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.

Hope this helps you out, Stephanie!

Glad to know that this helped you out, @Stephanie_Schaefer ! Come share with us someday again.
