Hey everyone 👋 We hope you’ve been enjoying using Confluence whiteboards so far. I'd like to take a moment to share some exciting upcoming changes that will soon be implemented in the product, from late May to early June. These changes aim to integrate whiteboards more natively within Confluence.
Whiteboards are moving
The existing whiteboard home screen in the Confluence side navigation bar will be removed. Instead, all whiteboards will appear as part of the content tree, which is currently known as the page tree. There is no need for any action on your part. All the whiteboards you previously created in a space will now exist under a Confluence page called “Migrated whiteboards” within that same space.
You will be able to organize whiteboards alongside pages in the content tree, which will enable you to move and delete them as well.
Create a whiteboard where you want
Just like pages, you can create a whiteboard directly from the content tree using the '+' icon or through the Create button in the top navigation.
Find whiteboards in more places
Alongside seeing your whiteboards in the content tree, you can now quickly find your whiteboards using search as well as in recent ones (located in the top navigation bar in Confluence). Currently, the search function only looks for matches in the title, space, and creator fields. It does not consider any content within the whiteboard. However, this feature will be added at a later time.
Pick templates within a whiteboard
We have recently released numerous new templates along with a new method to access them. A template selector is now accessible from within the whiteboard in the top right corner. This feature enables you to select a template during whiteboard creation or insert one into an existing whiteboard to expedite content creation.
Restrict your whiteboards
You will now be able to set individual whiteboard permissions. These whiteboard permissions will also be added to space permissions and coupled with pages. Whiteboards can also inherit permissions from their parent in the content tree.
What is coming soon?
Archive & copy whiteboards - this capability will be shipped in a few weeks as a follow-up!
