How to create a personal Confluence space?

brad_krivelow February 22, 2024

Hi, 

I am an admin to my company's Confluence space and have had several users request personal Confluence spaces. I've looked at the documentation but I can't seem to create a personal space. Is there a setting I need to enable?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

As a basic user i can access this in my confluence - can you also try ?

 

Customize your personal space

Spaces are Confluence's way of organizing content into meaningful categories. Think of them as different folders where you can store your work. A personal space is an area in your Confluence site that is automatically created for you to store everything you're working on individually, to keep your to-do lists, and to polish any content before you move it into another shared space.

If a personal space wasn’t automatically created for you, you can create one.

  1. Select your profile icon at the top right of the global navigation bar

  2. Select Add Personal Space

  3. Give your space a name

  4. Select Create

Set up your personal space

You can use your personal space to jot down new ideas, introduce yourself to your team, keep track of tasks, store important items or files, polish content before sharing with others and more. There are three ways to get to your personal space:

  • Select Spaces in the global navigation bar. Your personal space is automatically starred for easy access.

  • Select your profile icon at the top right of the global navigation bar and select Personal Space.

  • Select Home in the global navigation bar. All starred spaces are shown on the right.

To customize your space overview:

  1. Select Overview in the space sidebar. Some basic sections have been added to the page for you, but you can modify it and make it your own. When you select Overview, the page appears, but in order to do anything, you have to edit it.

  2. Select the edit icon at the top right of the Overview page.

  3. Keep the parts of the page that work for you, and browse for other elements to use by selecting the in the toolbar.

  4. Select Publish… when you are done editing your Overview to proceed with publishing it. You can come back anytime and update the page.

Note that in the instructions on the page @Humashankar VJ copied above, the person has to create their own personal space; you cannot use these steps to create a space for them. 

With the instructions in the link @Mikael Sandberg provided, the spaces should be created automatically.

Personal spaces is something that you have to enable if you to go Settings > Global permissions. Once it is enabled users will automatically be given a personal space. You can learn more about it here.

Something to note is that if a user account is disabled their personal space will still be active, so you could end up with a lot of personal spaces if you do not archive/delete them as part of your user off-boarding.
