Does Confluence Server still have the "What's Changed" comment box?

We currently use Confluence Cloud as part of our Quality Management System. Confluence Cloud has now made a design decision that is pushing us and a lot of other users into considering other platforms because the "What's Changed" comment field has been removed with no future plans of reinstating it (see .  

Is this feature still available in Confluence Server without requiring customization?

Update from CONFCLOUD-65695 Bring back the "what's changed" comment box:

Thanks for all the feedback on this ticket. Given the amount of requests we've started to explore what a potential quick win may look like to re-introduce this. That being said, we still can't guarantee a time frame for this - we will make sure to update this ticket as we know more on our end.

In the meantime, if you have the legacy template available - which most of you should have - you can keep using that to create new pages and still keep using this feature. If you don't have that template, you can reach out to support and we'll be happy to enable it for you.

Hello there, @Kim Hirschman ! Thank you for starting another thread here in the community. You and many other customer might have the same question in mind.

To be perfectly clear about this field in Confluence Cloud, here is an excerpt from our report asking to bring it back:

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your feedback on bringing back the "What's Changed" comment box when publishing a page in the new editor. To set the right expectations and as a follow up update, we currently have no plans in the near term to implement this suggestion in comparison with other feature requests. You can track our upcoming roadmap here: If we have any updated plans, we will update the thread here. Thank you again for your feedback.


And here is a screenshot from our Cloud Roadmap that shows this decision:


Here is the link to our roadmap:

Moving to the Self-Hosted side of things, we do have this feature natively. To use it you will need zero customization of your instance. You can check more details on it here:


Here is a screenshot of what it looks like in Confluence Server:

I would still encourage you to go into the existing ticket for the removal of this feature and voice your opinions about this decision there. It can help the teams to better understand the impact this choice has on customers! We value everyone´s feedback. This conversation is what allows us to understand our customer needs and how to serve them!


I hope this answers your question, Kim! Looking forward to your reply.
