Confluence is a wiki software that is used primarily for communication and knowledge sharing in companies, but also increasingly as a public wiki.
The Home of Confluence is the Dashboard. It is divided into five areas:
- The left column is a list of wiki spaces for which the logged in user has at least read access.
- Quick links
Among the spaces there are three links:
- created a new Wiki Space
- Feed Builder
- created a configurable RSS Feed
- People Directory
- Link to the list of users
- Tools and search
- In the upper bar is the search box and Login or Logout
- Last changes
- Below the recently modified items in chronological order are displayed.
- Right below are the personal favorites of a user.
To modify the documents Confluence has an XML-based visual editor that supports drag and drop, autocompletion of shortcuts and macros as well as entering Textile markup.
