Add space shortcut links in "new look" Confluence Cloud

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!

Hi @Bruno Miretti, Are there limits on the types of pages that can be added as a shortcut? My pages do not appear as options to be added after I click the "Add shortcut" button. 

The page appeared on my colleagues computer when they tried to add it as a shortcut. All good! Thanks! 

@Bruno Miretti 

Thanks for "[" key!
Good Lord I was looking for this solution.

Is there a reason why the Add Shortcut option would be missing? Is it a users permission or space setting? Where can I turn it on?

Hi Ashley, I'm also running into the same issue!

@Alex I figured it out! (For myself, at least.)

When you hover over the side panel, you should see an edit pencil at the bottom. Then you will see the view to add a shortcut.


Thanks for the tip! I realized that even though I'm an admin, I am not the admin on the space. Only found that out by creating my own space and seeing the edit button there. 

Thanks Ashley!

Thanks. This removed my confusion, as I couldn't see the "Add shortcut" link either.
