Creating engaging Confluence pages can be a little daunting, but it doesn't have to be.
Confluence is a great tool for teams of all sizes, and there are a lot of ways you can make it work for yourself and your team. Confluence from Atlassian is an awesome tool for getting all your ideas down on paper and sharing them with your team.
When you start a new Confluence page, you have a blank canvas. How do you start filling it in? In this article, we'll show you how to create an engaging Confluence page that gets your message across quickly and effectively.
Learn how to get the most out of Confluence:
If you're just getting started, here are some tips on how to get the most out of your Confluence pages.
- Make sure you have the basics down pat: Use spaces, pages and templates to give your pages structure, plugins to extend your capabilities, and creativity to build the best pages possible.
- Don't forget that people like pictures! Upload an image or two, or embed a video if it's relevant to your content. Choose interesting images to boost engagement or highlight important information. By choosing an image that reflects your content or highlights important information, you can help increase engagement and focus your reader's attention. For example, if you're writing a page about office parties or events, images or galleries of the party are a great way to start.
- Use videos to give more insights on a topic: Videos are another great way to give your readers more insight into a topic. For example, if you have a meeting recap that works better as a video than written text, adding it to the page can be helpful for your readers.
- Stay consistent! If you want people to use your page as a reference later, make sure you format things consistently so that they're easy to read when people look at them later on (and so that you can find what you need in a hurry).
- Organize your content into Spaces and subpages. In each space, you can create pages for specific purposes. For example, you might create a page called "Sales Reports" in your Sales space. Or you might want to create a page titled "2022 Marketing Strategy" in the Marketing section. You can use the same page title for multiple pages, as long as those pages are in different sections. For example, you could create a page titled "Product XYZ" in both the Sales and Marketing sections.

- If you're not sure how to start writing a page, or if you want some inspiration, you should use a template. Templates are basically ready-made pages that you can use as an example. To get to the templates, click "Create" at the top of the page and choose one from the template overview. If your company has already set up templates for you, they will appear first in this list. After you choose a template, Confluence will guide you through filling it out with your own content (and if you don't like the look, you can create a new template).
Confluence offers a variety of templates that you can use as frameworks for your pages. Spice up your pages with add-ons like plug-ins and macros.
You can also use the Advanced Image Gallery app in Confluence to get the most out of your site!
