Sharepoint vs Confluence - Ability to create "Lists"?

We are looking to dump an old version of Sharepoint in favor of a new platform for document management, collaboration, documentation etc.

We are a small team with a single product and all the product design etc functionality of Confluence combined with JIRA really appeals.

I believe we can replace our current Sharepoint with Confluence completely except for one feature - creating lists.

In sharepoint we have the ability to create a "list" and define a subset of columns for the associated items.

I can't find such a feature in Confluence, does one exist?

Note; I'm aware we can embed some Sharepoint content into Confluence but that's not what I'm looking for. If we go with Confluence, the server containing Sharepoint will be promptly submerged in the nearest body of water.

Hi, all Lists, i ever needed, i did with the "checklists macro" plugin or Excel. I heard of some reportingplugins beeing used for lists as well and there might be a dedicated list/table plugin out there, that i am not aware of. For starters, check out the documentation to the checklistsmacro from comalech. One sidecomment: check out the "technical writers tutorials" and blogs from Mrs. Maddox. She has lots of valuable insights Bout organizing techdokumentation o confluence. Enjoy

The closest thing we have to SharePoint lists in Confluence is the Page Properties Report. To get a good sense for how the page properties report works, check out the Product Requirements Blueprint.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the feedback. I think that almost get's us to where we need to be.

The lack of filtering might hurt a little, but I think this might help close the gap!

How to use Confluence Cloud for stakeholder management

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
