This is a kind of survey, really. Please comment below! 😉
I'd like to know if you Admins would regularly visit, if available, a page that'd list all recently updated KB articles.
Like this example:
That's quite simple to do — what's tricky is to distinguish between Cloud and Server/DC articles up front (inside each article there are notes about the product type).
usually I would be searching for articles based on current interests/work
But this might lead me to look at features I’m not aware of.
Indeed, @Tom Lister
It was meant to be something Admins could quickly 👀 and keep up-to-date with the many how-to articles.
These "recently created" KBs list was something we started bringing into weekly support meetings here and we thought maybe the Community could benefit from. It's just a POC/MVP 😉 (also, the pages published here are monthly updates)
Sounds very useful, and I'd prefer that it be split between Cloud and Datacenter. After all, very few of us will have both. :)
I'd expect that putting a watch on the page to get the updates would be nice.
Can you lock the comments on the page, so we don't get the spam/advertisement junk triggering notifications?
The page would be available through the Scroll Viewport app, so no comments would be allowed. Is that what you referred to?
I believe comments on KBs were only available before Atlassian made use of the viewport, when everybody would just see the KBs through Confluence's "editor interface".
Sounds good @Rodrigo Martinez . I guess I'm just tired of deleting emails from spammy notifications on community topics. :)
Ohh you talking about this here thread? ehm... the point was actually that many people would reply here! 😅
You can scroll back to right below the post above and click on the "👁️ Watching" button so to unwatch the topic and stop the spamming, maybe. :)
That "recently updated KB" page would not spam notifications as it's just a Confluence macro. The content would be updated without the page being updated itself... though a workaround is for someone (me?) to keep updating the page on a monthly basis with the "KBs updated this previous month". 🤔
Sorry, to be clear I meant more of advertising spam, not noisy but on-topic messages.
It's still kind of a POC, but gets the work done 😉
I really like the idea. It shows that there is activity in updating the knowledge base, also the initiative itself shows Atlassian is caring for the content.
For the content itself I am with @Dave Liao - it would have to be that a specific updated content is of personal interest or offers something new to explore, which is totally fine!
I just suspect that in the feed there will be something specific I would be looking for the given day (but who knows ... :) - in general a very good idea!
Thanks for chiming in, @Daniel Ebers !
Yeah, it was meant as a "recent highlights" stuff. Something to quickly lay your eyes on and maybe something'll stick to your mind for when you come across similar issues.
Anyway, it's a POC/MVP, so let's see how really useful this is!
