How pretty pages boost project collaboration for teams
Fight TL-DR and improve engagement and retention
They say beauty is only skin deep, but when it comes to project collaboration, looks matter.
Still sending your team long emails or text-heavy documents to read before a meeting? Chances are, they’re quickly scanning them over or, worse yet, ignoring them all together. When you get into the meeting, meaningful communication gets put on hold while you walk everyone through what they should already know.
It’s commonly believed that people remember much of what they see and very little of what they read, which makes long, dense blocks of text the death of engagement and retention. You can’t effectively share information and knowledge if no one is reading your work.
That’s why text alone won’t cut it, whether it’s in an email, document, or even a text message. You can hop on a call instead, but sometimes you just need it “on paper” – especially for async collaboration. When you need to put your thoughts in writing, the right presentation breaks up all that text with imagery, color, and white space. Making your pages gorgeous boosts engagement and comprehension, which energizes teams and spurs innovation. Putting in just a bit of effort with a collaboration platform can get you there, allowing you to create beautiful pages that your team will actually read.

There are plenty of collaboration platforms that let you build good-looking pages, but Confluence blends the capabilities of word processing and coding to take it a step further. To get started, type the / command to choose from a host of Macros to format your page, or use the top menu to scroll through all the various page enhancements. The latest additions include table visualizations, customized panels, and more. You can even go to the Marketplace to find integrations that let you bring in Mural templates, Figma illustrations, and other enhancements. The result is a page as pretty as a slide or website with minimal effort.
Here are a few of our favorite options for creating beautiful Confluence pages that boost engagement and move project collaboration forward.
