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?


I think this new feature is called  "Collaborative Editing" in upcoming v6
