Atlassian vendors are doing their best to enhance our Confluence experience with new apps. We are checking what’s new on the Atlassian Marketplace every three months. This time we prepared a batch of fresh Confluence solutions that will help your team work better together.

Let’s take a closer look at each of them.
Metadata for Confluence Cloud is a nifty add-on for Atlassian users who miss some Server features in Confluence Cloud. This app allows you to organize and manage your content with the help of custom fields and macros. If you have a lot of Confluence pages, you can easily classify them and create page reports. You just need to configure metadata fields to keep track of your pages.
Your colleagues will use the predefined page structure.
You can also use built-in macros if you want to display the metadata on your page, or you need to aggregate data from different pages. You can either show the metadata on a page or view a summary of multiple pages.
This solution will help your team not to get lost among thousands of Confluence pages.
Pricing: The Metadata for Confluence Cloud app pricing for Confluence Cloud starts at $10/mo for 20 users and ends at $1,535/mo for 5,000 users.
It can be challenging to find some information in Confluence. And it seems almost impossible to find an image. Image search for Confluence comes to the rescue. The best thing is that you can search for both images and thumbnails.
This app adds the Image tab to the search, and you just need to start typing the name of the file you are searching for. Moreover, you will have a preview of all images that match your search query, and you can filter the results by space, creator, and date.
This way, you can find the required Confluence page because search results are linked to the pages your images are attached to.
Use this app to make your Confluence search smarter.
Pricing: The pricing for Image search for Confluence Server starts from $75 for 25 users and ends at $4,200 for the unlimited number of users.
Confluence administrators can delegate group management to the users they choose with the help of the Group Ambassadors for Confluence app. This way, the nominated group ambassadors can manage Confluence groups without administrative privileges.
Group ambassadors become group managers and can browse their current groups as members, rapidly add and remove users. However, administrators can restrict browsing in some groups ambassadors can see. These privileges can be granted and revoked easily. Administrators can check the list of current ambassadors in a blink of an eye.
This app is also available for Jira. Administrators can focus on their tasks, delegating group management to their colleagues.
Pricing: The pricing for Group Ambassadors for Confluence Server starts from $140 for 25 users and ends at $8,000 for the unlimited number of users. The pricing for this app for Data Center starts from $1,250/year for 500 users.
