Four approaches to display galleries of pictures in Confluence

Atlassian Confluence has a lot of features for displaying different types of content on its pages, including images. If you need to add a picture to your page, you can do it in three different ways:

  • paste from your clipboard
  • insert it as a file
  • add a link from the web.

You can adjust the size of your picture (or select one of three pre-defined sizes) and apply some visual effects to highlight the image among the text paragraphs. But what if you need to write a blog post about cats with myriads of photos? Here you need some tool that will allow you to put images in some visual structure and make you page look more engaging.

Analysis of Page Metadata in Atlassian Confluence

Atlassian Confluence provides a rich set of capabilities for management of content. Their approach to collaborative editing, as well as extended ecosystem of add-ons, allow your team to quickly and easily achieve the defined objectives.

Those people who use Confluence extensively utilize different methods to categorize and structure pages for quick accessibility and easy navigation. Here’s page metadata can help you with this.

By default, you can use the native Page Properties macro which allows you to specify custom key/value pairs for specific content pages. This solution allows you to keep metadata within page content. The Page Properties Report macro further processes labels of pages with metadata and generates the index list of pages matching the defined criteria.

But it is not perfect. All the time you need to manually enter text values and there is high probability that you can misspell some word or enter something that will differ from the original value. And here you need a more data-consistent and comprehensive solution. Metadata for Confluence add-on from Communardo Software GmbH can become the tool that can help you with getting control over page metadata.

After expansion of content in your Confluence, one day you may want to get insight into its structure, and find out some criteria to classify or categorize it. And Table Filter and Charts add-on from StiltSoft can become a solution that will help you with content filtration, aggregation, and visualization.

Evaluation of Team Performance in Atlassian Confluence: Part 2

Last time we started evaluation of team performance on the basis of tasks stored both in JIRA and Confluence. To get the clear picture of work to be done, we used TaskONE for Confluence add-on. This solution allows you to combine tasks created in JIRA and Confluence, and outputs a single table listing all of them at once.

Table Filter and Charts add-on was chosen as a means for filtration, aggregation, and visualization of this table with tasks. In the first blog post, we applied several filtration criteria to get the list of tasks filtered by specific assignee, due date, and task type.

This time we are going to transform this information into a pivot table, and further visualize it with a dynamically updated chart. This will allow us to better see the work amount planned for each employee and distribute tasks among people who are not occupied at the moment.
