Wiki Material

to begin with: bloddy confluence newbie here so bare with me


i am planning to set up a wiki-like page for our company. all the info and links we would ever need for all the teams.

as i said: confluence newbie so setting this up all from scratch seems like kind of a huge task. (which i will tackle if i have to) but maybe there are templates for something similar to this?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Confluence is indeed a wiki service, and if you're starting from scratch (or moving from other systems), I would recommend you think about two things here:

1.  Structure.  Confluence divides its data into spaces, and the configuration is generally hung off the space.  So which users can do what, where the landing page and top level pages for a space are held, look and feel, and so on.  Sketch out a broad structure - what you're going to use each space for, and how you need to control access (if at all).  A single space for everything can work fine, for some groups of people, but you will probably find you want to have several - our main Confluence for example, is a mixture of spaces determined by client, team spaces and shared group spaces.

2.  As you say, templates.  Confluence has a load of templates built in, and you can make your own (making them global or only for use in one space).  Make use of those when you're building pages.
