Confluence is a wiki software that is used primarily for communication and knowledge sharing in companies, but also increasingly as a public wiki.


The Home of Confluence is the Dashboard. It is divided into five areas:

The left column is a list of wiki spaces for which the logged in user has at least read access.
Quick links

Among the spaces there are three links:

created a new Wiki Space
Feed Builder
created a configurable RSS Feed
People Directory
Link to the list of users
Tools and search
In the upper bar is the search box and Login or Logout
Last changes
Below the recently modified items in chronological order are displayed.
Right below are the personal favorites of a user.

To modify the documents Confluence has an XML-based visual editor that supports drag and drop, autocompletion of shortcuts and macros as well as entering Textile markup.
