When I started using Confluence, I was seen as a Confluence expert because I knew how to use wiki mark-up - there was no WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor back then. Jumping forward to 2019 and I am reminded I still have a lot to learn about Confluence.
A WYSIWYG editor - a Confluence contributor's best friend.
In this article I'll share a few tricks I learnt last week. You can benefit from these timesavers now (if you are not already using them) rather than over a decade after your first login to Confluence like me.
"Why don't we have a company study group?" one insightful team member asked and with a zing there was a Jira issue in my sprint to get the study group running. A few clicks, whirrs, and umms later I had a plan for the first topic area - Confluence. I would lead the class (it's good practice for being an Atlassian Authorised Instructor) and I would use the resources available to TechTime Initiative Group as an Atlassian Solution partner and Authorised Trainer.
The motivation of the attendees was varied. A new team member wanted to learn more about Confluence as a new user, someone else uses Confluence daily but wanted to build on their skills to become an power user, and other people are working towards their Confluence Administrator Certification.
