Hi @Or Shalom ,

Certainly Jira is the best choice for project and task management. Confluence is a knowledge base platform, where you can put documents, agendas, reviews, and meeting notes. But for project management Jira is extremely easy for your team to plan, track, release and report

@Parvaneh Zand  Thank you for your quick replay! 
Dose Jira intigrate with SIM ticketing?

Does someone without Jira account can assign task on Jira for my team ?

If  I have a customers within my org but not on my team that wants to assign task to my team, how can they assign it in a way i will see in JIRA?

Read about jira permissions

https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver082/allowing-anonymous-access-to-your-project-973504231.html

https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver082/managing-project-permissions-973504187.html

anonymous users are able to work with Jira and create tickets.

Also the other members of organization (as users of your project) can create issue.

unfortunately I don't know about SIM ticketing integration.

Hi 

I think Jira is better for managing your tasks in a team and you can create subtasks for all your tasks and manage them together and have so many features with it , because any team can have own tasks and manage them.

I think Jira is better for project management with multiple tasks

I recommend using both JIRA and Confluence for project management.  JIRA is an useful tool for tracking tasks, user stories and the team's flow via Kanban.  JIRA does a great job of providing visibility to the team's work in an open and transparent manner.

Status reporting, project dashboards, presentations, roadmaps can be presented in Confluence.  I use Confluence often to track requirements, elaborate on product designs and then integrate with JIRA.

I wrote a couple of posts on the Atlassian community on how you can apply Confluence to manage your projects.

Here are two useful articles:
