I inserted a Snag It picture and all of my work disappeared. I tried back but it was gone. Page is unpublished. Confluence has been doing saves. Is there anyway to go back to a saved, unpublished version?
I've got a similar problem, however, it just relates to text edits (in Confluence Cloud). I have edited a page for quite a while earlier today, but wasn't ready to publish it yet. As usual, on the lower bar it told me that Confluence saved the changes. But, after taking a break and coming back to the Confluence tab, everything was gone and back to a slightly previous state (not a complete reset, but like 80%). Is there any way to recover those edits?
The same exact problem here. I even shared the document with some of my team members for review, so the changes must have been saved for others to view them online. Once I came back to make final changes and publish it 90% of the work was gone. None of the solutions from the comments below worked for me, unfortunately. Is there any way to recover the changes made to the draft?
Same here!! I was so frustrated because the same thing happened to me( after an hour of work) and I went to Recent>Draft but the page wasn't there!
But I figured out how to retrieve the page I was working on! First, you will need to go to Recent>drafts. Then, click on "Worked On". Once there, go to the link where the last page you worked on is. Once there, you should see a tag in gray "Unpublished changes". You will need to click on the pencil icon and voila, you should now see all the changes that were made! Just go ahead and save the page and it should now refresh.
What worked for me was go to my chrome history from the day and time I edited that page (unpublished) and found the link to that edited page and it had all my changes. Phew. It wasn't in my Confluence drafts or anywhere. This was the only thing that worked.
Hope this helps someone.
Thank You! I forgot to publish something yesterday after making extensive edits and your tip saved me - looking through Chrome's History.
With there being no real manual save function, I kind of assumed it just kept it as a draft or something in edit mode and closed the browser. I think that might just be for unpublished stuff. So you just get used to the idea of not saving anything ever.
Just lost an hour to this. When I tried publishing an edit, I received an error stating that pages couldn't have identical titles. Then I stupidly and quickly closed the draft, trusting it to be saved so I could go back to it to publish properly.
For what it's worth, at least one other team member experienced the same thing today and lost their edits to another page.
Proper warnings should be provided if there is a service outage (i.e., telling people to save a copy offline before leaving the page), or proper offline support should be added.
I suspect because Atlassian have made such a behemoth, that is so unmaintainable, that all their efforts go into maintenance code rather than what is reasonably expected in terms of feature addition.
