Future development of our Survey and Content Voting Add-Ons
From May 5th 2016, the Survey and Content Voting Add-Ons will be retired from our portfolio. They will be supported under the terms of the Adaptavist Support SLA until your current license expires.
The future of survey functionality
From time to time, we review our product portfolio. Its become clear that, as Forms for Confluence has expanded its scope and functionality, survey functionality logically belongs in that product. It offers Confluence admins the ability to create forms and collect responses. We will be adding this functionality to a future version of Forms for Confluence and will update Survey customers when this is available.
Content Voting customers should try Ratings for Confluence
We are retiring Content Voting because it is very similar to our Ratings for Confluence Add-On which is free-of-charge. Ratings for Confluence lets you collect and display ratings for the content in your Confluence wiki pages, news, blogs, user profiles etc. It lets users vote (and re-vote) and lets admins clear ratings. You can find out more about it and download it from here.
Maintaining and updating Add-Ons is resource intensive. This decision means that we can focus on developing new Add-Ons and extending the most popular functionality in our portfolio.

The support service will apply only to the versions released and available in the Atlassian Marketplace. Support beyond this scope may be available on a Professional Services basis.

Add-On retirement FAQs
Will the Add-Ons stop working when Adaptavist retires them from the Atlassian Marketplace?
No. You can continue to use the Survey and Content Voting for the license tier and Confluence version you are currently using. You will continue to be able to access all your content created with the Add-On. However, we will no longer be providing maintenance releases after the specified archiving date. As a result, if you upgrade your version of Confluence, there may be compatibility issues with the retired Add-On(s).
Will Adaptavist continue providing any level of support for the retired Add-Ons?
Adaptavist will continue to provide product support for Survey for Confluence and Content Voting in line with our Product Support SLA up until your existing license expires. The support service will apply only to the Add-On versions released and available in the Atlassian Marketplace. Support beyond this time may be available on a Professional Services basis.
My organisation depends on your add-ons that are on the published retired list. How can Adaptavist help us?
We realise that some organisations will be dependent on our Add-Ons for some of their functionality and have taken this into account with our decision to archive these Add-Ons. Whilst we are no longer able to provide product releases, we can provide bespoke development for these Add-Ons on a Professional Services basis, allowing you to obtain a version compatible with the relevant version of Confluence.
