Automatically suggest new page titles if a page with the title already exists


    • Our product teams collect and evaluate feedback from a number of different sources. To learn more about how we use customer feedback in the planning process, check out our new feature policy.

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Cloud. Using Confluence Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Problem: When you create a page with a title that's the same of another page in the space, you get this error:

      The user now has to switch back to the editor context and think of a new name.

      To improve this experience a bit, we should automatically suggest a new page title based on the parent page. We just pre-fix the parent page and suggest that to the user:

      (Old screenshot, UI needs to be updated, but you get the picture).

      We could get smarter with the logic:

      • Suggest the parent page pre-fixed
      • Fit there is no parent page, or the parent page suggested name above already exists, it pre-fixes it with a space key
      • If that fails it could pre-fix a date/timestamp?
      • etc...

      Whoever picks this up let me know.
