What is Confluence Cloud?
Confluence Cloud is a digital workspace that combines knowledge management, teamwork and a modern intranet.
The centralization of knowledge provides a level of transparency that makes internal and external communication as effective as possible. In this way, you can benefit from the collective knowledge of your team, make qualified decisions faster and turn efficient feedback loops.
Confluence offers open and well-connected structures for all teams to store sustainable knowledge directly in one place. As a flexible tool, Confluence can adapt to the needs of any company, offers scalable prices depending on company size and grows with your team.
Advantages of the Cloud version
If you choose Cloud as your hosting option, you can expect some advantages. In this case, Atlassian hosts the instance, so you don’t need servers, storage, or external maintenance from experts. Not only does this make Cloud extremely reliable, but the administration and handling of Cloud instances is simple and intuitive. Plus, because the Cloud-first strategy is key, you’ll be the first to benefit from new updates and features.
Depending on the number of users, Confluence Cloud has tiered prices, tariffs with different functions, and Confluence Cloud is completely free for up to 10 users. Smaller companies in particular benefit from this free plan at the beginning. And as the company eventually grows, so does the Confluence Cloud plan.
In Cloud, you can easily create dynamic content and enable your team to work together optimally. Confluence offers intuitive editing functions, numerous templates and inline comments. This allows you to leave your feedback quickly and easily without having to switch to the editor. The search function in Cloud learns and understands context, so you always find what you’re looking for. This further optimizes the clarity of the tool. And not only that, you can also integrate your Microsoft Team, Slack, or Dropbox in no time at all and expand the numerous possibilities. The many integrations with other Cloud tools is just another unbeatable argument for Confluence Cloud.

Innovations in the Cloud
With Confluence Cloud, you’re the first to benefit from the latest features and tool upgrades, so you’re always in for a surprise that surpasses Confluence’s capabilities every time. In the first quarter of this year, Atlassian announced numerous new functions. Users can look forward to more than 25 new templates that make their work in Confluence easier. You’ll now find many new ways to boost your personal productivity and remote team work among your templates. Use annual review templates, project kick-offs, daily stand-ups or status report templates for your weekly financial statements. Templates not only enable your employees to get started quickly with working with Confluence, they also guarantee that structures and content are consistent across teams.
Another new feature: Smart Links. In Jira, Trello and other tools, you can easily embed complete Confluence pages using smart links. This promotes the optimal synergy between Jira and Confluence even more. Thanks to Smart Links, authors can provide more context by linking to relevant content from Confluence. The embedded content gives readers an ideal overview without having to leave the page. This eliminates the need to click the link itself and places the information efficiently.
You can now also use this trick to create new pages: Simply enter the URL make.page in your browser bar and save a lot of valuable time with easy access via the bookmark function. And if you want to stay up to date when you’re on the go, Confluence Cloud is available as an app for iOS and Android. The new page outline in the mobile version gives users the ability to jump to headings and to the top and bottom of a page. With it, you can now quickly and easily access information from anywhere and easily find the most relevant pages. And these are probably not the only new features that Cloud users can look forward to this year.
As you can see, the arguments speak for themselves. Switch now!
