New on the Atlassian Marketplace: Microblogging for Confluence

Free download for your test environment

What started as a hackathon project at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, has become an alpha version that is available on the Atlassian Marketplace. The plugin Microblogging for Confluence is the first mircoblog extension for Atlassian's social collaboration platform and therefore a solution that allows a seamless and direct information exchange with the team within the wiki - without leaving Confluence.

You can download the first Version for free directly via the Marketplace and evaluate it as you like in a test system.

Optional test on test instances of //SEIBERT/MEDIA

You don’t want to download the plugin and install it locally? No problem - learn about Microblogging for Confluence through our SWIFT-Version! You can login with 2 users and try out the plugin to its full extent.

Excerpt of the Microblogging for Confluence feature list

Usage at space level: Microblogging for Confluence is connected to Confluence-Spaces (with the respective access restrictions)

Confluence editor: Users write their microblog-posts and comments with the familiar, user-friendly Confluence-Editor including all its features

Feedback by clicking: For posts and comments, the plugin offers a “Like”-button, which is common in social networks

Multimedia-Integration: The widget-connector automatically converts multimedia-links (Youtube, Vimeo, etc.) directly into widgets for direct playback

Focused discussion: You can directly address users with @-mentions and include them in the discussion

Findability: Microblog contents are indexed by the Confluence search and marked as an own content type. (For example you can explicitly search for Microblog content)



What is going to happen?

At the moment the development team is collecting feedback of test users of the alpha-version, which will influence the development of the more stable beta-version that will be suitable for a first productive use. The next concrete steps are defined and announced next April based on the feedback received.

If you want to test and evaluate the current state of Microblogging for Confluence, you can send us your wishes, feature-requests and bug-reports easily via the Bitbucket-Instance of the project.
