Posted by Gretchen Pawloski with Connie Blaszczyk on July 13, 2020

Collaboration is front and center in the digital workplace, and Confluence is the way to connect teams with the information they need. But as projects grow more complex, sprawl sets in. Text-heavy pages begin to lack focus. Vital information gets buried. Engagement slows, readers lose interest, retention flat lines. Projects suffer, as deadlines are missed. You start to think, “There’s got to be a better way…”
