Concurrent updates to documents


We use Confluence to collaborate and update spreadsheets with information. Most times multiple users make concurrent updates and I am not sure if Confluence has a concept of "Checking out" documents , similar to SharePoint. 


Any help is most appreciated.

This isn't yet a feature for editing documents within Confluence, which I assume you are using Companion App to do. Note that older versions of Confluence did not yet have Companion App.

I created a feature request for this

Please vote on the request that applies to your instance (either Server or Cloud) and watch it for any updates in the future.

Let me know if you have any questions.



Hi Shannon,


Thanks for the response. This feature will be very useful as we are trying to use Confluence on few select projects to replace SharePoint.


I might be wrong but at one point, I did receive the warning message. 



@Shannon S  Hi Shannon - Do you have an update on this feature? Thanks.

Hello Suresh!

Both feature requests are currently still pending. You can vote on them and you will automatically be added to the list of watchers. You can then receive any updates going forward. 

I hope this helps. 



@Shannon S  is the request still pending or has this feature been added?

Hi Tammy,

According to the Jira tickets, the Data Center case has been implemented, and the Cloud is still Gathering Interest. You can see the current status in the top right-hand corner:

  • CONFCLOUD-65595 Implement concurrent editing of documents using Companion App

Please make sure to click Start watching this issue if you want to receive updates about it going forward.

Take care,

Shannon | Atlassian Cloud Support
