The Decisions blueprint helps you make decisions and record the outcomes with your team.
The first time you use the Decisions blueprint in a space, Confluence will create an index page and add a shortcut on your space sidebar (if you're using the default theme). The index acts as your Decision Register and lists all the decisions in that space.
To create a decision page:
- Choose Create from template in the Confluence header
- Select Decision and hit Next
- Enter information about the decision and relevant stakeholders (the blueprint will prompt you) and hit Create
Once you save your first decision page, Confluence will create a decision register page for the space you're in, and add a shortcut to it in the space's sidebar.

The Decisions blueprint uses these Confluence features:
- Page Properties and Page Properties Report macro - content that you enter within the page properties macro can appear on the index page.
- Mentions - add a user as a stakeholder, owner or @mention them on the page and they will be notified in their workbox.
Customizing this blueprint
You can customize the templates that are used by the Decisions blueprint - see Customizing the blueprint templates. For example, you might choose to edit the decisions index page in a space to change the columns displayed by the Page Properties Report macro.
You can also edit the page template to add headings or instructional text to the background section, or even add rows to the Page Properties macro. For example, a row for the date the decision was made.
See Instructional text to find out more about using instructional text in templates.
