"Favorites" recently changed to "Saved for Later" and is confusing my users because Favorites makes more sense for favoriting/bookmarking frequently visited content. "Saved for Later" is more like a document draft. How can we change it back to "Favorites"?

Hi Bryan,

The 'Favorites' title has changed to 'Save for Later' in the latest Cloud releases because it's actually changed the feature meaning itself, since this is now used to save pages that you do not have time to review at that specific moment, as stated in this KB article:

"Saving pages for later helps you access them quickly from the dashboard or from your profile.

No time to read that page now?  No problem, hit Save for later and it'll be waiting for you on the dashboard when you have more time.   It's also a great place to store those pages that you use on a day to day basis.

Save for later was previously called Favourites."




The 5.10 Upgrade Notes states:

We've renamed the Favorite pages feature to Saved for later. This is just a name change; the essential behavior of this feature hasn't changed.

People using "Favorites" to bookmark pages they are interested can't relate to this change of wording. Can you change it back please?

Just encountered this.  "Save for later" makes no sense.  Favorite and Bookmark are industry terms that have been used for decades and are clear, concise, and globally understood.  Save For Later terminology seems like a draft.  Why not use the industry standard and historical (to confluence) term?  I downvote this change.
