Overall Satisfaction with Atlassian Confluence

[Atlassian] Confluence is being used by our organization across all departments and trams. [Atlassian] Confluence is great for helping our company maintain all documentation, standard procedures, etc. We have a lot of different technologies that we use, so it is great to keep everyone on the same page and house all of these standards.
  • 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
  • The web app has a tendency to be quite slow
  • The export can only export as word or PDF. It would be great if it can also export as markdown.
  • I wish the navigation were a little easier
  • Project Management
  • Communication
  • File Sharing & Management
  • It's affordable and fits well in all organizations allowing them to grow their workflow easily.
  • Helps us create dedicated work spaces giving our staff comfort and proper environment to work on assigned tasks and projects
  • We have been able to consolidate different individual's knowledge into one central area
It's quite famous and consistency and alignment are what we're after with using Confluence and all of Atlassian's products. This has helped us to be more transparent with out product and development teams as well.

Yes

If you're looking to build a tightly integrated suite of documentation, code management, and task management, [Atlassian] Confluence will do a great job and serving the documentation piece of the puzzle. Through short code/actions, you can easily link in-work tickets and on the Jira side of things, you can easily point to documentation to help finish a task. We've done this on a couple of large projects with success. For a general Wiki, it may be a little bit too much infrastructure, and the system may cause you to create too many documents which leads to an organizational hassle.
