It has a comment option on the page, where you can tag other teammates tagging them. it sends the mail notification. Comment at the page end is pretty good for referring to other stakeholders and future references of the topic on the page. Creating the highlights of the discussions, and meeting held points with highlighted tagging. Easy shortcuts such as to add a date just type "//". The interface is cool and has easy shortcuts for quick page making.

It is an ideal program for the portfolio of already consolidated clients, for large financial companies with a high professional profile. In the cases that I do not recommend it, it is for small and medium-sized financial companies, with a portfolio of clients in training, since the cost-benefit ratio is not attractive.

Similar to other Atlassian products, users have complained that aspects of Confluence are difficult to learn right away[.] An issue that users can face when using Confluence is attempting to edit a document while someone else is editing. Although users can access the document and save it, they are unable to see the changes happening in [real-time] that other users are implementing until they refresh their page. Some users have also noted that this can result in loss of edits. Another drawback of using Confluence is its specific organizational structure. All information is stored within one page or project, although the page is able to be broken up into sections, some users do not prefer this style. Users can use the ‘page tree’ on each page to organize the different elements of each project.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment.
is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far
Confluence maintains its performance.

Until now, technical support has not been required to a large extent, but for this question three variables must be taken into account; The level of complexity of the implementation of the tool, the courses, tutorials, training and learning curve of the users, and finally the technical support as such. This tool has implementation attributes and ease of use, reducing the incidence of technical support.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the initial implementation (and the subsequent upgrades and implementations made over the years).
This product has never rose to the level of being an major issue at an executive level. It has quietly and valiantly done it's job for our company!

We used to use
to store all of our documentation, but it is disconnected from our every day working environment and it was easy to lose documents and become disorganized within the broad drive environment. [
] Confluence has kept us more organized and its tight coupling with
has made documents more accessible and more likely to be kept up to date.

Basically, my main experience is focused on Dynamics, I have worked with similar tools developed in a particular way by the firms for which I have worked. They are monitoring tools developed by the system and planning area. For the internal use of the company. Obviously, this is a leading international program.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.
Read full review Return on Investment We've gone from folders and folders of Word documents and PDFs into a single system with a search feature to bring all of our data together and trackable While onboarding took a bit longer for the company (to switch from a Word document centric mindset - to a web-based one), overall the company has embraced the features and power of Confluence within the working stack However, as costs continue to climb for the Atlassian product, we are forced to continue our evaluation of the product - with replacing it a remote possibility if it begins to outprice its usefulness to us. Read full review Without speaking directly of figures, on the positive side of the implementation of the program is tied to the time of learning the tool. In practice, it is much easier to learn by professionals, making the implementation time short, as well as, minimizes the margin of error in the initial handling of the program. As it is a tool for easy learning and with a reduction in the margin of error due to the learning curve, it allows working only with the technical support offered by the provider, without having the need to create an internal department of attention to the user, which lowers costs.
