Atlassian’s Confluence is a content collaboration tool that supports modern day teams to manage projects and all related documentation in a central place, allow teams to create knowledge bases which can easily be accessed for new staff or utilised by technical team members to understand environments, application architecture and configurations, document project requirements or provide system FAQ or user manuals. Confluence integrates seamlessly with Jira to integrate project progress charts from Jira to Confluence, to link Jira tasks and stories to Confluence documentation and to create Jira tasks or stories from Confluence requirements in bulk. All information created in Confluence is version controlled and people can collaborate on the real-time editing of documents online as well as through comments.
This is a beginner level course and no pre-requisites from an Atlassian tool perspective are applicable.
User must be comfortable using a PC and have basic computer skills under the belt.
The user needs to use a Confluence compatible browser. Each user needs to check this prior to the training session as our trainers cannot provide technical support on this during training.
