What is Confluence? (step 1 of 9)

You might use Confluence to write and discuss meeting notes, project plans, requirements, how-to guides, or anything you like.
So let's try it! Click here to learn how to edit a page
A quick look at the editor (step 2 of 9)
You will use the Confluence editor to create and edit Confluence pages.
You can type into the editor as you would in any document, apply formatting, and embed other content and files into the page.
The editor toolbar provides tools to format and color page content, create lists and tables, indent and align text, and insert other content into the page such as symbols, links, images, multimedia files, and macros.
This is where you will type the content for your page. You can also drag attachments from your desktop here.
Save buttonClick the Save button to publish your page so others can see your changes.
Let's edit this page (step 3 of 9)
Pages are the primary means of storing and sharing information in Confluence.
Pages are contained within spaces. This page is in the 'Demonstration Space'.
This is southern Michigan and eastern Wisconsin, with Lake Michigan that we took with a Canon Sureshot, looking northwest, as the balloon was floating above Angola, Indiana at about 95,000 ft. High altitude balloons are edge devices, you know... - Dave B
Prettify the page with an image (step 4 of 9)
The Confluence editor helps you create content, fast. You can embed images, Office documents, and videos.
That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to creating useful content for your team.
It did not see that the Confluent Tie image file was attached, so I added one. But when I apply the curled shadow and save that property, the change does not take affect..

Add, remove, cut, and paste rows and columns – this makes working with tables easy.
