As a user, I want to use clear action links (ex: "Archive") instead of page labels in the web UI and in the notification emails

It should shorten the learning curve, and eliminate errors.

    I totally agree, the archive option should be easily accessible in order to be used. Even with it visible it would be hard to train people on using it, without it will never work.

    Yep - this is what we need! Due to the size of our organisation and how people currently use Confluence, an archive button or action in the drop down would be great!

    A user suggested these actions:

    No Action = Extend the page for however long it has been configured

    Update = Directs the page author to the page edit mode

    Archive = Archives the space.

    We'd very much appreciate buttons for 'Archive now' or 'Don't Archive now' on the page itself; or archiving options in the ... menue.

    Yes, would be very helpful to have Archive option available (as we have options to copy, move or delete the page)

    Hi @Levente Szabo,

    are there any concrete plans on what is going to happen to the request to be able to trigger archiving via the UI? We'd still like to have buttons for 'Archive now' / 'Don't Archive now'?

    Hi Dorothee,

    This feature request will be considered in a future sprint for Archiving Plugin. I can't tell an official release date, but it's not forgotten.

    Please continue watching this space and the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. If there are any updates from the product team regarding this feature, it will be posted here!

    Thank you for your (and all the other voters') continued trust and patience! We appreciate all your input as we are working towards improving our products!

    We would like to be able to click on the status indicator (the orange question mark) and mark the page as updated or reviewed or something that takes the page off of the expired list if the content is still current. 

    Currently, we have many pages that do not need to be changed and are still current. In order to change the status from expired to current, we need to do the following to update the status which seems like a lot of work to change the status:

    1. Click on the expired content from the list

    2. Click edit

    3. Make a change to the content (adding a random space somewhere)

    4. Save the content

    Thanks, Brian. For the interaction you described we plan to introduce a dedicated action, called "Confirm".

    When do you expect to launch the "Confirm" button? 

    We want to ensure that our content is reviewed regularly and updated as needed. However, it is far too time-consuming to go through the process that Brian described above for each page that is still current. Consequently, our expired list isn't accurate, and it is easy to miss pages in the list that actually need to be updated.

    Thanks!
