Confluence Essentials

Confluence Essentials


You are faced with a new application called Confluence, and the buzz is that it’s a great place to do your work and that it’ll help you collaborate with others. But how does that happen? And how do you get started using it? If you have these or similar questions, then this course is for you.

You’ll learn the basics of Confluence, how to use it to create content and collaborate with co-workers. You’ll first dive into the basics: creating, editing and formatting pages, adding different types of content like files, links and graphics, editing collaboratively and using a hidden power tool– macros. But creating content is only half the story. In the second half of the course, you’ll get into the power-user realm, where you’ll learn to create and manage Spaces to organize content and to extend Confluence with other applications (available from the Marketplace). You’ll also learn how to create content in in software to expose Jira information. This course will get you on the path to becoming a skilled Confluence power-user.
