Consider 4 Things Before Choosing a PDF Exporter for Confluence

Confluence is a leader in the content collaboration tool space, allowing entire organizations to access and contribute to information within a single centralized knowledge hub. Sometimes however, Confluence users need to export this documented knowledge as PDFs to fulfill business requirements. Here are four important factors to consider before choosing a Confluence PDF exporter.

ShipIt III: Attack of the Coders

Oops, we did it again – and we love it: Creating awesome stuff within 24 hours. Some of us were coding almost the whole night to make our ideas come to life. Here's how we spent our third, Atlassian-rules https://www.atlassian.com/company/about/shipit hackathon that took place in the K15t Software office. And, of course, we've got a winning team: congratulations to Eugen, Maximilian, and Tobias who have built and demoed an awesome multi-layer image map editor for Confluence!

One Page Template, Multiple Languages

Today, I'd like to share with you a little secret about Scroll Translations. It’s the Confluence add-on which lets you manage Confluence content in multiple languages within a single space. This makes it simple to add page translations. But how about page templates and blueprints? Does the same apply to them? The answer is yes. It's not only possible to create multilingual page templates – it’s easy. In this blogpost, I'll show you how to modify the troubleshooting blueprint (or any other page template) and make it speak in foreign tongues.

Context is King - Four Royal Tips on Providing Context-Sensitive Help in Confluence

A king would never walk to the library if he wanted to consult a book. Rather than climbing down from his throne, he’d tell one of his servants to find the desired volume and bring it to him, wherever it may be. Today, all users are treated like royalty in the sense that they have instant access to information of all kinds. Context-sensitive help does the job of the king’s servants – providing the required knowledge directly and conveniently, and sparing users the bother of interrupting their work to browse through the entire help library. Imagine that a user needs advice on which option in a dialog window to choose. Clicking the help button or pressing the F1 key pulls up the relevant help topic right away. To be truly useful, help content must be provided at the right time and in the right form. And when it comes to creating and distributing help resources, what could be better than Confluence, the collaborative, web-based knowledge platform? Here are four tips for providing context-sensitive online help fit for a king.

Search and Replace in Confluence

When creating and updating documentation, it is often necessary to search for and replace text fragments. If, for example, a product name changes, authors need to update every single occurrence within their documentation. What if there was a way to automate this process? Atlassian Confluence’s built-in editor features a handy search-and-replace tool. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to exchange strings on multiple pages, across spaces or throughout the entire collaboration platform – and it’s unlikely that such a feature will be added any time soon. Instead, Confluence’s product managers point us to the Atlassian Marketplace, where third-party developers can provide suitable add-ons. In this blog post, I’ll take a closer look at one solution – available for Confluence 5 and above – that will help you search and replace Confluence content like a pro.

Webinar - How CA Technologies Broke the Rules - The DocOps Approach to Agile Technical Content

On December 16, James Turcotte, SVP, Business Unit Executive of CA Technologies, gave a presentation on how Computer Associates keeps product documentation updated and improves turn-over time. In this presentation, James coined the term DocOps, describing it as the sibling of DevOps. Support agents, developers and, of course, technical communicators cooperate to deliver value to the customer. They do this by continuously improving documentation and knowledge management, even after release. We are delighted that our very own Scroll Versions enabled them to manage their content in Confluence.

Two weeks ago during the Atlassian Summit 2014 in San Jose, we announced that Atlassian technical writers are using Scroll Versions for their product documentation (read  full customer story https://www.k15t.com/blog/2014/09/customer-story-k15t-helps-atlassian-technical-writers-keep-pace-with-agile-development-teams). But not only that – tech writers Rachel Robins and Christine Burwinkle joined us at the Summit to explain to Summit attendees of how they are using Scroll Versions. If you could not make it to Summit (or missed out Rachel and Christine) we have now a video interview available here.
