I’m a content manager at Polontech and what I enjoy the most is the process of writing. I used to think that all I would need for my work is Microsoft Word and my muse. Yet as I was getting more and more acquainted with Atlassian instruments, I understood that Confluence provides too powerful content management capabilities to be so easily ignored.
So there are two wonderful ways I use Confluence for:
1.to manage information and links from various platforms
At some point i’ve noticed my research files are not just disorganized – they are simply scattered around Google Drive, Evernote and OneDrive. I could have transported all the data into one system, but instead I integrated the platforms with Confluence and got a nice solid knowledge base without painful lengthy migration.
2. organize manager’s approvals of my content
When I submit my articles for review, i can’t be really called an editorial process – more of a factcheck, to make sure I got all the technical details right. Still I have to kind of distract my colleagues from their direct duties, which is rather awkward. With Page Approal addon for Confluence I simply appoint a reviewer for my latest article without the hustle of sending links and docs and get timely reports from my co-workers. Confluence also offers similar addons – Comala Workflows Lite for Cloud and Approval Macro, but I just like Page Approval the most. I guess it’s the matter of preference.
I hope that many other outstanding discoveries await me on my Confluence content management journey, but for now that’s all I found out. If you want to try Confluence for yourself and don’t know how to approach this tool, you can always get in touch with our consulting team.
