The NYU & ITS Wikis Guide User's Guide provides an overview of the key features of Confluence and explains its basic and advanced usage as a knowledge management tool and a collaborative environment. If you still have a question that has not been answered, write and tell us about it.

The instructions in this guide assume that your Confluence site uses the default theme. If you are using a custom theme, it is possible that the menu items and/or the look and feel will be different.

For more documentation please visit Confluence Documentation Home.
