Overall Satisfaction with Atlassian Confluence
We use Confluence across our organization. We all work remotely so it is a place where we can collaborate on projects, we post our meeting agendas, we post tutorials, training, etc. Any content that employees need to access to do their jobs we put on Confluence. For example, we can put processes on how to complete certain tasks on confluence and we also task each other to complete certain items.
- Organizing content so that people can find what they are looking for.
- Putting restrictions on certain pages so that it can be seen/edited by appropriate employees
- Letting people collaborate on documents simultaneously
- notifying when a page has been updated
- combining content with tasks so that things get done
- 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.
- Overall, I think the impact of Confluence has been positive. As a remote team, it simplifies process and communication for us.
- Confluence streamlines group work and tasks to make it clear who is doing what they should be doing
- Some of my employees do complain that confluence is hard to use and that they can't navigate around very well.
It works well for remote teams that need to communicate and keep track of many projects happening all at once. It keeps everything all in one place so that everyone can find things and we all know where stuff should go. If you are tracking KPIs using complicated formulas in excel, you will find it annoying to try and replicate that in confluence.
