      Description

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