For AppFox, a growing SaaS product vendor and Platinum Atlassian Marketplace Partner, quality documentation has been essential in empowering users to harness the full potential of their apps. But as their portfolio expanded, it became a challenge for AppFox to maintain a cohesive and user-friendly documentation system. That's when they turned to K15t's Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud.

The Challenge: Strain on Scaling Processes

Founded in 2017, AppFox's rapid growth led to disjointed documentation practices across their diverse product range. AppFox offers products for multiple platforms including Jira, Confluence, Trello, and Monday.com.

With so much information to manage, challenges started to creep in. The visibility of draft content, inconsistent styling, subpar search experiences, and lack of integration with their web domain posed significant hurdles for both the team and the users.

The Criteria: Finding a Comprehensive Solution

AppFox sought a solution that would tackle a number of specific pain points:

  1. Integration with Confluence: AppFox needed a solution that would work seamlessly with Confluence, a platform they already relied on. As avid users and advocates of the tool, moving away was simply not an option.

  2. Separation of Draft and Published Content: Maintaining the separation between draft and published content was crucial for their internal review process and delivering more accurate user-facing documentation.

  3. Enhanced Navigation: AppFox wanted to provide users with a smooth and intuitive navigation experience to quickly find the information they needed.

  4. Intuitive Interface: Efficiency was a priority; they needed a tool that would be user-friendly for their team without the need for extensive training.

  5. Reliability: To cater to their global customer base, AppFox required a tool that ensured 24/7 accessibility.

The Solution: Scroll Viewport for Confluence

AppFox's search led them to Scroll Viewport, a solution that aligned perfectly with their criteria. With Scroll Viewport, they found:

A Branded Help Center: Scroll Viewport enables AppFox to maintain a consistent brand identity throughout their documentation.

– Craig Willson, Head of Product Marketing at AppFox.

Analytics Integration: Scroll Viewport's integration with Google Analytics provides valuable insights into content performance and user behavior.
