We at K15t Software were aware that there were some papercuts in our own software, so we concentrated on eliminating as many of them as possible in today's release of Scroll Versions 2.2.

Confluence Content Management Pro Tip: Managing and Removing Page Versions with Scroll Versions

Managing content in Confluence with the Scroll Versions add-on allows authors to schedule new pages, modifications or removals for a specific version.

However, it is not supported by Confluence. But, in Scroll Versions' we have added the permalink feature that allows multiple wiki pages with the same title in the same Confluence space. This article describes how to use duplicated page titles without using the other Scroll Versions functionality.

Managing your Authoring Process How To

Wikis are a great tool for technical documentation. Structuring and authoring the content in a collaborative way is as easy as it can be.

Labels are a great mechanism to retain control over all your pages.
