How Web2Market Uses Talk – Advanced Inline Comments for Confluence

The reason we use Talk over the standard Confluence inline comments is to be able to restrict conversations so that clients cannot see private discussions.

George Jaros (Web 2 Market)

Web 2 Market designs, develops and hosts e-commerce and e-business web sites. They are a distributed team with clients from all over the world. Web 2 Market uses Confluence for many things. One of them is working on requirements and feature specifications. The team often discusses the documents. Some discussions are internal, others involve their customers.

Inline comments are perfect for that, because they let users have conversations in context. Confluence comes with inbuilt inline comments. However, Web 2 Market decided to extend their wiki with Talk – Advanced Inline Comments, an add-on that provides powerful inline comments you can use instead of the Confluence native feature. Let’s find out why Web 2 Market prefer Talk. Continue reading

Evaluation of Team Performance in Atlassian Confluence: Part 1

Atlassian is the leading supplier of applications for enterprises of any profile and scale. Their robust platforms - JIRA and Confluence - allow millions of teams worldwide to efficiently run processes, manage projects, develop the accessible knowledge bases, and keep track of team and personal tasks.

A lot of teams use Confluence for tracking generic tasks and JIRA for project specific tasks. And the main issue that you as a project manager may encounter is a necessity to have a single list showing the overall workload of your team members. When using native macros you can only get two separate task lists. This factor may negatively impact the process of interpreting this data and understanding who and what is doing at the moment.

This blog post will feature an efficient approach which you can use for tracking team tasks created in both JIRA and Confluence and further evaluate team performance. You will have to set up two add-ons from the Atlassian Marketplace:

  • TaskONE for Confluence combines tasks from both JIRA and Confluence and generates a single list of them. So you can quickly identify the workload of your teammates and work out a better project development plan.
  • Table Filter and Charts provides tools for filtering, aggregating and visualizing table data and task lists in particular. In this blog post we will show only filtration of team tasks, but in the next post we will show you the way to summarize tasks against individual employees and visualize this with dynamically updated charts.

So, it’s time to start the evaluation of the actual team load and performance!
