I am currently using Atlassian Answers to ask this question, so there is a hint of recursion here :)
In my projects, the development team often have questions for the business experts and analysts. It would be great if I could purchase Atlassian Answers which does exactly what I would love to have.
Someone could ask a question and others could see the question and think about it.
Then more than one answer could be given, a decision could be made and the whole discussion is available at a later date.
Maybe if I was smarter with Confluence, the answer (pardon the pun) could be staring me in the face?
atlassian has some customizations to make it look/work like it actually does..
i remember reading something about "sharing it" with us but the provided bitbucket link was shut down due to some unclear restrictions on atlassian side i guess
but as you tagged "OnDemand" i am not sure if you can install this
Thanks .. I did not see that in the footer.
OSQA could be the answer, specifically their commercial AnswerHub product, which is hosted and is inexpensive for my small number of users.
It probably will not have nice linkages to JIRA issues and Bonfire test sessions .. but maybe one day ...
Last I heard - Answers is based on the open source system http://www.osqa.net/ but is not packaged up as a product for distribution by Atlassian. I don't know if their customisations are available generally either.
I don't think Confluence lends itself to forums/q&a, but it does complement a system nicely when you use it for documentation and/or a knowledge base. I'd like to see better integration - at the moment, you see a lot of questions answered with "have a look at doc: url to confluence", and I'm sure there's scope for doing that better (although I'm not sure what)
Also, only the other day, one of the Jira experts here released something that I think might be worth a look, if you've got a Jira install knocking around - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/ro.agrade.jira.qanda
Hi Community! I’m Elaine, Confluence Product Manager. You may have read my earlier post about page tree in space navigation sidebar. I'm excited to share another improvement that helps you organize ...
