Page status, a new way to stay informed about Confluence

Atlassian announces a new feature, the "page status" for Confluence. The page status is a new way to inform about the status of a page in Confluence. It can be used independently of the lifecycle of the page.

Among other things, you can now create and reuse personal workflows. In addition, users can now see a list of up to three recently used page statuses:

  • CUSTOM: Very messy, Open to feedback, Finalized
  • SUGGESTED: Rough draft, In Progress, Ready for review
Seitenstatus als Teil von Atlassians größten Release für Confluence
Setzen des Seitenstatus als Teil von größten Atlassian Release für Confluence
Geänderter Seitenstatus als Teil von größten Release von Atlassian Confluence

The page status is intended to serve as an eye-catcher and show employees and content users when and how they should interact with a page. The function is currently being rolled out. The page status function will only be available for the cloud and will soon also be available for mobile.

> Further information on the page status can be found here.

Related pages: Find content easily

"Related pages" is an intelligent function that shows relevant Confluence pages.

Related pages are automatically generated suggestions based on pages that have previously been viewed or organized together. In this way, you can now quickly get an overview of shared work and quickly find relevant articles in a knowledge base, even if the pages are not linked or organized.

This function is activated by default. However, there are a few things to note:

  • Administrators can deactivate this function at section level under Section settings > Related pages
  • Permissions are respected so that only pages that users have access to are displayed
  • If related pages are enabled for a space, contributors can also show or hide the pages on a case-by-case basis

This function is currently only available for pages, not for blogs. It is currently not available in the Jira Service Management customer portals. Related pages will soon be available in the Confluence Cloud instance.
