Space Directory

Accessible from the global header, the Space Directory allows users to view spaces by category and add spaces to their favorites list.

Confluence Space Directory

Export Your Content

Confluence provides a number of ways to export your content to other formats. Your content is never locked inside Confluence.

Default Permissions

Administrators can encourage hassle-free Space creation with default Space permissions, so content is inherently secure.

Find Content, Fast

Use the Space Sidebar to create shortcuts to important pages and external links so they are just a click away. Navigate to child pages and recent blog posts with ease.

Use space categories, a special type of label to group related spaces.

Browse by Label

Browse pages in a space by the labels used. Click on any label to view pages with that label and continue clicking labels to filter your results.

Pages

Create Rich Content

Crowd-source meeting notes, share files, define product requirements, record project plans, and write beautiful documentation. Confluence handles it all.

Page Templates

When adding a new page to a space, there's no need to create it from scratch. Instead, you can start with a page template.

Import Word Documents

Convert your Word documents into collaborative wiki pages where they are secure, searchable, viewable, and editable by users with the right permissions.

Restrict Pages

Page restrictions allow you to control who can view or edit individual pages. Child pages inherit 'view' restrictions from their parent.

Page Hierarchy

Pages in a space can be organised into a hierarchy of parent and child pages. These page families are a simple but effective way of categorising your content.

Page Versioning

Confluence tracks every edit and maintains a version history for each page. It is easy to view changes between different versions and to restore a previous version if required.

Blueprints

Ready-made solutions to common business problems - create content that's consistently formatted, automatically organized, and easy to find.

Labels are user-defined tags that can be applied to pages and blog posts. Labels allow users to sub-categorize pages and group content across multiple categories and spaces.

Like Pages

Similar to Facebook, 'Likes' encourage user engagement on pages, blogs, and comments, and drive discovery of 'Popular' content.

Like Confluence Pages, Blogs and Comments

Change Comments

Summarize your edits with change comments – a useful way of keeping track of the history of a page. Change comments show up in the page history and in email and RSS notifications.

Export Pages

Want to share content with someone outside of Confluence? Confluence allows you to export a single page, a family of pages, or an entire space. You can even apply custom styles to PDF output.

Trackback Links

Enable Trackback to have Confluence send a Trackback ping to any external page you link to.

Recover Deleted Pages

Confluence automatically places deleted pages into the 'Trash.' Pages can be recovered until a space administrator empties the trash.
