Hi all,

I'm Pahniti - been working on Salesforce implementation for our non-profit, and now onto Confluence! 


Looking forward to joining the community! I'm just getting started trying to install Confluence on our servers, and can use any tips and tricks, lessons learned I can get as a power user working with an over loaded IT department.

Lucky for me, I cleaned up my desk before I left for vacation so not a ton of stuff here aside from my 2016 Cleveland Cavs Championship banner.

Namaste! This is Jehosh’, one of Jira admins in our company. Looking for inspiration from this awesome community to make the most of this fantastic tool. 

On my desk there are 2 twenty something inches screens, a mouse, a keyboard and plenty of space for my mind to wander around.  

Hello community!

Hi everyone. Chris Freeman here, joining what seems to be an awesome group of people. I've worked in Jira/Confluence for years as a user, but now I've been moved over to help implement a system, and they seem to be struggling. Maybe you guys can help me help them?

@Chris Freeman Welcome, Chris! There's no better place than the Community to get some support — feel free to drop any specific questions in the relevant product collections. 😄

WELCOME to all you awesome peeps who have recently said hello and showed us your desk ! !

I did my own hello post some time ago but decided to do an update due to a new item that's technically not on my desk... but at it! 

It's my new Status Page and it's fricking AWESOME! (Glows in the dark!!!!)

So a nice big welcoming wave to you all from Rotterdam today!

Hi All, 

I am joining you as a Confluence fan! 

I used it on my daily job and then I love it so much that I now use it for my side job on 3d Printing.. documentation is so important in any business that it is clear that confluence helps to make it seamless 

you don't even feel like documenting... ;-)

@vijay sharma Welcome to the Atlassian Community. 😄


I am a Scrum Master working with an engineering firm in Grand Rapids.  I have been a member of the community for some time, but I have not been interacting or utilizing the community to it's fullest potential.  I would love some suggestions on how to get more involved!

On my desk:

  • Photos of my husband, 3 kids, and dog
  • a welcome back card from my colleagues (I just returned from a 12 week maternity leave!)
  • coffee mugs.  lots of them...i should probably start cleaning them for reuse....
  • oh yeah, and a computer.  ;)

Hi @Tiffany Lirones

welcome to our Community!

Besides technical questions or discussions, have a look at our Friday Fun posts. You can still comment on every single one of them. Or join some of our groups. Hope you like them.

@Tiffany Lirones Welcome, Tiffany! Always love to see a fellow Michigander here. 😄 The Welcome Center is a great place to start for FAQs and best practices, and then most folks click "Watch" on product collections they care most about. Our most engaged members move on to become Community Leaders (answering questions, writing articles, etc.), and we reward them with lots of cool perks. 🎉

Hi Tiffany and welcome to the community!

I'm very interested in your mug collection on your desk. How do you decide which one to use? Just asking for... a friend... 😁I have a few on my desk as well but normally tend to use one of them for a while and then maybe switch to another one. Currently, my big Starbucks "Washington" (State) mug is my absolute favorite because of some fond memories.

Hi everyone! My name is Juanra. I have been here for a while, as I have been working with Jira and Confluence for several years now, and this community is one of the best places to get responses and learn about both of them.

Good Morning Atlassian, I'm a Senior Experience Designer and this is my second day looking around Jira and Confluence.  I have used Trello Boards since 2014 and LOVE them so I'm excited to see what Jira is all about.   I have coffee on my desk and the view outside my window is my wooded side yard!

Welcome Judith! Jira is much more than a super powered Trello, and can be a bit overwhelming at the beginning, so don't worry if things look a bit harder the very firsts days. Just think that there are a lot of things you can achieve with Jira that are just impossible with Trello, but the friendliness of Trello makes it the way to go sometimes, so it's a matter of choosing the right tools for the right tasks.


Erica Moss Community Manager Sep 09, 2019

@Judith Harris Welcome, Judith! I, too, love Trello and use it to coordinate both my personal and professional worlds. 😄 Be sure to check out the Friend of Taco badge challenge, and let us know if you have any questions.

Hi guys 

I am back working with Atlassian tools after a few years with a more administrative focus. 
I had the role as administrator and is entering a similar role now. It has been a few years since last time I worked in this role, so I will perhaps need the help of the community :) 
And I will be talking some on demand courses
And i am from Norway :)

Hi! I'm Carla, a community aficionado, that is of any community that brings all the differences to combine them into a colorful and flavorful synergistic environment! I have been using Atlassian products as a software engineer, now I have a different role in the company and hope to bring in Jira flavors for managing our workflows. I love writing code and learning new tools, both digital and tangible ones. My desk picture isn't loading, might be because it's not compatible with Windows 7. Did I say I like learning new tools? Well, thank goodness I have until January to upgrade! (I am not a procrastinator!)

@Brian Welcome, welcome!

Hello, I am David in NYC, supporting our team with Atlassian Jira Software for Kanban workflows.

Hello, World of Atlassian! I use my dining room table for my desk. I sit in my great-grandpa's orange fiberglass armchair from the 60's. On my work surface I usually have my cat, colored markers, notebook and a bottle of "Focus" essential oil that keeps me focused on everything except my work. My other desk is my standing desk, a.k.a. the kitchen counter.

Hi All!


My name is Sarah and I'm currently a Confluence novice but I hope to become a power-User within the month. 

I work at a large university and I'm responsible for creating a repository for policies administered across the University. It's a big undertaking  - and I'm not really sure where to start - so any advice on where to begin and what to focus on would be awesome! :)

Hey Sarah!

Welcome to the community, here's a great place to start your journey. Recently an article about an Atlassian Confluence tutorial for beginners had been shared on social media. There are also two free Skillbuilder seminars about Confluence Content Management and using Confluence for Documentation/Knowledge bases (scroll down). Maybe this helps you to get started. :)

Best, Max
