command shortcut or find the macro using the + dropdown in the top tool bar. Learn even more.

That’s a wrap for this month! We’ve got lots of new things cooking in Confluence so stay tuned for more updates.

Looking forward to standard wiki markdown coming back for Confluence pages. It's pretty painful to import tables of data without it.

I'm slightly confused by the full-width page feature.  We've had this feature in our cloud instance since August.  It's also noted: "...make information-rich pages full-width, so your readers don’t have to keep scrolling down a page".  How is full-width related to scrolling down?

I liked the old jira more than the new jira. 

The new one is not so user friendly. I hope you will do well in case of the Confluence.

Really need to bring back the "undo" button. The undo button behaviour on the browser is VERY different than what old Confluence, especially when working with tables.

Good Additions. One of the most important feature that I was asking is sharing the same user story between two teams? 

Imagine that there is a user story.

There is a UI team A and Backend team B

how will I make sure that the story collaborated between A and B. dependent tasks and velocity of the story etc?

All good additions - now if the table editor would get fixed it would be wonderful.


Or let us go back to the old one.
