Confluence: Everything you need to know about this collaborative project management tool

"As companies produce more and more content, it's essential that employees don't waste time finding important information," said Erika Trautman, Product Manager for Work Management at Atlassian.

Atlassian is an Australian software publisher offering a range of tools to boost collaborative working, particularly in project management.

Atlassian has developed a range of products to make project management increasingly easy.

Confluence, one of them, is designed to help teams and organisations collaborate, share information and document their work in a centralised platform.

Confluence can be thought of as a collaborative wiki, where you can host documents that are part of your project. Confluence is not just a standard wiki, it also helps teams work together and share information effectively.

Better collaboration between teams

Confluence enables teams to create, edit and collaborate on documents, presentations and other content in real time. Confluence enables instant collaboration, allowing multiple team members to work on a page simultaneously.

Confluence facilitates team collaboration with features such as comments, mentions and notifications. Team members can provide feedback, discuss ideas and keep abreast of relevant changes. Users can track changes so that everyone is informed and involved.

A platform tailored to project management

Teams can create structured spaces, pages and hierarchies to manage and share information effectively. With Confluence, work is divided into Spaces, in which it is possible to create an overview, which describes the part and documents its purpose and the team members assigned to it.

Spaces are the heart of Confluence, making it easier to organise documentation and collaboration. This is where ideas are brought together in a collaborative and iterative way. It is also possible to create structured content using templates. These templates provide a predefined structure for the most common types of pages, making it easier to create coherent, organised documentation.

Content management :

The software offers powerful content management capabilities, allowing users to control versions of their documents, track changes and revert to previous versions if necessary. It ensures that content remains organised, up-to-date and easily accessible.

Integration with other tools :

Confluence integrates with other popular Atlassian products, such as Jira (project management software) and Trello (task management tool), enabling seamless collaboration between different tools. While Trello allows you to manage the flow of these projects and Jira allows you to track issues related to these projects, Confluence allows you to document these projects.

Confluence should not be seen as a simple project management tool. Confluence can help create marketing plans, document brainstorming sessions, organise internal communications and provide software documentation.

Overall, Confluence is used to improve knowledge sharing, collaboration and productivity by providing a centralised platform for documentation and communication. It’s a popular tool for companies that want effective, collaborative documentation.
