  • Great app, very easy to use. The social/commentary features work well to encourage collaborate working on document pages and also motivates people in the team to keep documents up to date.

    Pros : Feature rich, easy to use, cloud environment is fast and pages load very quickly.

    Cons : While the base service is feature rich. If you do need extra plug-ins, the pricing for market place plug-ins can get a bit out of control.

  • Confluence Use Cases and Deployment ScopeConfluence is used within our organization as a project management collaboration tool and as a method for making important documentation available to business stakeholders. As we continue establishing our agile project management methodology, Confluence (in concert with Atlassian JIRA), is quickly becoming our trusted ally. Our technical and business users both rely on it for sharing information.

    Pros : Compared to other tools of its type, Confluence seems to have a very low barrier to entry for all types of users. Everyone from low level users to the most technical developers seem to learn the software quickly and effectively.Despite its out of the box simplicity, Confluence is quite extensible. Between Custom Macros, External Gadgets, and 3rd Party Add-ons, you can extend Confluence to meet most of your business needs, whatever they may be.Confluence's integration with Atlassian JIRA means th

    Cons : One particular problem we've experienced is the lack of an ability to collaborate on Excel documents. To do this, you must download an Excel attachment, make your changes, and then re-upload it creating a new version. Due to the overhead involved in this, we often find ourselves using SharePoint for this task. It's certainly not a deal-breaker, but it would be nice if there was an add-on which allowed in-app editing of Excel worksheets.I've observed that users who mainly work on a stack of Micro

    Confluence, while having a small learning curve in terms of creating/editing pages, performs and feels almost like you're using Microsoft Office applications inside of the familiar Wiki style page. Using familiar layouts and button configurations for editing text, creating tables, inserting objects, etc. You can easily make pages for yourself, to share in a group or to make available to public aka anonymous users. Anyone within the group or following the page will receive updates when pages are edited clearly showing what was actually added, removed, or changed. The ability to mark down who made the last changes to the article and on what date is great for backtracking changes if needed, as well as adding a reason for a change if needed.

    The system overall has high functionality and good performance, and has thus far been perfect in terms of reliability and uptime. While everything has a familiar feel as stated above, the user interface is pretty plain. This doesn't merit any mark down in my appreciation level, as looks aren't really a super important thing. The UI is still easy to use, a revamp of the visuals would just be nice.

    Pros :

    • High performance
    • Easy to use
    • Familiar Feel
    • High customization options for the pages
    • High Reliability
    • Ability to provide and follow audit trail of changes
    • Updates users in real time to page updates

    Cons :

    • Plain interface ( not exactly a con )
    • Small learning curve for getting used to some of the tools
    • Email updates can be a bit excessive if a lot of updates are done to a page, or if a lot of pages are updated in a short amount of time you will get an email every time someone changes a page and hits save since emails are sent out real time and not queued for any amount of time to allow for rapid changes and provide a summarized changelog.andnbsp;

    Confluence overall is pretty good. Recently our company has pushed to start using it more over Google Docs, and it has its pros and cons. Overall, it's great for being able to stay in the loop with what others are working on, especially if you don't work close with that person; in a literal and physical sense. The majority of my coworkers are in a different country, and I don't speak to them regularly. All I have I have to do to help stay in the loop is to make sure I follow that teams Confluence page. Of course, the company has to invest in pushing the company to make sure Confluence is used and updated regularly. It may not replace Google docs on the collaborate front, but it's a very great tool for being able to track loads of internal communication.

    Pros :

    I mostly use Confluence for three things.

    • Bug tracking. Our team has created a few pages where we track bugs for different products, and we're able to easily all see open bugs at any time... along with anyone else in the company. Since it integrates with JIRA, we can see the live status of a ticket as well. This is super killer!
    • Keeping up to date with other parts of the business. I follow almost every team in the company and when they update, delete or add a new page, I get the email, and I'm able to get involved in areas that concern my team or myself. It's super easy to do and has really brought me closer to the company.
    • The same as 2, but for my own team. We are very able to keep track of all our reporting and other people in the business can see what we're up to.

    Cons :

    • The biggest con for me is how it's just not real-time collaborative. I know that may not be their target, but it's one thing that might keep people from fully switching away from Google Drive products.

    I used Confluence for about a year and a half, as we needed a tool to manage several projects efficiently. My colleagues were in 3 different countries, and we wanted to avoid having to send back and forth emails. Confluence is a great tool for this as anyone invited can write on a project page, and chose to notify others or not. It has definitely improved the workstream for us, once everyone got used to it, and was connected to Jira, the platform we used for IT issues and projects.

    Pros :

    It avoids multiple and unnecessary emails and keeps all important information at the same place and organized per project or topic. You can choose to be notified or check the space whenever you decide. It is very intuitive and easy to use, there is no training required to use the basic functions, but you do need a few days to get used to it. It is easy to create space with text, graphs, drawings or tables, attach files, and tag/invite colleagues. We had it connected with Jira, the platform we used for IT issues and projects, which was very handy.

    Cons :

    It can get bit messy if you have too many spaces. Even if they are organized, it is not always easy to search for a space with the search tool if you do not know exactly where it and you end up spending time locating what you are looking for. If you forget to tag your colleagues or if you untick "notify users", they will not be informed of the updates. The design functions are very limited in terms of colors, fonts, outline, etc. Notifications can get a bit overwhelming if somebody forgets to untick "notify users" for each modification and your e-mail inbox will be flooded, which is what you want to avoid using Confluence.
