The SharePoint Online Connector brings the power of SharePoint document management to Confluence and our team is steadily working on multiple enhancements to improve the product and broaden its use. Today we are proud to announce the next wave of incremental improvements, and we will give you sneak peek into what is just around the corner.
New Ways to Embed and Interact with Documents in Confluence
With SharePoint Online Connector for Confluence 1.4, we’ve given you more control over how documents are embedded. Now you can easily embed documents in a responsive view for a full-width preview.
Another improvement lets your users interact with documents in Lists that are embedded within a Confluence page. Users now have the power to download the file. open it in the appropriate web application, or even delete it–all from within Confluence. All this saves valuable time, since users no longer need to navigate back and forth between Confluence and SharePoint.
What’s Next for SharePoint Online Connector for Confluence?
Over the past year we’ve seen massive growth in adoption of SharePoint Online Connector for Confluence. This further strengthens our commitment to taking this app to the next level. Now what does this mean?
SharePoint 2019 and Confluence
We are currently evaluating compatibility with SharePoint 2019 and will be able to provide an update on this soon.
Selecting a View from a SharePoint List
One of the most highly requested features are the custom views that are available in SharePoint. Soon you will be able to pick one of the existing Views to display in the Confluence Macro. See below for a preview of this functionality.
Selecting Subfolders of Document Libraries from SharePoint
We are also working on another popular feature request: The ability to select a specific folder as the starting point for the SharePoint List Macro in Confluence. Right now, the root folder is automatically selected, and there isn’t an option to change that default. Soon you will be able to start in whatever level of the folder structure you want.
Uploading Files to a SharePoint Document Library right in Confluence
Our SharePoint List Macro shows you what’s inside of the corresponding Document Library in SharePoint. Soon, you will be able to upload new files directly to SharePoint without leaving Confluence via drag and drop or via an upload button where you can select a file from your explorer.
