Is there any chance to see all pages which have unpublished changes?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Confluence 6.0 Release Notes

I really love the fact that I can safe drafts now before I release them!! This is a wonderful new feature which we will love to use.

But if I have various changes made on various pages I might loose track of all the pages which have unpublished changes. Is there

a) any indication that if I click edit that there are changes in the page which have not been published yet? (and which ones) and

b) any page or chance to see where in all my confluence pages there are unpublished changes which I still have to work on?

Thanks for your help

I'd like the same thing as you, Ann-Katrin.

I need to approve changes to pages before they get published so it would be very useful to have a place where all the "changed but unpublished" pages are listed so I can easily see changes that others have made and then approve and publish them. 

Any suggestions?

Plus 1 for this. I've edited a page which I am being told has changes have been made by others, yet I'm unable to ignore changes or see them

I believe you can see your drafts under your profile

Thanks, Per, for your answer.

You are right: the drafts of completely new pages which have never been published can be found under profile > drafts.

But existing pages which have been changed and where the changes have not been published are not listed there. So I wondered if there is any indication on the page if there are unpublished changes in the background and if I could see a list of changes which I still have to work on.

I just ran into this myself. Unpublished modifications to existing pages aren't considered drafts, and basically disappear.

The only place that you can see these listed is on your personal dashboard, in the left sidebar item "Recently Worked On".

In a stock confluence configuration, your personal dashboard is supposed to show up as the toplevel page whenever you sign into Confluence. However, we set our site to use one of our wiki pages as the toplevel page, and I can't find any other way in the Confluence UI to get to my personal dashboard.

So here's the url to get to your personal dashboard:

https://<confluence-url>/my/recent-work

I ended up adding this as a link on our site toplevel page. 

Hey Willis,

 

We had the same issue!

Thanks for your tip. Your URL gave me a 404 but I worked out that it needed an extra path:

https://<confluence-url>/wiki/my/recent-work

Cheers :)

Hi,

The only out-of-the-box solution for this I could find is asking the people who are editing the existing pages to:

1) not press the Update button, only the Close

2) add a tag (like 'awaiting_approval') to the page before they go away

 

That way you can create a page for yourself with the 'Content by label' macro and use the 'awaiting_approval' label to list those pages. Once you are happy with the content, publish/update the page and remove the tag.

Obviously the solution heavily relies on people following those 2 rules, but at least the concept works. :)

 

Thanks,

Peter
