Why would I create a Knowledge Base vs. a Team Space

I am about to create a new space and I am confused whether or not I should create a Knowledge Base or a Team Space.

What are the fundamental differences between the two?

Why would I create one over the other?

Hi Dakotah,

The fundamental difference is the Team aspect. In a Team Space there is also a great focus on your team and how to manage it. In The knowledge base there is only focus on presenting, searching and creating knowledge.

Ofcourse nothing prevents you from creating a Team Space and also use the page templates from a Knowledge Base Space. It's still a Confluence Space and it can be modified any way you want.

Best regards,
