A modern, collaborative social intranet to replace a classic, static intranet brings many changes with it but also presupposes a number of changes to ensure its success. One key aspect is transparency as actively fostered by Atlassian Confluence and Linchpin.
Companies are up to their necks in internal emails and they want a system that will alleviate the clutter. The Atlassian systems promise exactly that: to reduce the amount of internal email. However, at the same time, Confluence, Jira & Co. are not exactly squeamish when it comes to sending automated email notifications. At first glance, this may seem to be contradictory, but in fact, the questions above miss the main point, because it is not about fewer emails, but instead about less work time spent on email.
If you avoided adding images to Confluence in the past, because it was too much hassle to manually configure and format your page, you’ll be happy to know there are now tools that will make it smoother, easier, and faster. Plus, you won’t have to switch between contexts and tools so often!
Confluence is hugely valuable and once you have started using it it’s hard to imagine going back to a time before Confluence. However, the more actively it is used, the more often teams will request specialized functions. We’ve listed our top ten apps that help teams and organizations work together more efficiently and effectively.
