In today’s world, teams need a shared digital environment if they are to be productive. Sometimes we need to upload important documents (video interviews, presentations, training workshops) in Confluence and share all this relevant information with other teams or partners of our company. To avoid having data silos, our teams need a single source of truth. Many companies see the importance of a common information repository where team members or guest users collaborate easily without creating inefficiencies.
It is a headache for businesses to share data over emails or work with outdated information. Data silos reduce employee efficiency and waste company resources. According to Gartner, 70% of companies will implement new solutions to assist in employee productivity and as a result, save about 6.2 billion hours. The key to a successful digital workplace is the seamless flow of work across teams. The powerful app Sharepoint Connector for Confluence is an essential part of the productivity puzzle and it helps to bridge the gap between Confluence and Sharepoint/One Drive.

Use Case #1: Joint Marketing Content
Joint marketing with partners is an incremental process for companies nowadays. Confluence is a robust platform, but it is not a document repository. The most creative moments come when the brain is allowed to rest, and marketing specialists usually try to write articles in Microsoft Word/One Drive. They need to share them with other teams and partners. As some prefer working in Confluence while others are heavily relying on SharePoint, this situation often results in the creation of information silos. If they would like to adjust something on Word/OneDrive afterward, they should reupload it in Confluence or send it by mail. The SharePoint Connector for Confluence is breaking these silos down. It not only integrates SharePoint documents in Confluence but now also by embedding Confluence Cloud pages in SharePoint Online. Meanwhile, we can identify which user has written what, who has done the last modifications and these details are very important for a joint marketing process.
Use Case #2: Social Media Posts – Repurpose blog content as native social media posts
Establishing a well-structured content strategy for social media is a key goal for companies. Sometimes, Social Media Managers do not want to publish blog posts links on Linkedin. They would prefer having more engagements on social networks by publishing an extract from the blog post. To make this process easier, the marketing team accesses a wiki page in which many blog post links are embedded, and they can write very relevant and attractive texts on social networks. Not only that, but they can embed presentations, videos, and other documents from SharePoint/OneDrive to Confluence. It is as easy as wielding with a magic wand.
