How do I organize Confluence Documents alphabetically by default?

Hi,

We've recently migrated our Jira to Cloud and, after that, I could realise the new documents aren't being organised in alphabetic order.

Searching on google, there's some questions about the same situation, however, you can only organise the old ones, which means, after organised, if you decide to create a new one, he's gonna be out of order.

 

To move or reorder a page:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Reorder pages from the bottom of the sidebar
  2. Expand the branches to locate the page you want to move.
  3. Drag the page to a new position in the tree.

Alternatively, you can choose to order a group of child pages alphabetically by choosing the Sort Alphabetically (A-Z) icon. The Sort Alphabetically (A-Z) icon only appears next to the parent page if the page family is currently sorted manually.

If you change your mind, you can use the Undo Sorting icon to revert back to the previous manual page order. This option is only available immediately after sorting the page, while you're still on the Reorder Pages tab, and haven't performed any other action.

 

Looking at our previous Confluence Server, there at least were working. How can I define this organisation by default?

Hi @Felipe Dorocinski,

You are completely right about the behaviour you see. You can sort pages alphabetically at a given point in time, but then as soon as you start adding new pages, they will end up at the bottom of the list below the parent page you are creating them.

This behaviour is by design in cloud, introduced back in 2018 when drag and drop reordering was added as a feature. You can read more about that in this thread from around the time this change was introduced.

The post also references CONFCLOUD-64922, which was closed back in the days. There is an open suggestion in the backlog that you can watch and vote for as well: CONFCLOUD-65454
