GoEdit vs. Edit with Atlassian Companion App

GoEdit vs. Edit with Atlassian Companion App

Both tools in comparison

GoEdit offers attachment editing in small to enterprise environment since nearly 10 years, while the Edit with Atlassian Companion App is available for Confluence only starting 2018. We created a comprehensive comparison of both solutions to guide you through your decision process.

Terminal Server compatible

While the Edit with Atlassian Companion App does not work in terminal server environments, GoEdit also supports terminal server environments with multiple desktop sessions. In this way GoEdit can also be used in enterprise environments like Windows Remote Desktop Services and Citrix XenApp.

Attachment locking function

GoEdit has a free built-in attachment locking functionthat protects your documents from concurrent editing. During your editing process nobody else can modify the document accidentally. It's automatically checked out and checked in when you save. The Edit with App doesn't protect files from concurrent editing. You additionally have to buy the quite pricey third-party Add-On to avoid the risk of users running in file update conflicts.

Confluence 5.10+ Compatible

While the Edit with App only works with Confluence from version 6.11 and newer, GoEdit also works with productive environments starting from Confluence 5.10 up to the newest version. No need to update your system or adjust your company's workflow. Just stay with your productive environment.

User friendly handling

GoEdit is integrated in every important attachment function of Confluence like attachment links, attachment tables, attachment previews, space attachment list and more. It uses popover-links to offer easy access. Whereby the Edit with App has only a few integration points.
