We've been using Confluence for years as a small company with users who are well-trained to fill in the "what did you change" field when editing a page.
We were recently purchased by a much larger company, and although we've done training, due to hundreds of users in multiple geographical locations, I can no longer manage things page by page.
Is there any way to enforce the use of that field when editing a page (of any kind)? I'm open to add-ons, if required.
@Esther Strom not sure if you are aware, but the "what did you change" field has actually been removed in the new editor in Cloud:
Atlassian say this is because:
"it had almost no usage, but added significant visual clutter and complexity to Confluence. Instead of using change comments, you can see the difference between published versions of a page in the page history."
Hi @Esther Strom ,
The Publish "on click" action would need to be modified to validate the "what did you change" box has content. This sounds like a feature request.
I think you will find more marketplace options when it comes to page publishing options / approvals versus requiring comments.
Hope this helped some :)
Thanks for the response, but
So it sounds like the simple answer is "no".
ETA that I've submitted a suggestion to Atlassian; if anyone else finds this question, please vote for it: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-67035
