Is there a way to publish changes that you've made without publishing others' changes?

Upon trying to publish changes to a confluence page, I received a pop-up that if I publish I will also publish changes by another user. Is there a way to only publish your own changes? 

1 answer

No, it is expected behavior of Confluence Collaborative editing:

Collaborative editing introduces a new type of draft, a shared draft. Previously, when you edited a page but didn't save it, Confluence would create a draft that was only visible to you (a personal draft). Now, Confluence creates a shared draft whenever anyone edits a page. All page editors work on this same shared draft, and it exists until someone publishes the page. 

I receive an error when trying to publish the other user's edits. The other user is getting the same error. "Unable to communicate with Server. Saving is not possible at the moment." The unpublished changes button at the top of the page is active. Any thoughts on how to get this page to publish?
