How to avoid parallel confluence editing/modification/overwriting (If someone have old draft)?

The goal here is to know when a modification on a page could be overwritten by someone else (which is the trigger for this ticket) and how one would avoid this to happen. How to avoid parallel editing and drafting of confluence page?

Firstly multiple editors will be flagged

But the editors can set the Page Restrictions to just themselves as the allowed editor for the duration of their editing

I believe the new versions of Confluence have a specific multiple editing mechanism now

Hi @Rodney Hughes,

Thanks for that, I am using Atlassian Confluence 5.9.7. Could you please explain me how the mechanism can be used?
