Atlassian Confluence is simple to use. It is easy to navigate the information base, especially with the search functionality. It provides useful update information in a non obstructive way. It has a simple organization system as well. Entering information is also very easy to do and allows users to present the information is an easy to digest format.

Easy to learn and easily accepted by most users I have seen. Thanks to notifications and rules and constraints, once the solution is set up, the users get used to working with it. The quality of documents shared among them is much higher, compared to sending messages, Word documents or mail-attachments, etc.

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.

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.

Overall I find Confluence to very pleasing to use. I don't feel like it's getting in the way of the task at hand. It just feels easy. Creating pages, editing pages, finding pages, sharing pages, exporting, printing, organizing all feel natural to me. Occasionally using certain macros can be cumbersome inside the WYSIWYG editor but for the most it's smooth.
