Compare Confluence vs. SharePoint
Confluence is a company-wide knowledge & project collaboration tool. See how it compares with Microsoft SharePoint.
Confluence vs. SharePoint
Confluence is a single source of truth for organizations while SharePoint is used for archiving files. Confluence integrates with the full Microsoft Suite to take your company’s collective intelligence to the next level.
Knowledge flows freely between teams
SharePoint files are siloed in folders and become obsolete instantly
Find information fast with a single source of truth. Confluence’s open, connected structure allows critical knowledge to be shared amongst everyone within an organization.
Permissions keep employees informed or protects sensitive intel
Find pages with advanced search, labels, and page hierarchies
Home pages provide quick access to critical content
Increase employee engagement
SharePoint’s commenting & co-editing social features are clumsy
Collaborate on projects and plans across teams, all in one place. Get updates when changes are made or track version history to stay in the loop and move work forward, collaboratively.
Co-editing in real-time and @ mentions keep teams in sync
Inline comments & likes keep conversations engaging and focused
Blogs create a culture of sharing and personal connection
Faster time to value
SharePoint requires heavy admin investment to set up and customize
Spend more time doing what matters, not setting up your site. Spin up intuitive team and project spaces in seconds flat with guided onboarding and deep Jira Software integrations. Ship, don’t set up.
Powerful admin controls for easy customization
Out-of-the-box Home page comes with company intel for every user
Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Trello integrations
Create flexible and dynamic content
Microsoft’s 365 Suite limits content creation into distinct file formats
Confluence unites individual Word, Excel, and PPT documents into one versatile page. Forget switching between tabs and wondering which presentation had that piece of information.
Pages built with “slash” commands and endless editing options
Macros power pages with automation, intelligence, and more
80+ templates like meeting notes and decision tracking
Jira Service Management
