This is a guest blog post from Comalatech, makers of the Ad hoc Workflows and Ad hoc Canvas add-ons for Atlassian Confluence.

Confluence 5.1, released last week, introduced Confluence Blueprints–out-of-the-box solutions to common business problems. Blueprints make creating amazing wiki content easy and provide ideas and structure so your organization can get started right away.

Comalatech developed Ad hoc Canvas Blueprints take advantage of Confluence’s new Blueprints functionality. Strategy Canvas and Task Canvas Blueprints allow you get started quicker by inserting popular Canvas boards and business frameworks into your pages and easily manage your teams activities through Task Canvas boards.

Ad hoc Canvas Blueprints

The Strategy Canvas and Task Canvas Blueprints are now accessible through the new Confluence ‘Create’ button. Manage your teams tasks easier with Task Canvas boards. Instantly build and insert popular Canvas boards and business frameworks, such as SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) Analysis, Risk Management Matrix and Product Experience Canvas into your pages. Frameworks are an effective way for organizations to visualize concepts and their relationships, which often go on to form the core content of many management strategies.
