Drag and Drop Attachments

The Drag and Drop feature in Confluence allows you to drag and drop files (images, documents, etc.) onto your browser/wiki page to attach them. You may also drag multiple files onto a page to attach them.

Full documentation on using Drag and Drop within Confluence - make sure to read the Requirements for Confluence's Drag and Drop Feature on this page!  

Note: Confluence limits file sizes to a maximum of 15MB. We recommend using Box to store your files. Create links on your Confluence pages to your files stored on Box.
