//SEIBERT/MEDIA and StepShot are now partners!

Every company – no matter how flat, agile and streamlined it is – has many digital processes and workflows. And organizations that use Confluence usually have the goal to record knowledge in one location within the company. StepShot helps teams capture information quickly and easily with their Step-by-Step Guides Creator, an all-in-one software documentation solution integrated into Confluence. Now StepShot and //SEIBERT/MEDIA have entered into an exciting partnership.

Wiki novices, your new content is what’s important in Confluence, not structure or redundancy!

If you’re one of these newbies, this is my advice: don’t worry about this stuff right at the beginning! Don’t spend hours trying to find, fix and understand everything or build a clever structure. Instead, just get your first pages up so you can share your knowledge with your colleagues. This is what is most important in the beginning.

App Center for Confluence: Controlling the visibility of apps for different user groups

App Center for Confluence

App Center is a Confluence app and also a part of the social intranet suite developed by us – Linchpin – which allows users to access the applications, tools and resources they frequently need for their daily work from within Confluence – for example, time tracking, other Atlassian tools, online applications, websites and so on. Now, administrators can configure the visibility of all apps in the selection dialog.

With Confluence Data Center, Atlassian is addressing the increasing technical requirements that large companies are placing on their internal software systems. This includes straightforward and fast scalability, high availability and performance even under heavy use and the reduction of unforeseen and planned downtime. In recent weeks, our product teams have worked intensively to make our own products meet these requirements: The key components of our Confluence-based social intranet suite Linchpin are now Data Center compatible!

Linchpin Intranet

You don’t talk about money – at least not in concrete terms, and never before the start of a project. This seems to be the motto for many providers of intranet solutions. It is certainly true for one particularly large one. But that’s not what you will get with a Linchpin social intranet solution: We are fully transparent about all of the costs and services involved in the entire project.

Jira Tickets or Confluence Tasks: What Makes More Sense?

Confluence tasks - An example

In JIRA, companies manage their projects, epics, user stories and detailed tasks. Requirements are translated into concrete tickets that can be assigned and processed. Dependencies are shown here. Project progress is measured and evaluated with JIRA.

Confluence has also had tasks and tasks lists for several years. On this topic, someone contacted us a while ago on Twitter:

I wonder when you should use Confluence’s task lists instead of JIRA?
