What's New in Confluence Cloud – October 2020 Edition

Welcome to the October new feature roundup for Confluence Cloud!

Note: Some of these features are currently rolling out, meaning you may not see them just yet! But they will be coming to soon within the next few weeks!

Inline comments in edit mode

Finally! Breathe a sigh of relief – inline comments in edit mode are here! You can view, create, respond to, or delete comments anywhere without switching back and forth between tabs. We hope you enjoy it! Read more here. Note, this feature is not available in Server or Data Center.


Templates are easy to browse and search

Based on feedback from users, we are introducing a new create flow that now includes template previews and categories. With these changes, you will be able to filter templates by category and preview them before applying a template layout to the page you are working on. Learn more here.


Import from Word Docs and Google Docs

Pull content you’ve created in Google Docs or Microsoft Word into templates so you can transition seamlessly and get to creating faster. This is now available directly in the new template experience described above. Read more here.
