Six months ago we gave you Confluence Blueprints – ready-made solutions to common business problems in the workplace. It started with blueprints for meeting notes, product requirements, and file lists. Then, we added blueprints for decisions and shared links, as well as how-to and troubleshooting articles for teams using Confluence as a knowledge base.
