Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's easy to search for information.""Confluence can link any ticket or task from JIRA to be included on the Confluence page.""The solution offers a lot of freedom when drafting directly online.""This is a scalable solution that supports thousands of users.""This solution allowed us to easily input details beyond just text, such as creating basic data charts to monitor team performance.""The templates are a valuable feature. You can make templates. There is a space inside where you can create pages. When you use the template, the page auto-generates text and images. You do not have to think about the structure of your page as well, which I think is a very good thing for a user. Because usually when you're in front of a blank page, it can be a bit dreadful to know where to start.""Atlassian Confluence's most valuable features are the ease in which you can use the tool, the flexibility in creating folder structures, receiving notifications in case others put remarks on the documents, and working together on documents.""Collaboration is most valuable. You can upload or create your documents on Confluence and share them with your team members. Your team members also can share documents."

"It is simple to use and it allows me to give me the opportunity to access anything I want from any device.""The stability of Microsoft OneDrive is very good, it is reliable. There were multiple instances where I had lost my valuable data on hard drives in several other places. However, with Microsoft OneDrive, I've never lost a single file."

"Managing user permissions and credentials could be easier.""We have to use other applications that make Atlassian Confluence more customized for what you want. They should improve by adding the ability to make more customizations.""The cost of the solution is too high.""The user interface is a little bit stale. The file attachments and how they work could be improved. There is also room for improvement when it comes to CDNs.""The UX is a little bit all over the place.""There are some issues with performance when creating tables.""When we import the data in Confluence from Word or any other document, the formatting is not correct.""I think the couple of improvement areas would be around Markdown support and support for adding code."

"I think it should be more user-friendly with more tutorials on the full scale of the program.""Microsoft OneDrive could improve because it doesn't support backing up .PST files, which are Outlook data files, and email archives. This is a substantial setback when it comes to Microsoft OneDrive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of the on-premises data center version is too expensive."
  • "Licenses are quite expensive"
  • "There is an annual license."
  • "Pricing wise, it ends up being an expensive solution. In the beginning it's cheap, but by the time you have all the functions you need, it turns out to be expensive."
  • "We have a site license for Atlassian Confluence and there are some limitations on external users."
  • "There is a license needed to use Atlassian Confluence."
  • "There are some cases where you can go on Confluence as a public site without a license, but you will not have all of the features. You can also have a Confluence site that does not require a license just to read the articles. When you have Jira Service Management attached to Confluence, then you can go through the portal of Jira Service Management and read the Confluence articles without the license. This is good because when you are in an ITSM environment, you have many customers, and you do not want them to have to pay just to read articles. Regarding the use of the full features of Confluence, there is a license cost, and it depends on how many users you want."
  • "Maybe we're only using 10% of it, but we have to pay for everything."

  • "The price of Microsoft OneDrive is reasonable and compatible with competitors."

    Top Answer:The security is not as flexible as it is with Dropbox, which means that we can't share our OneDrive files. The price is quite high and it should be reduced.
