What's the Right App for Me – Scroll Documents or Scroll Versions?

This page aims to answer the question of whether your existing Scroll Versions workflow on Confluence Server or Data Center can be migrated to Confluence Cloud, as some of the features have yet to be implemented in Scroll Documents and some already implemented ones work differently.

Duplicate Page Titles

Manage duplicate page titles within the authoring space.

The limitation of unique page titles cannot be lifted, it can only be worked around.



With Scroll Versions, this is achieved with the help of the Scroll Page Title which is displayed in page view instead of the actual Confluence page title, which still needs to be unique. The Scroll Page title is used during publishing in Scroll Viewport and Scroll Exporters.

In Scroll Documents, version/language prefixes are used to prevent duplicate page titles. The prefixes are displayed in page view, but omitted when publishing in Scroll Viewport or Scroll Exporters.

Page Keys & Context Sensitive HelpAssign page keys to specific pages that can be used to link to that page.(tick)


(release pending)

Page keys (content keys) are currently being implemented in Scroll Documents and Scroll Viewport for Cloud.
