I am having trouble editing space shortcuts - any ideas of what I am doing wrong?

I have followed this and still can't seem to work it out- is "space tools" now "space settings"?


Try this out:

  1. Choose Space tools > Configure sidebar from the bottom of the sidebar (or the cog menu if your sidebar is collapsed)
  2. Add a space shortcut by clicking +Add link
    Shortcuts can be to Confluence pages or spaces, or to any other content on the web. Try linking to this blog post, which mentions Teams in Space (we're always after a plug at Teams in Space HQ!)

You can also hide things – like the space's blog – in the sidebar, if they're of no use in the space.

The sidebar is pretty easy, right? You'll be schooling those recruits in no time. Next up: Impress them with your knowledge of keyboard shortcuts.

Hello Susan,

Is this page the documentation you're following? If so, it is intended for Confluence Server and not for Confluence Cloud:


I could not find the related documentation for Confluence Cloud, but here is how you can add a shortcut to your space sidebar:

  • Hover on the sidebar, a pen button should appear. Click on it to edit:



  • Then you just click on "Add shortcut" to configure it
  • Click on Done to save

Hope this helps,

- Manon

YES! Thank-you so much, I found the pen :)

Glad it helped! :)

Hey @Manon Soubies-Camy , I am following this article (not cloud, but server), and I still don't know how to edit space shortcuts. 

- It doesn't seem to appear in any of the Space Tools. Would you able to help me find this? 


Nevermind Found it!

Thank yoU!

In confluence cloud the pencil appears.  You can add the link and title click add shortcut and save.  However the shortcut doesn't appear.  Why would this happen? 

Hi- we have a similar issue. But the pen doesn't show up for a user who we believe should be able to edit the shortcuts. What might cause this?
