Is there any best practice of how to use Conflunce for basic HR needs?

Hello there! I would really like to know whether there are any suggestions or plug- ins I am not familiar with,that could help me manage HR issues. I thought that creating a page per employee were I could keep data(skills,training,certifications, leaves,incompliancies etc) is a good idea. Is there any other solution better?

Could Team Calendars help me on that as well, and are the in sync with MS Outlook?

 

Thanks in advance

I found this nice plugin that lets you create more detailed user profiles

This sounds like a good start.

As for Team Calendars, I guess that depends on how many users you would have. There also might be a lot of features you won't need, since this is mainly aimed at developer teams. Otherwise, yes, it syncs with Outlook.

@Nicolas Bourdages By syncs with Microsoft you mean both ways? Can I enter a meeting to MS Calendar and give the info back to my Team Calendar?

That's what the documentation says. You can "subscribe" to your Outlook calendar from Confluence, and the other way around. I've never tried the plugin, but the doc seems clear on that point.

@Nicolas Bourdages I tried it and it gets data from Team Calendar to Outlook, but not backwards as it was expected.

I see. Thank you for the heads up. I really thought it could sync the other way too. Maybe open a support request with Atlassian, to see if they can explain the sync options in more details?

If you decide to use the one-page-per-staff-member approach, you could use:

@Ferenc Kiss [Midori] Thanks a lot! I will give it a try and get back to you to let you know how it went Cheers
