Too often content with important information is stuffed into one page, forcing the reader to scan and scroll in an effort to look for the information relevant to his or her interests.

It can become a bit of a slog and sometimes the content becomes one huge blurry mess and it becomes even more difficult to locate the information you're seeking.

For example, does this type of page look familiar to you?

If you're in Sales, that's great. Your relevant information is right there at the top. No problem.

But what if you're Farah, the Graphics guru? You're forced to scroll down the page just to see your deadlines and this can be a hassle, especially when there are multiple projects to juggle a day.

This sort of information clutter can be fixed with the use of tabs.

So here's a great Confluence tip: Confluence's editor doesn't come with the tabs feature built in. That's where ServiceRocket's Composition add-on can save the day. One of Composition's major features allow users to easily create tabs for them to organize their information neatly.

Let's take a look at how Composition's tabs can fix this:

How's that? Content is much better organized and it's far more convenient for the users to access their relevant information.

This is but a minor example of the power that Composition can give to your content. Composition also allows you to create cloaked content as well as floating content to give your pages that little extra push to make them better. Not just for you, but for your page's readers too.

To try out a demo, check out Composition on the Atlassian Marketplace.
