Imagine an organisation in which the collective knowledge, learning, and experience of all its people are available at everyone’s fingertips at any moment. Welcome to Confluence.

In the 2023 Confluence Crash Course, you will learn how to harness Confluence to boost your productivity, resulting in more effective collaboration, less time-wasting admin, and an end to information loss. In as little as 2 hours, you will get up to scratch with Confluence and start to understand the ways it can help you in your day-to-day work in 2023.

In this course, we will use a fictional case study company to explore the functionality and applications of Confluence in different business functions, including Operations, HR, Projects, and IT. By switching between each of these functions, you will see how Confluence works collaboratively between team members and get an understanding of the different functionality available for different user levels (e.g., guests, users, admins, etc.). All the examples used in this course are inspired by real-world use cases.

With 5 distinct sections and 3 different starting points depending on your experience level, you will rapidly get up to speed with:

1) An introduction to Confluence

Including: what is Confluence, how to use this course, and an introduction to the case study

2) Confluence Fundamentals – for complete beginners

Including: creating your site, spaces and pages, the interface, page operations, formatting basics, using templates, and permissions.

By the end of this section, you will be able to use Confluence to create, edit and manage pages.

3) Intermediate Confluence – for existing users

Including: collaborative editing, macros, importing pages from Word documents, embedding content, tasks, actions, labels, decisions, comments, notifications, exporting pages, and Confluence for mobile.

By the end of this section, you will have mastered how to use Confluence collaboratively with your team and will be able to make well-structured, content rich pages using macros (dynamic page elements).

4) Advanced Confluence – for administrators (Space Admins, Product Admins, Org Admins)

Including: types of users, page history, embedding live editable documents, editing templates, creating new templates, managing labels, space settings, global settings, managing apps, the Atlassian administration dashboard, and user access management.

By the end of this section, you will have an in-depth understanding of the permissions structure within Confluence and will be able to manage spaces, products, and organizations. This will be particularly useful if you are looking to set up a new Confluence site or are being asked to become an admin for your existing company’s site. It will also be valuable if you are looking to use Confluence for personal projects or simply want to have an understanding of the processes for administrators so you can best work with your own admins.
