Confluence built in approval document control?

We have confluence cloud and were told there was an approval system for documentation.  For example, I assign John Smith to look at the document, make sure it's correct, then approve it.  Thus making it a confirmed document.

Yeah, you will have to use an add-on. Comala Workflow is another great name in the marketplace, I believe it's now much easier to implement. 

Apparently the app is now called Document Management. It's a good change, more specific to what it solves.

Good to know that, thanks for your information.

Hi @Capi _resolution_ thanks for the recommendation!


Hi @Jonathan Mayer, as @Capi _resolution_ and @marc -Collabello--Phase Locked- have indicated, you will need an add in from the Marketplace. 

If you want to learn more about Comala Document Management, you can check out our webinars

Kind regards

Hi @Jonathan Mayer 

There is no built in approval system in Confluence Cloud.  However there are a couple of add-ons in the marketplace which make this possible.

For example, we make Document Control for Confluence Cloud , which allows you to designate reviewers and different types of signatures for approval.  There's a free trial.

After approval, you keep a record of when which document version was approved.

Very good !!!
