Wait, there’s more: new features

We’re continuing to add new features every day, based both on our planned roadmap and your feedback. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Share – Not sure of an answer, but know someone who might have it? Easily share any question just as you would a Confluence page using the Share button.
  • Accepted answers – Help future colleagues find the answer quickly by accepting the best response to your question.
  • Down-voting – Contrary to what your kindergarten teacher told you, sometimes there is such a thing as a wrong answer. Down-votes help separate the best answers from the misguided and mediocre.

  • User profile integration: Now your colleagues can see the topics in which you are an expert when visiting your profile on Confluence.
