Shared Links Blueprint

The Shared Links blueprint helps you take content from the web and share it with your team.

You can use Shared Links to share and collaborate on web content, or to create a centralised repository of useful links.

The first time you use the Shared Links blueprint in a space, Confluence will create an index page and add a shortcut on your space sidebar (if you are using the default theme). The index lists all the shared links in that space.

To use the Shared Links blueprint:

  • Choose Create > Share a link.
  • Enter the URL of the web content you want to share.
  • Choose Create

You can also:

  • include topics to help categorise your links - these are added as labels to your page.
  • share the link immediately with another user or group - users will receive a notification. 
  • add a comment to start the discussion.

To make sharing links even faster, you can add a Share on Confluence button to your browser's toolbar. Click this button and the webpage you are currently viewing will be added as a shared link! 

To add the Share on Confluence button to your browser:

  • Choose Create > Share a link
  • Drag the Share on Confluence button to your browser toolbar.

Now when you want to share a link on Confluence, you can choose the Share on Confluence button in your browser, and follow the prompts.
