Confluence Questions 2.0.8
In this release we've tackled our highest voted feature request - giving you more control over who can see your questions by adding questions to spaces.
Sometimes a question only relates to one team or project or it might contain private information that shouldn't be visible to everyone. Adding questions to spaces keeps your questions secure, relevant, and organized.
- New Questions link in space sidebars - use this to ask a question in a space, or see what others have asked.
- New Ask in a space option when you edit an existing question - use this to move questions to a space.
- View statistics for all questions or by space.
- Get notifications about new questions for spaces you're watching.
- Use your existing space permissions - only people who can view the space can search for and see questions that were asked there.
Good to know:
- Asking a question using the Create dialog or Questions link on the sidebar will ask in a space.
- When you search for a question we'll return all matching questions, including ones asked in spaces that you have permissions to see.
- Only the question itself is private. Topics are still visible to everyone who can use Confluence Questions.
- Questions will not appear on the sidebar in the documentation theme (find out why) and may not be available in third party or custom themes.
- The ability to ask, answer or comment on a question in a space is granted by the View space permission. People do not need to have Add page permission to ask or answer a question.
- If your question isn't private, and you want to maximize your chance of an answer, use Questions in the header to ask anyone in your Confluence site.
