Why Whiteboards?

For distributed teams working in hybrid or remote environments, brainstorming together can be especially tricky. Our customers and own teams heavily relied on online whiteboards while working remotely because they enabled us to collaborate as if we were in the same room. But connecting that “pre-planning” work to “structured” work was not as smooth as we wished.

We saw an opportunity to create a deeply integrated experience for customers by connecting their unstructured whiteboard ideation to Jira and Confluence workflows. Our goal is to help teams move seamlessly across their Confluence pages, Jira issues, and whiteboards in a deeply connected way.

So with Confluence whiteboards, you have a new digital canvas to brainstorm freely, turn ideas into action, and visualize work. Read on to learn more.

Why have Whiteboards in Confluence?

So you may be wondering, why whiteboards in Confluence? Because great ideas come to life in Confluence! Since Confluence is your single source of truth where work gets done. It only makes sense to keep everything in one convenient place where everyone is already working and has the same access.
