This Confluence space is a living example of how to share information with others. You may edit these pages or add to the space whenever you wish. In fact, we encourage you to do so. (smile)

Please direct any sales related questions to sales@atlassian.com or please view our help process if you need general help.

The main idea of Confluence is to make it easy for you to share information with others; team-members, family, and friends. Confluence, at its base, was built on the principle of a Wiki.

A Wiki or wiki (pronounced "wicky" or "weekee", see pronunciation section below) is a website (or other hypertext document collection) that allows a user to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows that content to be edited by any other user. (from wikipedia)

Confluence has many features which extend beyond average wikis. Please find a few of these in the list below. You may also find a growing list at the Confluence Documentation homepage .

Confluence is produced by Atlassian, a Sydney based software firm which is committed to providing legendary service to a global clientele.

  • Source codeThe source code macro is a useful way of presenting technical information to a group of users online. It's use is very straightforward. Any form of code can be included between {code} elements and we provide arguments for XML, SQL, and Java.
  • TasklistThe tasklist macro comes packaged with Confluence (since version 1.3). It allows you to create lists of tasks which need to be performed and keeps track of who has completed them.
  • Thumbnail galleryConfluence builds a gallery of thumbnailed images, attached to the page, by use of the gallery macro.
  • Using SpacesSpaces bind Confluence content together beneath a name. They are the containers for pages, blogs, and email.
