    What’s New in Confluence Cloud

    Page Editor

    The new Confluence editor is fast and you can edit without losing your place. No more scrolling up to select Edit, then scrolling back down to make your changes. Confluence will keep you in the same place when you choose between viewing and editing a page.

    E is the keyboard shortcut for Edit mode

    New Editor vs Legacy Editor

    Newly created pages in Cloud will default to the new Editor. Migrated content will default to the legacy editor, and pages must be manually converted to use the new editor. Don’t worry - converting is easy.

    How to tell the difference?

    In the legacy editor, the Publish button was in the bottom left corner of the screen (below left).

    In the Cloud editor, the Publish button is in the top right corner of the screen (below right).

    How to convert a page to the new editor

    1. Once you open the editor for a migrated page, it will open in the legacy editor.

    2. To preview your page in the cloud editor, select Preview in the bottom left-hand corner.

    3. You will then have three options: Cancel, Preview, and Convert page. It is recommended that you ALWAYS preview before converting.

    4. When you are in the preview screen, a blue banner will appear at the top to let you know you are only previewing. It is best to compare this preview to the legacy space to make note what will need adjusting. Then, select “Convert page” and make any necessary edits in the newly converted page.

    *Meanwhile, you do not have to convert your space. You can continue to use the legacy editor for migrated pages.

    Slash Commands

    Slash commands can be used for inserting macros. When you enter a slash and begin to type the name of the macro or a potential search term, a list of macros will populate, and you can select the one you want.

    Type a / and begin typing a term that might appear in the macro. A list will populate and you can select the one you need.

    *You can also access these macros by selecting the + at the far right of the editor menu.

    Cover photos and emojis

    Make your page stand out by adding an image above the title. Choose from hundreds of stock images.

    Insert Tables

    You can now embed tables into your page that can be manipulated much more easily than previous tables in our legacy instance. You can use the table button on the editor menu bar or simply use the / and begin to type table.

    The table begins as a 3x3 display but can be edited to add more rows and columns. Then you can easily add color to the cells, merge and split cells, change the width of a cell or extend the whole table to full width, and even insert a chart based on the data in that table.

    Scheduled Publish

    You can now schedule your page or blog to publish on a specific, future date and time.

    Select Schedule Publish from the More actions (…) menu.

    Select date and time and select Schedule

    Page Status

    Page status lets viewers know if page content is in Draft / In Progress / Final status. 

    Select Add status from under the page breadcrumbs while in edit mode.

    Presenter Mode

    Present your content in a streamlined fashion, without side panels, options menus, and in-line comments.

    Select the More Actions drop down menu (the three dots on the top right side) and then select Presenter mode.

    Atlassian Teams

    Atlassian teams is a new way to collaborate with those you work with regularly.

    Any Confluence user can create a Team and add users to that team. You can share pages with a specific team instead of sharing with each individual member. You can also @mention your whole team in a page or inline comments to request feedback.
