Amplify Your Document Management in Confluence

Teams using Confluence can now manage long content and documents in their server instances effectively. Scroll Documents for server is live, allowing users to manage a tree of Confluence pages as a single unit – a document!

As we've explored previously, working with longer content can be tricky in Confluence. For documents like employee manuals, multi-page contracts, project specifications, and the like, important management functionality has been lacking.

Scroll Documents steps in to fill this gap, empowering users to control versions, set workflow statuses, and delivering other critical tools for handling multi-page content.

Simplified Access to Confluence Content

Teams need to use documents of all kinds to get their work done. Bringing the power of Confluence to bear on this sort of content can modernize processes, simplifying them and making them more collaborative.

With Confluence and Scroll Documents, everyone has a single place to go for to find and discover content – a simple-to-use overview containing the most up-to-date content. It reduces information silos, and cuts down on the frustration of files created in different formats and buried in email inboxes or file shares.

Document Change Tracking and Version Control

When your content is spread over a tree of pages – the best practice for authoring longer content – you'll have to employ workarounds to track how it changes. Knowing what version of your content was published or shipped to a customer, or what's been archived or recorded as a milestone, is challenging.

Scroll Documents lets you save a version of a tree of pages at any time, recording its content and structure and enabling you to manage as many versions as necessary as a part of your document workflow.  

Easier Document Management

Content doesn't always fit nicely onto a single Confluence page. Designating an existing page tree as a document, or creating a new one from scratch, only takes a couple of clicks with Scroll Documents. And with a dedicated home for documents in Confluence, including tools to find, filter, and view metadata at a glance, managing this content is a snap. 

Robust Document Management Features

Flexible version control
