With the Atlassian Companion App, can teams collaborate on one document (similar to google drive)? Edited

My team would like the ability to all work in the same document at the same time. We can do this in Google Drive, but if Confluence has a similar capability then we have fewer places to store and track a working file.

Hello there, Stephanie!

That is a pretty common request to hit our Confluence collection. There are a few differences between what we call pages and documents. Pages are volatile and collaboration focused. Documents tend to be more fixed and slowly edited. 

Confluence pages are created with an specific experience in mind. This experience prompted Atlassian to introduce Collaborative Editing way back, in Confluence 6.0. 

Here is an outlook on this feature:

You can also take a look at the comparison between Google Docs and Confluence, here:

For short, Confluence is not capable of editing documents. We can store them within the platform, but not edit them natively. 

You could also check the Atlassian Marketplace for some third-party plugin that might satiate your needs. Here, take a look:

Hope this helps you out, Stephanie!
