Issues for Attention Insight

Atlassian's Jira now has an improved 'Issues for attention' feature that makes it easier to decide what to work on next. It includes 'stuck issues' along with existing 'blocked' and 'flagged' issues, all under a new 'All' tab.

'Stuck issues' help identify work that's been in one state for too long. 'Blocked issues' highlight work impeded by other issues, and 'flagged issues' show problems needing immediate attention.

Changes to Confluence Publishing

Atlassian is improving the Confluence publishing experience, adding a Publish Dialog for new drafts and updated pages. This feature helps control who can access and view the content before publishing.

Publish Dialog simplifies publishing and permissions management, making content publishing and creation much more straightforward.

Share Confluence Pages to Slack

Atlassian's Confluence now features an improved Share function, introducing the ability to share pages directly to Slack. This eliminates the need for switching contexts and extra clicks.
