Write Together and Get Better

1 min read /

Writing your docs together with a teammate is a great way to improve your writing skills. With pair writing, you and a teammate give instant feedback on the content which helps you to produce content rapidly. Collaborative writing can feel clunky at first, like you're both trying to drive a car together, but with a little practice you'll see two heads are better than one.

There are a few ways that you can write your documentation together in Confluence:

  • Grab a room and a computer to write on a shared screen.
  • Grab a room and multiple computers and each write on your own screen. With collaborative editing, you can both view and work on the page at the same time.
  • Work in separate locations and video call with an app like Zoom. You can collaboratively write from anywhere.
