Help improve Team and other events

Take part in a quick survey to help shape the future of Atlassian events. The questions range from the type of content you want to see at Team '22, the format, duration of sessions, as well as questions about if you'd attend in person or prefer digital format. The deadline for submissions is 24th August 2021.

New in Confluence: Emojis in page titles & page header images

With the latest Confluence release, you'll be able to add emojis and header images to the confluence pages and blogs. You can find an emoji button above your page title where you can select any emoji from the library and it will be added to your page title.

If you would like to add a page header you get an option to select an image from the Unsplash library or you can upload your own. The header image then appears above the title making your page look much nicer (and cooler).

These changes are being rolled out gradually so if you can't see them yet in your confluence don't worry - they'll be there soon.

Check out the latest Marketplace app listing updates

The Atlassian marketplace app listing was a redesign, performance improved and the pages are now also mobile-friendly.  There is also a new "Cloud migration" tab for Server apps where you can find useful links like Feature parity comparison or cloud migration pathway making it easier for you to plan your migration to Cloud.

And the last improvement that will be rolled out during September is the Cloud app pricing calculator.  With this feature, you'll be able to calculate the exact cost of the app directly on the app listing.

Incident Responders and Linked Alerts in Jira Service Management

Now you'll be able to assign an OpsGenie alert to the person or team on support directly from the Jira Service Management ticket. For example, we at Jexo use OpsGenie, which is our hub for alerts and incidents for all our apps. We have all our engineering teams registered for weekly on-call support in case things something goes wrong in production. Our customers report issues, and the support engineer on-call needs to look at the issue. An Opsgenie alert needs to be triggered to notify them to look at the customer issue. This new feature will make the whole process seamless.
