I am on Confluence 1000.847.1
My sidebar used to have a nice nav-tree that included important pages for my space. Now I see a sidebar that simply has "Discover, My Work, My spaces" that are unrelated to the space.
I feel really stupid that I'm missing some important announcement or change. Whats going on?
You are describing the global dashboard (the default home page for your entire Confluence site) - this isn't within any one space - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/the-dashboard-724764714.html
It is possible to make a space your default site home page - perhaps someone has changed this setting?
(This is an admin function - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/configuring-the-site-home-page-724765517.html)
James, thank you for the answer but I am talking about this sidebar
There IS a space specific sidebar. I see settings for it and it used to show up when I visited a space's default page. Now its gone and I want to know if it is possible to get it back.
Yes, that screenshot is the sidebar you should see when ever you are browsing a space.
However, if you are seeing the dashboard sidebar with "Discover, My Work, My spaces" while browsing the pages in a specific space then I would raise a support ticket. I'm not aware of any configuration options in Confluence Cloud that would allow you to use it in a space (as you have highlighted - the functionality it provides doesn't make sense in the context of a space).
Atlassian made a major UI change recently which affects the sidebar / page tree. For example you don't see the page tree anymore when you switch to a different space (but it will be displayed if you open a specific page in that space). The page tree itself it no longer configurable as it used to be.
Overall a couple of changes, and not for the better.
