Lost draft template



Is there somewhere I can access templates that have not yet been published? I spent quite a while creating a new template and navigated back to the Activity Feed accidentally. I hadn't yet published the template, and now can't find it anywhere.


Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Giorgio,

Thank you for contacting us about this.

I'm very sorry to tell you that Confluence does not create drafts for in-progress templates, and it won't be possible for you to recover your data within Confluence.

I've created a feature request below because I believe that it should be possible for users to save Confluence templates as drafts:

I have included the following suggestions in that request:

  1. A way to manually create a draft before allowing a template to go live.
  2. A way to automatically create drafts, like Synchrony does for pages.
  3. A way to warn a user before clicking away that their work will not be saved.

I've included these suggestions in the above feature request, but please feel free to add any suggestions you might have as well in order to solve this requirement.

As a workaround to avoid losing form data in the future, I use an add-on called Typio Form recovery which saves (nearly) everything I type into a form in my browser. I can recover it later whenever I inadvertently navigate away from a page. There are a few other add-ons that do the same thing. I would recommend having a look at this list: 3 Browser Extensions to Save What You Type into Online Forms and Text Boxes 



Thanks a lot for your reply Shannon, and thanks for adding this feature request for me! I think this would be very helpful, fingers crossed we see something implemented here soon.


Best regards,

Hi Giorgio,

You're welcome. I'll be watching out for this one as well.

Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week!



+1 on this. I just lost hours of work on a template I didn't complete.
