    With Scroll Versions you can manage and author multiple versions of your documentation in a single space. Add or update pages and publish the appropriate version when the product is released.

    Manage different product variants in a single space in a simple and logical way. Space Admins can define variants on the space level, and Authors can define which content applies to which variant.

    Use duplicate page titles within a single space. Links are kept independent of page titles, allowing renaming of pages without breaking links.

    When will you support Confluence 6.0? As well as for Scroll Translations?

    Hi Ricardo-

    Thank you for your question. The fastest way to get an answer is always to email such inquiries to support@k15t.com. Since this is not actually a product review, feel free to delete it and move the conversation to email.

    To answer your question: Confluence 6.0 introduced changes that block some of the functionality of Scroll Versions and Translations. Our team has been working directly with the Confluence team to solve these issues, and lots of progress has been made. Right now our target for the release of Confluence 6.0 compatibility in Scroll Versions and Translations is late January or early February '17, though bear in mind we will move this if necessary to achieve a release that meets our quality standards.

    You can follow the issue here: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-3087

    We will be publishing a post this week at http://www.k15t.com/blog that explains a bit more about what is happening in this process. Stay tuned to that channel if you would like more information, or again feel free to email us at support@k15t.com.

    Thanks very much for your interest.

    This is a great tool to improve content management in Confluence. Easy to use and very helpful. Works great with Scroll Translations and Scroll Viewport.

    My company has moved from a DITA-based user guide for our application to authoring it in Confluence. When we first started in Confluence, it became painfully clear that it did not offer the versioning or publishing abilities we needed, which lead to tons of rework when trying to deploy content to a Preview and GA space. We decided to give Scroll Versions a try, and I guess I can't really state just how much it has changed things for us. Our writing team can now just pick the version in which they want content to appear and then start writing. It's a fundamental change for us, and allows us to maintain multiple versions with ease. We can now maintain a version of content for each sprints work, and publish it at the end of each sprint as we release that work. I look like a super star because our writing team can publish new content and fixes with the push a button. It's helped build trust in the team and the process. Though not a specific feature of Scroll Versions, we've used the recommended approach of building an Include Library to hold our reusable content. We've built our Include Library to several hundred pages and it's still growing. Our content is now very organized, and is being reused in multiple ways. We're even considering opening the library to other teams in the company to let use the chunks of content that's already been written for their resources. With the switch from DITA to Confluence + Scroll Versions, we've drastically increased the amount of content written each sprint, shortened review time, and removed the need for technical resources in reviewing and publishing content. This has let us focus on improving our content rather than fighting with the content creation and publishing tools.

    We are using scroll versions+translation for a about two years now. There are important issues that have not been fixed until now: - Include page doesn't work anymore when using scroll translations. So reusing content from other spaces is not possible. Not acceptable workaround: put your content in one space and use variants. - Excerpt include doesn't work anymore. E.g. describing an API and quoting the key functionality from the individual function description in a table (as an overview) can't be automated and has do be done manually. - copy/move pages to other spaces doesn't work anymore. Content has to me moved or copied by cut/copy/paste - The integrated workflow doesn't protect a page from being changed after the page is already in the state "complete". Changing content in this state doesn't switch the page state to "draft" again. So you might publish content that was not reviewed. Not acceptable workaround: buy another plugin for workflow management. - Comments get lost when creating and editing a new version of a space: create a version 1, create a page, comment to this page. Create version 2, edit the page --> The comments are not copied. You don't see the comments. The issue occurs for all kind of comments (inline and bottom). - Documentation still covers version 2.x 6 weeks after the 3.x major release.

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for giving such detailed feedback and for being a long-time customer.

    In 2015 we had about 19 releases of Scroll Versions related to new features, improvements and bug fixes. I am really sorry that the issues you mentioned were not part of those releases.

    We are aware that your example of content re-use is a key feature required for technical communication and it is currently a high priority in our roadmap.

    I am happy to get in touch with you personally if you like, to discuss/explain issues in more detail and see what we can do to help your situation.

    Cheers, Tobias (Product Manager)

    We found Scroll Versions to be very useful and is a key component in our documentation process. It is easy to use and comes with a lot of powerful features, like variants, permission controls, and more. Thank you for making such a great product!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on 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 server pricing tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
