Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable features are hyper-linking, the Drawing Tool, and enhanced tables.""It's extremely intuitive.""It is just the fact that it is a one-stop shop for all project documentation. It is compared to storing things in files and directories and stuff like that. It provides the overall usability and accessibility of many projects and documents in one area.""The integration's very good. You still have integration with lots of third party products, and it's very good.""It is easy to use.""There is a good library of templates for a wide range of needs.""It integrates well with other Atlassian products""The most valuable features are the ease of creating documentation, as well as charts."

"The cloud service and Skype are the most valuable features.""It is very easy to deploy.""Most of the work that seems not to work offline works perfectly with Microsoft Office 2013, like converting a Word document to a PDF file.""The functionality that is most valuable is the solution's ability to detect patient data in email attachments. Whenever a user sends out an email with patient data embedded in an attachment, it triggers an alert. The tool can detect a social security number and various other forms of patient identity. Emails are then automatically generated and sent.""It's very stable.""Many of the features in Office 365 are good, but I think Excel is a very good tool.""The most valuable feature is the integration with OneDrive, which has allowed us, a small business, easy access to a cloud environment, with no need to back up the data from five different computers.""The integration with other applications is pretty good."

Cons
"The standard table capability is substandard and virtually unusable.""The UI is good but bland. It could be updated a bit to make it more modern and interesting to look at.""It would be good if they can continue working towards making documentation and editing as quick and easy as possible. It has got a lot of capability, but I don't know how to use it. I don't find some of the things that intuitive. Sometimes, it doesn't seem obvious to me how to use it, but it is like learning any new tool. You actually need to get trained on the tool to get maximum out of it.""This is kind of by design, however, the lack of control in terms of editing the page to make it look the way you want it to look is an issue. It would be nice if there was more flexibility there.""The product should have a workflow with approvals out-of-the-box.""Space maintenance could be made a little more user-friendly.""I would like to see integration with Slack.""It would be interesting if they had graphical templates that allowed typical agile ceremonies to be documented better."

"Using Office 365 is not that flexible on some mobile devices, like Android.""The feature to convert PDF file to a Word document needs improvement as well as the feature to save the file automatically when typing, without using the save command.""Improvements can be made to the products generic offering. It's not customized for health care. It doesn't understand the meaning of health care related concepts. Providing a greater degree of industry specificity would make the tool much more unique and valuable.""There are several additional features we would like to see, such as advanced features of SAN protection in Office 365. The main thing is the SAN protection; we would like to see a lot of advanced features added because we had a lot of spam attacks.""Using Visual Basic, I have had a lot of trouble with relative paths when programming for Excel, and sometimes it is very difficult to debug programs.""Integration between Outlook calendar and Google Calendar would be a good improvement since many of our team use Android phones and personal Gmail accounts as their main calendar application.""If two people update the same file, it causes issues.""I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For us, it's free to use. We don't pay any licensing.""When you purchase this solution you get some support.""The issues I have with the pricing are in respect to the add-ons."

More Atlassian Confluence Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is good for all the features that we receive, e.g., Skype for Business.""The pricing is not really high, but one can get the software with the license key for free.""The pricing is high and has actually caused us to limit the number of licenses we purchase due to budgeting.""I think that we pay $9.99 USD per user, monthly."
