Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

Confluence

Confluence is great at democratizing content creation, managing short projects or activities, and distributing content to a large audience. It falls down due to the lack of a content creation work flow, content findability, and viewing/editing Word/Excel documents within the platform.

Pros

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.
Pamela Harris profile photo
  • Confluence provides the ability to any employee to create content as they see fit, democratizing the content creation process
  • The parent and child relationships between pages makes organizing your content much easier.
  • If you're also using Jira as your task management software, the native integration allows you to work in both systems and share content and data between the two, seamlessly.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • The tables feature is horrible. Really hard to edit, and make look nice. I end of just posting screen shots of excel.
  • It can be confusing and overwhelming for new users. I would not say it is intuitive.

It's an extremely easy to use, yet powerful tool. People love it, and the result is good documentation and people are contributing, documenting and sharing their ideas. The collaborating features, such as likes and notifications help us keep up to date with latest changes, and it is amazing to see the quick adoption of the tool.

It's overall pretty straightforward and intuitive. You get a simple editing window that presents a live view of your formatted document, plus a toolbar for formatting options. If you're familiar with any word processing program (Google Docs, Word, etc) you should be able to master Confluence without much (if any) difficulty.

Pages load quickly. If something closes abruptly (such as the browser), it lets us know when work needs to be reviewed/saved/deleted to avoid any unintentional overrides.

I have not had a lot of support experiences with Atlassian, but of the few I have, I wasn't very satisfied with the results. I found that multiple people would respond to the issue at various stages, requiring re-communication (even though the support system stores everything and shows it to both them and you). Often responses came at odd hours, resulting in 24+ hour turnaround on basic responses, even if you respond right away. Support often asks you to do things which require downtime, and don't seem sympathetic if your organization requires that downtime to be done off-hours. This makes it difficult to resolve issues in a timely manner, if at all.I must note that I have not opened a support incident with them in close to 2 years, and it's my understanding from colleagues that there has been much improvement. My comments and ratings reflect my older experiences.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Confluence was trying to be too much for our needs; we needed a scrum process management tool and Microsoft Visual Studio Team System turned out to have the exact set of features we needed.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
Pamela Harris profile photo
  • An intranet is essential for any modern company. This product met our needs and had lots of opportunity for customization, etc., but out of the box is rather basic.
