With Confluence it is easy to create, edit and share content with your team. Choose a topic below to start learning how.
Confluence is a collaboration tool where you can create and share content with your team.
You might use Confluence to write and discuss meeting notes, project plans, requirements, how-to guides, or anything you like.
Click the Create button on the header to see some of the types of pages you can create.
A Confluence page can contain text, images, diagrams, activity streams, videos, and more.
Confluence puts your content online in a central place where your team can search, edit and discuss it at any time.
So let's try it! Click here to learn how to edit a page
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 looks like this (click images to for a larger view):
Here is a description of the components:
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.
Pages are the primary means of storing and sharing information in Confluence.
Pages are contained within spaces. This page is in the 'Demonstration Space'.
Let's play with some content. Don't worry, you won't break anything:
When you're ready, click Save and go to the next step or back to the space home.
Congrats to Takuma Sato for winning the 101st Indianapolis 500 (an important event in Hoosierland, where we are located). It's fun to hear the Japanese announcers get excited: http://www.roadandtrack.com/motorsports/a9950008/japanese-announcers-takuma-sato-indy/. Personally, I'm more interested in the upcoming Great American Eclipse (total solar) on 21 August, and am hoping to get our near space balloon up to take some imagery from a different perspective. like from 20 miles up:
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
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.
The Files button is not just for images, you can insert and preview a wide range of files, including Microsoft Office documents and PDFs.
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..
Insert tables with drag and drop simplicity.
Add, remove, cut, and paste rows and columns – this makes working with tables easy.
Page layouts provide structure in your page — two-column, three-column, and more — making it easy for anyone to create beautiful pages.
You can add as many sections as you need, and each section can have a different column layout.
Confluence automatically transforms linked content into rich content. Try it with Confluence pages, JIRA issues, YouTube and Vimeo videos,
Flickr photo streams, Twitter streams, Google maps and many more.
Here's two examples of autoconvert in action.

You can start a discussion by simply leaving a comment on a page, like this one.
Why not give it a try?
Go to the bottom of this page and start typing in the comment area. When you're finished just press save!
Don't just confine your comments to the bottom of the page - highlight some text on the page to add an inline comment like this:
Hint: You can mention another user in a page or comment by typing @ and then the user's name.
The user will be notified that you mentioned them.
Once you've created content you'll want to share it with your team members.
Confluence can do all the work for you, just click the Share button.
The Share button only appears if your administrator has configured a mail server. In Confluence Cloud, this is all set up for you.
