Seven Reasons to Use Confluence for Technical Documentation

When technical writers meet at conferences, one of the very first questions is usually: “Which help authoring tool do you use to produce help content?” And that question is swiftly followed by “And which tool would you like to use instead?” At this point, most people within the techcomm community expect an answer like “FrameMaker”, “Flare” or a CMS. But when they ask Nils Bier, technical writer at K15t Software, he baffles them with his response. “We use Confluence, the enterprise wiki, combined with our latest Scroll add-ons. And as for the second question – Confluence is also my favorite tool for managing help content.” Let's find out why.

Customizing the Confluence sidebar and page navigation with Scroll Versions

Have you ever wondered whether you can display additional content (such as Atlassian's Confluence support docs) in the navigation sidebar and on each page? Well, I was wondering about this myself. And when I came upon the solution, I was quite surprised about where it was: in K15t Software’s support docs for the Scroll Versions http://www.k15t.com/display/VSN/Documentation theme. A prime example of RTFM (read the fantastic manuals)!

Confluence as DMS - Part 2: Attachment check-in/check-out with Arsenale Lockpoint

In my previous blogpost https://www.k15t.com/blog/2014/03/confluence-as-dms-editing-attachments-directly-with-goedit, I explained how GoEdit can be used to turn Atlassian Confluence from a premium collaboration tool into an easy-to-use document management system. But there was still one issue to resolve: How can you prevent users from editing attachments concurrently? In this blog post, we will look at another useful add-on that solves this dilemma and integrates seamlessly with GoEdit.

Six reasons why I use JIRA in my role as a technical writer

"JIRA? A bug-tracking tool? Why should I care?" That was my first reaction when I started working as a tech writer at K15t Software back in 2011. Now, over two years later, it is hard to imagine doing my job without it. Like me, increasing numbers of technical writers are happily using Atlassian Confluence to manage their technical documentation. That’s a very good thing – and it encourages us to keep improving our Scroll add-ons. In addition to Confluence, Atlassian has another product that’s highly popular among software developers: the issue-tracking tool JIRA that was its very first product. In this blog post, I'll show you how JIRA helps me in my day-to-day work as a technical writer.

Confluence as DMS: Editing attachments directly with GoEdit

Confluence is not a document management system (DMS). But many organizations use it for a huge range of purposes – even for sharing images, documents and other files. As Confluence is an extensible platform, let’s see how we can add missing DMS features to our favorite wiki. In this blog post, we will look at a nice attachment handling add-on for Confluence that allows us to edit attachments of any file type.
