How is your team having fun and bonding, remotely, utilizing Confluence?

Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details.

This week’s discussion is a little more fun…well…because it’s about fun! How have your teams utilized Confluence to keep funtivities alive?

Personally, my team had a page where we would guess dates for the “reopening of the office” and would review/update it weekly. At Atlassian as a whole, we celebrated May the Fourth (Be With You) with trivia. Signups were on a Confluence page and people got pretty creative with the gifs and smack talk on that page from all across the globe.

What creative ideas do you have that I can test out? Don’t forget, all commenters are submitted to a drawing for a prize! See you next week.

Great topic @Brittany Sudlow ! We decided to make some COVID-19 related donations as a part of our Pledge 1% commitment. Our team used a Confluence page to take submissions/make decisions about which charities to support. Not necessarily a "fun" way to use Confluence, but it was a good morale booster :)

Donating sounds fun to me :)

We've been writing lots of blog posts. 🙃

I've had a teammates get married, join the team, troubleshoot their unreliable internet connection, get ready to move, and get read to have a baby. All have blogged about it, which has been awesome for us all to celebrate together.

💬I've noticed inline comments have become great spots for jokes and side conversations within each blog. It's like being at a party with different circles of people talking.

Nice question @Brittany Sudlow ! We have done some nice planning sessions using the embedded Trello board in a Confluence page (not all fun, but some of it was since we had break prompts we put on cards). And I have way too much fun setting up Trello boards too...

We are also blogging about what we learn from attending others' webinars and sharing back with others on the team. Would be nice to have a blog template like you guys have @Matt_Reiner__K15t_ !

What project did you transition or start on Confluence with the shift to remote work?

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
