Checked task become unchecked when editing a page

We notice that sometimes task that are checked on a page become unchecked when the page is edited. Can anyone explain why this happens? Problem is: sometimes tasks are not affected

because there is collaborative editing activated & in the shared draft the task has been unchecked & the draft has not been published.




that doesn't work. I either get a warning or a correct result. 


We still get unchecked tasks, no collaborative editing, not repoducable by us, but occurs.

Hi, we have exactly the same issue. Tasks sometimes get unchecked after editing a page. Not reproducable, just one of many tasks gets unchecked...

Anyone more info ?

Is there already an issue registered for this ?

I raised a support ticket in mean time (CSP-282047).

I think it would help if everybody raises this issue to Altassian Support, so they understand there is really an issue. That cannot be reproduced easily unfortunately...

Hello Marc,

I have the same problem.  How was your ticket resolved ? What is your version of Confluence ? We are running 7.4.4.

I know for a fact that it has nothing to do with collaborative editing in my case because I have seen the behavior on pages that I am the only one that has access to them because of permissions.

Hi, the issue is not solved yet.

We could trace down all occurrences to a combination of checking a task without editing the page, and using collaborative editing while keeping draft pages open for a long time.

Anyway, if you have a similar issue (with maybe another cause), you SHOULD open a support ticket to raise Atlassian's attention to this!

We've got that issue too. Was able to reproduce it twice, but I dont know how exactly I did that and what causes it. Contacted Atlassian support.

Anyone got a helpful answer yet?

We have same problem.

Hi everybody,

This does appear to be a bug in Confluence (7.x.x versions), which appears to center around 'draft' and 'current' task states. We have a bug ticket opened already which you can find here:

If you are affected, I urge you to click the 'This affects my team' button at the top of right of the page and 'watch' the page going forward for any new updates.
