Figma

If you want to create a UI design quickly and don't have much knowledge specifically for using any tool for UI Design, Figma is best-suited. Its basic version is free, so you can first learn it like a pro, and then if you like you can purchase it. It's available for all the platforms as it has a web version that can be directly accessed by your browser. Also, it has preview apps for android and ios. Figma has tutorials on their website but they are somewhat not for basic users, so I'll recommend Figma to create some.

Pros

Confluence

  • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
  • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
  • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
  • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability

Figma

  • Collaboration! we stopped sharing screen in zoom, now we all jump into Figma and magically everything connects and flow way better.
  • Memory management! Figma manage all the assets so well, that we sometimes have all project assets in one single file with multiple pages and it loads instantly. Keeping everything in one place, easy to access and to developers or designers complain about they stations running out of ram!
  • Sharing!, getting a link to an exact pixel is magical, discussion can now have way more context than what it had before.
  • Auto-layouts! Although is not new in the ecosystem, Figma does a pretty awesome job with molecules and particles, so you can create better design systems that can stretch to any screen, making it a design once for all devices!

Cons

Confluence

  • Some of the components can be a little clunky to use and configure on pages.
  • I've run into a few issues where edited pages refuse to publish and work is either lost or time wasted copying and pasting to a new document that will publish.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Figma

  • Some of the auto-layout features seem to have bugs every so often.
  • The account management between different Figma spaces doesn't seem super intuitive.
  • When navigating to the same work space on different devices, the file name view is not remembered (as that may be a device-specific preference that is not tied to an account preference).

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.

Usability

Confluence

Confluence 8.3
Based on 12 answers
Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian 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.

Our designers and developers love this tool because it eliminates the need to package designs into a separate folder. We used to upload all PSDs or In Design files in a dropbox folder, and this tool changes that. However, as a project manager, I find it a little clunky. Most of the time, all I want to do is view a specific design, but Figma defaults to be zoomed out and then you have to zoom in and scroll to the specific design in order to see it

Performance

Confluence

Confluence 8.1
Based on 9 answers
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 Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

Support Rating

Confluence

Confluence 7.1
Based on 45 answers
This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

I haven't used their support lately but in the past, they had a chat that I used often. They often responded in a few hours and were able to give a satisfactory solution. I would imagine it's less personal now but the community has expanded drastically so there are more resources out there to self serve with a bit of Google magic.

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!

Alternatives Considered

Confluence

I haven't use any other software that I could compare to AtlassianConfluence. The closest one would be Sharepoint, but it's a different beast. Sharepoint has more feature, but it's a lot harder to use and understand. Furthermore like many Microsoft solutions the UI is terrible and very difficult to understand sometimes. Atlassian Confluence is just plain easy to use.
Benoît Desroches | TrustRadius Reviewer

Figma

Figma doesn't have operating system problems, working well with Windows, Mac, etc (as Sketch is only available on Mac computers), or a lot of bugs and performance issues (as Adobe XD still does). Figma is a lot easier to use as it is 100% web based, winning over these 2 competitors.Also, is worth mentioning the HUGE plugin libraries, embedded into the app. It makes the work a lot easier.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • 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.
Brandon Patton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Figma

  • Lots of saved time and energy by being able to have feedback loops in the same program that stores the designs. We don’t have to use multiple programs to have a conversation about a single design.
  • Being able to have feedback loops within the program also saves on subscriptions to programs designed to solicit feedback, such as Zeplin or InVision.
  • It took significant time to onboard designers who were primarily familiar with the interface of Adobe programs to Figma. Because we primarily use Adobe programs, this took a lot of time that we could have spent creating and iterating.
