Collaboration is front and center in the digital workplace, and Confluence is the way to connect teams with the information they need. But as projects grow more complex, sprawl sets in. Text-heavy pages begin to lack focus. Vital information gets buried. Engagement slows, readers lose interest, retention flat lines. Projects suffer, as deadlines are missed. You start to think, “There’s got to be a better way…”

It turns out that the more information you have, the more organized it needs to be. That’s why we created Composition Tabs for Confluence, a simple-to-use tool that takes the heavy lifting out of creating pages that are easy to read and maintain. With Composition Tabs, you can differentiate content for multiple audiences on one page by visually directing readers to the information that’s specific to them using powerful macros. And with design features like hero images, banners and callouts, your visually-rich pages will keep readers attention.

Composition Tabs gives your team the ability to create engaging pages faster, and update them as projects evolve. Here’s how Composition Tabs can add value to your Confluence pages.

Highly Customizable Tabs Create Better Formatting  

Composition Tabs for Confluence features a highly-customizable tab structure:

  • Vertical tabs: (top, bottom, left, right) make it easy to segment content by audience, timeline, subject matter, Jira issue, user role, team or any other grouping you may have. No more page scroll!
  • Sub-tabs: create content hierarchy and allow your audience to drill down into more detail while maintaining an organized look and feel.
  • Auto-rotate tabs: create a mini-slideshow that’s great for displaying news on a homepage, events, important reminders, etc.
