Create page templates, blueprints, and reports

When you add a new page, you don't have to start from scratch. Instead, you can base your new page on a template – a Confluence page with predefined content. Confluence Cloud comes with more than 70 templates to help you with everything from taking meeting notes to defining your business strategy. If that’s not enough, you’ll find more templates on the Atlassian Marketplace, and you can even create your own.

This section contains information on how to use page templates, as well as how space administrators can manage them for an individual space. For information on how to manage templates for your whole site, see Administering site templates.

What’s the difference between a template and a blueprint?

Blueprints are templates created by Atlassian or by third-party developers. From an end-user perspective, blueprints and templates are the same, but there are some important differences for administrators.

Site administrators can:

  • Install global blueprints from the Atlassian Marketplace

  • Enable and disable global blueprints

  • Edit existing global blueprints

  • Promote and unpromote global blueprints

Space administrators can:

  • Enable and disable blueprints for the space they manage

  • Edit blueprints to customize them for their space

  • Promote and unpromote blueprints within their space

Neither site administrators nor space administrators can create blueprints. However, they can create custom templates.
