Create a page from a template

When you create a new page, you have the option of pre-formatting your content with a page template. (Note that this feature isn’t currently available on Confluence mobile.)

To start, open a blank page by selecting the Create button in the top navigation (or by using the + button next to Pages in the sidebar). The template browser will open on the right.

You can browse through all templates in a space, filter templates by category, or search for a specific template by name or keyword. To preview a template without selecting it, hover over the template card.

The Confluence Cloud editor with the template browser up and showing a preview of the "Annual plan one-pager" template.

Once you've found the right template, select the card to apply it to your page.

Add your favorite templates to the Starred category for easy access. Just hover over the template card and select the empty star icon.

The template browser will disappear as soon as you start typing. If you need to change templates, you can open the browser again: Select Templates & import doc from the more actions menu () in the upper right.

Remember that since templates are intended to get you started, they’re only available for unpublished drafts. You won’t see it in the menu if you’re editing a page that has been published before.

Also keep in mind that when you change templates, you create a new page; any content you entered on the current page won’t carry over to the new template. You'll be prompted with an option to discard the current draft when the new page is created. If you don’t discard it, it will be saved as a separate unpublished draft under Pages in the sidebar.
