Customers often tell us that Confluence is awesome for team collaboration but only so-so for document management (even though attachments are versioned and so on). In turn, while SharePoint offers some sort of wiki most customers only use it as better “file drive” and primarily want to benefit from all the document management capabilities it provides. This often leads to a situation where the gap in the integration of the two systems forms some sort of digital divide. But – to say it with the words of Apple Inc. – there’s an app for that!
Now let’s have a look how that would handle in real life.
When editing a confluence page and working with content a macro called “SharePoint List” can be used to display information from the remote system.While technically this could be any list we found out that mostly Document Libraries are used in this case, making up 85% of all lists (this is just a rough estimate that I could not prove if requested ). Just insert the macro and a dialogue will help you identify the relevant list (of any type) by either name, location (Site collection), or other relevant metadata. Have a look at the animation below to see how simple the process really is:
