Smart Attachments for Confluence

Sometimes sharing files in Confluence with your team can be challenging. You need to create a document, upload the required files, and then share the page you created with your colleagues. To improve your experience with getting quick access to project documents and files, we designed the Smart Attachments for Confluence app.

This useful add-on helps you keep all sorts of documents and media assets that relate to your current project activities in a shareable space storage.

The Smart Attachments app allows you to upload multiple files by dropping them into the space storage on the fly. You can also easily rename and delete your files.

Your team members can keep track of specific document revisions choosing the required version.

This handy app allows you to embed the documents from the file storage of the space into your Confluence pages.

Smart Attachments for Confluence takes team collaboration to the next level helping you keep project files and documents organized to your needs.

Team Admin for Confluence

Team Admin for Confluence is a lifesaver for space administrators. This app allows you to manage your space groups on the fly. All you need to do is to open the space permissions and create a new space group.

This way you can make your space read-only for your new colleagues without changing the global permissions with no need to ask the Confluence administrator to create new groups and manage space permissions.

You can quickly add members to the existing group and remove them clicking a single button.

This app easily integrates with the Confluence space permissions page. It allows you to configure space groups all in one place.

Now you can quickly access any space of your Confluence site filtering the list of spaces by:

  • Category;
  • Type;
  • Status;
  • Name.

The Advanced spaces list app provides you with a complete set of statistical information about Confluence spaces in a breeze.

Blueprint Creator

Blueprint Creator (Advanced Templates) allows you to create templates and blueprints for your pages and blog posts in Confluence. If your authors need to add a number of pages with the same structure, this app will save them time and effort. You can create the template that will help you provide the necessary information when you add various instructions, meeting notes, reports, documentation sites, and more.

Confluence users don’t need programming skills to create blueprints, they can just use the provided form fields and placeholders.

When they create a new page or blog post, they just fill in the fields with the necessary information.

This app helps you manage your projects in a more organized way.
