Confluence has been upgraded! is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

Confluence is a simple, powerful wiki that allows groups to quickly share information and store it in one hierarchical space. Any user can add or delete information, and there are options that allow all changes made to be visible to all users so that revisions are easy to track. For this reason, it is an excellent way to collaborate. A Confluence page can contain images, videos, attachments, charts, links, and more. Many of these features are easily added through the use of macros.

Confluence is a good tool to use if you want to: 

  • Work together with a team to write and revise documents
  • Work on a project with people in different physical locations
  • Store information or documentation in one easily accessed place
  • Control who has access to your information

Note that Confluence is incompatible with Internet Explorer. Recommended browsers are Firefox and Safari.
