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."

More Atlassian Confluence Pros »

"This solution has helped us with the categorization, organization, management, discovery, and delivery of program and project related information.""The most valuable features are the Integrations, web site, and search.""The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.""The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing."

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."

"This solution would benefit from the implementation of enhanced online forms and template development capabilities.""The areas of this solution that need improvement are the relationships between lists, cross-site web parts, and page-building tools.""The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs."

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.""The price of the on-premises data center version is too expensive."
