Benefits of linking to Team Central
Many teams have a Confluence page to show what their team is working on. If you're using Jira, you might be familiar with the Jira issue macro or Smart Links. Just pasting a link to a Jira issue on a Confluence page allows you to see the issue's name and its current status. Team Central has the same easy integration!
You'll be able to show Team Central goals/project names and statuses on a Confluence page. Some teams like sections underneath links where they can provide additional information, but since you've already created a great project homepage in Team Central, you won't need to do that! A compact display option might be to put links in a table (or even in-line in a sentence) in Confluence, and interested people can click through to your project's page in Team Central. The status is shown in Confluence next to the project name, and clicking the name shows you the project's status feed.
Here's how to add links from Confluence to Team Central in 3 easy steps:
Smart links do check to make sure that the person viewing the page has access to what's being linked. If you paste the URL on a Confluence page that isn't part of the instance you've got Team Central on, then someone else on that Confluence might just see the URL rather than the project or goal name if they don't have permission to view it in Team Central. This keeps people from accidentally seeing information they don't have access to. Handy!
BUT WAIT there's more!
Let's say you're in a hurry and you don't want to link multiple projects one at a time. And we know your stakeholders are in a hurry - you want to present them with the information they need with the least amount of clicks. Plus, you want to wow them with your Confluence page skills! Let's do that:
