Recently released Confluence Cloud integration for Microsoft Teams has just been enhanced. With this new update it is now possible to:

  • Pin a Confluence page as a tab in Teams channel.
  • Create a Confluence child page or blog post from the pinned tab in Teams channel.

In our previous iteration we provided experience with Messaging Extension that brought search and reference to Confluence Cloud pages in the form of interactive cards.

 

Open a Confluence page in a Teams tab

You may now add a tab to your team channel with the Confluence page. Whether it is your project overview page, some specific product documentation, blog post or any other document that you’d like to quickly refer to – you can now use tab capability of the Confluence app and add the page as Microsoft Teams tab.

Create Confluence Child page from Microsoft Teams

Whether the child page includes meeting notes or a quick write-up, this new enhancement allows you to save the child page within project documentation – directly from the Teams Confluence tab itself.

Microsoft Teams now also provides support for creating Confluence blog posts from within the Confluence tab.

 

How to get started

Install the Confluence Cloud app from Microsoft Teams app store. If you already have the Confluence Cloud app installed, you would need to consent to app update. Go to any team where app is installed, go to Apps section and click on Confluence Cloud to give permission to update the app to enable this new functionality.
