Is there a windows client for Confluence?

I just lost 1,5 hours of work on a project timeline in confluence (webpage lost connection and then the whole browser crashed).

Is there a windows client for confluence?

I hope that a dedicated client software would save everything at least locally so that nothing is lost even when the internet connection gets lost. In such a case a later sync would restore all the work.

I searched the whole atlassian webpage but I did not find any client software. Even the mobile app (which is very limited) is not mentioned.

Yes, the draft is empty. The "project timeline generator" (kind of a plugin?) didn't transmit and save any data during the edit process. And then everything crashed and was lost.

Is there a client?

@Johannes Sperling  Welcome to the community!

The simplest answer to your question is there is not Windows client for Confluence.

Thanks, although it is disappointing.


I am posting on this old thread to see if there has been any change in the last 1.5 years and that we have any Desktop client for windows to access our confluence pages.

Also checking if there's a Desktop client yet.  I'm tired of having to run everything in a slow web browser I don't like!

Yes, I am having the same problem with getting a browser message saying "we lost connection".  Even trying to do simple edits is becoming time consuming and frustrating.  I might just have to go back to OneNote or Google Docs or something else if Atlassian cannot provide what I need to be effective and efficient.

That sounds like the real-time editor component is having problems. Are you using Confluence Cloud?

Try this test to see it's an issue with your Websocket connection:

A windows client won't help if this isn't working.
