Microsoft Teams vs Confluence

I have quite a bit of experience with Confluence and would like to introduce it to my new firm.

The new firm already has Microsoft Teams, does anyone have a view on Confluence Cloud vs the Wiki component native to Microsoft Teams?

I would also like to know a bit about the Wiki component. Is it just SharePoint pages in the background?

They are stored in SharePoint not as pages but in a hidden SharePoint list.

@Charlie Veneziano ,


It really depends what you want the docs for.

The wiki element of Microsoft Teams is very limited in the functionality, it doesn't support collaborative editing, dynamic elements, rich content. it is a pretty limited markdown wiki and it is hard to link/search between documents and teams.

The wiki fits very well if you want to have some kind of a team/channel readme or FAQ.

@Jonathan Smith the wiki documents are stored in the Share Point, but they are not fully-blown pages.

As already mention by @Move Work Forward the wiki in Teams is very limited and in no way comparable to Confluence. There are a lot of Microsoft 365 customers that would like to see the wiki tab hidden.

Hey @Charlie Veneziano I wrote an in-depth review of all available wiki solutions for Ms Teams. 

Currently if you are ok with having separate logins for all of your teammates to Atlassian Confluence and you don’t need proper integration with Microsoft Teams, then you should use it. Otherwise, I would not recommend it.
