Overall Opinion: Confluence works as a great addition to your larger business, especially if you already use other Atlassian tools, including Jira, a software application for tracking issues, and HipChat, a team messenger application. If your business on the small or medium size or has no need for the Jira application, you may be better off going with a project management software that allows for more customization and flexibility. Besides integration with other Atlassian workplace tools, Confluence can also be integrated with Google Apps for even more uses. The software is easy to set up, with the option for a two week free trial before purchase. Confluence does not offer a free plan, however, so after the two week trial you need to purchase a plan in order to continue using the services. Compared to other project management software, Confluence can be costly depending on how many users you need. Once Confluence is set up, you can customize the names and amount of Spaces you need for your company. These spaces are where everything for a certain team are kept, including links to project requirements, meeting notes, or other information. The Spaces and other pages are easy to use and navigate through. Another feature of Confluence is a calendar application where all of the team members can see due dates, and dates for each project can be coded a specific color. However, this feature is an additional cost, which seems odd considering it is a necessary tool for a project management software. You can also upload documents and comment on each document, but the software lacks some extra document collaboration features present in other similar applications.
Pros: Integration support for Jira and HipChat, other Atlassian tools, as well as Google Apps Easy to set-up and use with intuitive navigation functions Offers a variety of templates to customize the design of your application Easy to upload and share documents and other important files Allows team members to comment on documents Spaces give each team a place to find all of the documents and links necessary for projects
Cons: Lacks some features and design elements present in other project management software Costly compared to other similar applications, especially for small businesses still in the growing phase Specific documents can be hard to find due to the lack of an intuitive search
Confluence is team collaboration software that changes how modern teams work. Create, share, and collaborate on projects in one place to keep your projects moving forward Capture, store, and...
