Add space shortcut links in "new look" Confluence Cloud

Susan Ostreicher Community Champion Aug 17, 2017

According to this article, "you can still add shortcut links to any page, space, or external URL in a space's sidebar" in the new look Confluence.  But I can't figure out how to add a shortcut link in the new experience, and I feel like I must be missing something obvious.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi Susan,

While displaying the "Overview" page, and only this one, don't you see the "+ Add shortcut" option below the "Space shortcurts" part in the left pane ? Did you also check you're a space admin ?

Hi Bruno, 

Thanks for your response! Here's a screenshot of the space sidebar when I'm on the space overview page.  I can't find "Space shortcuts" or "+ Add shortcut".  (The + icon is to create a space.)  I did confirm I'm a space admin. 


Susan, you need to enlarge the side bar, the default key to do so is [

You'll see then the option as shown in the screnshot:

Wow, that was well hidden.  Thank you, Bruno!
