"It is a very popular tool."
"I like the documentation. It's a central platform, and there are many things that I can do with it. I'm very pleased about it."
"The solution is stable."
"The most valuable features of Atlassian Confluence are version management and search and linkage to the JIRA tickets. They are integrated very well together. You can have links from many places and can easily jump from one to the other. If you want to find all the information about a topic, you only need to click and you receive the information."
"The best feature is the automatic tagging of information in documents. The automatic algorithm highlights irrelevant information that conflict with the actual documents."
"It's easy to use and you can create all types of pages."
"The most valuable feature of Atlassian Confluence it's very easy to use and there are different options."
"The solution is very intuitive and provides excellent content management."
"We use it for documentation management, to collaborate with Microsoft Teams, web calls, web conference calls, chats, and as a documentation repository mainly. We have an Office pack suite to be able to write documentation, make spreadsheets, and create PowerPoints."
"It's inexpensive to license."
"OneNote is the feature I use the most. We also frequently use the Power Apps features."
"The way the ERP presents information for the user is very good."
"The most valuable features of Office 365 are Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Teams. Teams helped us to collaborate more through its call and document sharing features."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration."
"There's a lot there in terms of apps and features."
"It is stable."
"I would like to see more macros provided by the company included in the license."
"Atlassian needs to provide the source editor or a built-in plugin."
"The roadmap feature should be made easier to work with and modify. It's not really scalable."
"Some macros can be technical, and they are better managed on the Confluence cloud rather than on-premises. For example, when you add an image on the cloud, you can resize it just by using the mouse. This is not the case on-premises yet. You have to write pixels of the size of the image sometimes. Some of the very old macros are still there, and some of them are technical. It can be hard for users if they are not from an IT background to understand how to use them quickly."
"When we have a project that we don't want to share with everybody but want people to know that it exists, there is no way to do this in Confluence. When a project is not shared, people cannot see that it exits."
"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."
"When you are creating a table in Confluence, there is no tool to export it into Excel sheet for quick references. We can only export it as an a PDF file, but not into an editable file."
"The cost of the solution is too high."
"Microsoft Word is a little bit left behind regarding the tools it has."
"The integration with mobile services is not so good. It's coming, but they could improve a lot."
"Office 365 could allow for smoother collaboration with other companies, which is the main reason we use it. The B2B connection is something we need, like global adverse lists between two tenants or multiple users. That's what we're missing at the moment."
"It could be more user-friendly for inexperienced people."
"As a private user, I do not appreciate the cloud features, but I doubt that this is something Microsoft would consider a feature request."
"Office 365 could be easier to use at first. Tutorials are needed to know how to use the solution."
"I would like to see better integration with Teams, and better usability with SharePoint."
"We have found that, with Teams, if you are including one more person who is not in the company ecosystem, supposedly I'm inviting them as a guest in the chat. However, when I do that, I can't share files."
