Managing content in Confluence: Statistics and reporting

The fourth installment of my Confluence article series has been a long time coming. In the fall I was busy building the spec for Midori’s Archiving Plugin 2.0 (Midori started a discussion with me based on my previous article), and soon after I started to train my successor at Appelsiini, as I would leave my post in January for a round-the-world trip. I wanted to add some images and/or illustrations to make the article easier on the eyes, but I’m finally at a point where I just want to get it published. Jatka lukemista »

(The pain of) managing content in Confluence

Creating content in Confluence is easy and fun. It’s not perfect – in fact even content creation in Confluence still has a long way to go, but compared to the competition the tools are excellent and the important thing is: it just works. People do create content, in great quantity at great speed. The area where Confluence needs to develop is in the mature phase of wikis – content management.

This article series is an attempt to provide Atlassian some feedback about Confluence’s (lack of) content management tools. It it also meant to serve as a discussion platform for Confluence users around the world, swapping ideas and evolving the features discussed in the articles. Hopefully it will spur discussion within Atlassian as well and help them focus on what’s important for more mature instances. How do you make the most of your content as the wiki matures?

Each article will focus on one or two topics, this first one introducing the subject and discussing content refactoring. Jatka lukemista »
