Easy Toolbox for Confluence by Easy Apps

Keep Confluence spaces productive (Easy Apps)

Confluence spaces are open. This collaboration brings productively benefits. Yet open spaces have administrators for a reason, sometimes they need some TLC (tender loving care).

A client of ours uses Confluence to write video games scripts. They use Easy Toolbox for Confluence, a suite of bulk content editing features, to ensure text updates are done across a space. This limits confusion, a key to getting the script approved faster.

Here is how they use the different features of Easy Toolbox for Confluence:

Find and Replace

The name of a central character changes. It has been written hundreds of times on dozens of pages. The space administrator uses find and replace to update the name.

Labels

The label ‘intro’ was created. But ‘introduction' already existed. Users are now using both. The space administrator needs to cut all the uses of ‘intro’. To do so they use the label editor to merge all ‘intro’ labels to the label 'introduction'. After the label 'intro’ no longer shows as an option when adding labels.

Title prefix/suffix

Chapter 1 has now been finalized, yet there is confusion as to which pages are for chapter 1 and which are for future chapters. The space admin adds a prefix ‘Chapter 1:’ to all the related pages.

Link editor

When a user pastes in a link, Confluence turns it into a smart link. Game developers want to see the full URL for all links. The space administrator can bulk turn display inline links to display URL to show the full URL.
