Each conversation ever:
- Teodora, is there information about...
With more than 900 Confluence pages behind my back, believe me, I know stuff. And I write stuff.
I'm standing right behind the idea of providing a detailed, well-explained information flow to my coworkers, and help them achieve more and search less. From product development to marketing assets and event organization, the adequately structured internal knowledge base can save time, unnecessary efforts, and a good amount of nerves. And the moto of my shared Confluence Spaces is always, "If it looks too obvious, you should probably write it down."
Don't underestimate the details
Always strive to give your team knowledge about every piece of the project. It may seem too much, but the value for each person hides in a different spot.
Use the full potential of your Confluence
If you feel like you need a new Space for the project that you are working on, create one! Keeping several well-ordered spaces is more comfortable than trying to rename and reorder pages to fit in your new project.
Keep it organized
Don't spare characters and keep your spaces organized better than your wardrobe. Confluence is preventing you from naming more than one page with the same name not to stop you from being productive but to allow the creation of easy to find, well-structured pages and spaces.
Always know that it worths the efforts
You'll ask yourself at least once if this content would help someone. The answer is Yes, even if you don't receive a pack of candies at your front door.
For example, I'll guide through my Atlassian Summit 2019 project and share my building blocks for setting up a good internal information space.
