How to allow collaboration on a page?

Confluence is great at editing a page, but our staff universally hate it for its limiations and we have had to cancel the subscription.

One of the main gripes is that there seems to be no way for a group of people to see and edit the same page. For example, we ahve a space for each dept, e.g. one for HR, one for Dev, one for Project Management etc.

Now a group of peole spanning these departments needs to work on a page, e.g. a new legal policy or hr policy.

If the page resides in one of the spaces, there is no way to allow others to see it, without giving them permssion for the entire space. I.e. when you look at the permission of a page, you can only restruct it further, not open it up.

Is there anyway round this?

Obviosly, we could setup a new space create and new group with those relevant people in, or make everything public, but neither of these solutions is tenable for every ad-hoc cross department document. So we are using google docs more and more, which is a shame.

Hi, sadly by now I'm not aware of anything that can make this work. It really is a shame because it's something very important. Should be something like page restrictions (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Page+Restrictions#PageRestrictions-TheConfluencePermissionsandPageRestrictionsHierarchy) but the opposite (allowing pages).

I'm sure you are aware of this:https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5095 but just to encourage people on keep pushing for this to work out.

Cheers.
