How to use this guide

The Confluence User Guide provides an overview of the key features of Confluence and explains both its basic and more advanced usage as a knowledge management tool, and a collaborative environment.

Locate your topic of interest from the list of topics on this page. Or else, just do a keyword search using Confluence's powerful Quick Search facility. The Quick Search box is at the top right-hand corner of the page.
