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.

If you still have a question that hasn't been answered, write and tell us about it.

titleAdditional Resources

The Frequently Asked Questions page has answers to the some of our user community's most popular questions.

If you are a Confluence developer, you may want to look at our Development Hub or visit the Extensions space.

Go to Documentation Home for links to more resources.
