As a Confluence user, you know the power of collaboration. Sharing information, ideas, and projects creates a work environment where everyone can contribute to the greater whole. And more and more people are concerned with creating collaborative work environments. As the Harvard Business Review put it, “Collaboration is taking over the workplace.”
We’ve built Confluence to be the place for your team’s work, documents, and ideas, so that everyone can be on the same page. And, with the Confluence add-ons available in the Atlassian Marketplace, you can take your collaboration even further. With the wealth of options out there, we’ve picked a few of the best Confluence add-ons to get you started.
Customize & organize your Confluence spaces
Ever wish you could better organize or add a little something special to your team’s space in Confluence? Refined Theme for Confluence gives you the editing tools you need to control the look and feel of your Confluence spaces. If you want to organize your content, you can choose from pre-designed space templates or create your own.
Pro Tip: Add dashboards to categories and subcategories, or edit space layouts for greater flexibility.
Connect your CRM to Confluence
Like most businesses, you probably have a group of happy customers that you would like to keep happy. Most likely, you use a CRM system to manage their information because you’re smart and you know that having one reduces process time and increases productivity when you’re working to keep those relationships alive and well. But wait, you probably use Confluence too, right? Just think of all the time (and money) you could save if you used Confluence to manage your CRM instead of using an external system.
Atlas CRM for Confluence integrates customer relationship management functionality into Confluence. Now you can view your customer information in a single location with the rest of your documentation, right inside Confluence.
We all know sticky-note reminders are a thing of the past, but who said that to-do lists have to be boring? MeisterTask for Confluence has a beautiful design that makes task management efficient and enjoyable. Its intuitive UI ensures that your team will be up and running within seconds with no training required.
Tasks in MeisterTask are highly collaborative and support comments, notes, checklists, tags, due dates and time tracking – so you always know who did what, and how long it took. Get it now.
Pro Tip: Embed your projects in Confluence pages to include a dynamic table of your project so you can see task statuses, assignees and the original links.
Reflect on a project
Running a retrospective session after completing a project is one of the best ways a team can improve their processes in the future. Dedicating time to review a project or a sprint helps you learn from the successes and the failures you’ve experienced and make it better moving forward.
Agile Retrospectives for Confluence is an add-on you can use to run your next retrospective session in an interactive and engaging way. You and your team members will input your ideas and thoughts simultaneously so you can discuss topics and vote for the most important ones. Use this free add-on for your next retrospective session. Check it out.
Pro Tip: Sort the results of the retrospective to keep track of the progress on action items. You can filter by resolved and unresolved items and also by team members assigned to tasks.
These are only a few of the thousands of add-ons available within the Atlassian Marketplace.
