    Add 'approver' fields to your Confluence documents in the cloud - now with email functionality

    New: Can notify approvers by email!

    Approvals on your Confluence pages

    Generated comments record approvals

    Email functionality is now included, so that you never miss an approval. Users can opt-out individually.

    The macro can be placed anywhere on the page by using the 'Insert' menu. They can be set to 'expire' when the page is edited, if this is required by your company!

    When all 'approvers' have confirmed, the section displays a message. Comments are generated every time someone approves/unapproves to display the status.

    More details

    Many types of document require approval before they can be published or formally issued. Approval Macro gives you a quick but rigorous way of gathering the approvals required for your document issuance process.

    • Simple to use, just add from the 'Insert' menu.
    • Add one or many 'approvers' to review a document.
    • Auto-generate comments that notify watchers of the page when it is approved/unapproved.
    • All users can see whether a document is approved or not.

    UPDATE: Thanks for your reply, Himal! I did not notice the hover timestamp feature - I think it's awesome. I'll reach out regarding the rest. Thanks! Really like this app and want to use it, but I can only give 2 stars because of so much missing functionality. As part of this macro, I would want: 1) a timestamp in the table 2) ability to indicate in the table exactly what it is that's being approved. 3) ability to make approvers conditional (if Abe approved, then Ben no longer needs to approve). 4) more control and transparency into the email reminders or prompts that approvers are receiving. We don't want to spam our stakeholders and not even realize we're doing it. My org makes detailed product requirements documents which may require approval of several different concepts, lines of copy, designs, etc. Including a column for WHAT was approved (rather than the page in its entirety) would be extremely helpful!

    Hi Misty,

    Thanks for your review, I'm glad you like the app. I would like to provide some suggestions that could perhaps be of help relating to your review:

    • The timestamp of when the approver approved can be checked by hovering over the status lozenge.
    • This relates to point number 2 and the last paragraph that you wrote, the title of the macro can be used to describe what the item to approve is. Multiple macros can be added on the same page with different titles to specify different items to be approved.
    • Relating to point number 3, would you be looking for, let's say, if one person approves then the rest does not need to? Or would you like more customisation that allows you to customise the condition for each specific person?
    • Relating to point number 4, we completely agree that the email feature needs to have more control, customisation and transparency.

    We are planning a new release and definitely would like to talk further about implementing these features as part of that. Please feel free to contact me on himal.gurung@automation-consultants.com to continue the discussion.

    Great app !, it would be helpful as well if : - the page's current version number is printed at the comment after all the approvers approve the page - to be able to see a list with all the approved page versions Nice work,

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does cloud app pricing work?

    Cloud pricing is subscription based. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, you are automatically billed for host products and apps based on the number of users in your instance.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my cloud pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. Confluence Cloud apps are priced based on the number of Confluence users on your instance. For example, if you have Confluence Cloud (25 users), you pay the 25-user price for apps.

    The pricing structure for cloud products and apps is as follows:

    • Monthly subscriptions with up to 10 host product users are billed at a flat rate price.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 10 users are billed per user, starting at the first user.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 100 users are billed per user. The table above provides example pricing at various user levels.
    • If per-user pricing is not yet available for this app, please contact the vendor for further information.

    If you've opted for annual billing for your host product, apps are also billed annually at a discount (12 months for the price of 10).

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Academic, community and open source licenses are not available for cloud apps.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud apps, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud apps are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the app.
