Why Do I Need a Prefix When Creating, Copying, or Saving a Version of a Document?

In Confluence, it’s not possible to have multiple pages with the same title in the same space. This can cause conflicts when creating, copying, or versioning a document.

We recommend you add a prefix in the following cases:

  • Creating a document from a new page tree

  • Saving a version of a document

The prefix is added to the titles of all the pages that are created by Scroll Documents, and will be visible in the space sidebar.

To better understand why a prefix alleviates this issue, learn more about how new pages are created and added to your page tree in the background while using Scroll Documents.

Create New Page Tree or Create from Template

When you create a new page tree or create from a template, new pages are created in the page tree.

Copying a Document

When you create a copy of a document, in the background, Scroll Documents creates a replica of all the pages in the document, including their hierarchy.

Saving a Version

When you save a version of a document, in the background, Scroll Documents creates a replica of all the pages in the document, including their hierarchy, and place the copied page tree in the following location: Versions of [Name of your document].
