Collaborative web-based diagrams

The Gliffy plugin allows you to easily create professional-quality flowcharts and diagrams, right in your Confluence pages.

At Atlassian, our Human Resources department used this tool to map out our recruitment process. This diagram is embedded in a Confluence page in the team's space where employees involved in the recruitment process can quickly understand what the next step is. For example, what step comes after the initial interview, and who is responsible for that step.

How to add a Diagram to a Confluence page
  1. Hover your cursor over the Add menu on any Confluence page
  2. Select Gliffy Diagram
  3. Enter a name for your diagram
  4. Use the Gliffy Web-based editor to complete your diagram
  5. Once you've completed your diagram, select Save and Close from the File menu in the top-left of the Gliffy editor

Ever heard the saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words'? Using the Balsamiq Mockups Plugin you can create and visualise mockups of diagrams for proposed layouts of website content, new features, and much more, right within Confluence.

  • Our 'Marketing Team' use Balsamiq to create mockups of pages for our website in Confluence. The mockups are then given to our 'Web Team' to implement.
How to add a Mockup to an existing page
  1. Hover your cursor over the Add menu on any Confluence page
  2. Select UI Mockup
  3. Use the Balsamiq Web-based editor to complete your mockup
  4. Once you've completed your mockup, select Save and Close from the Mockup menu in the top-left of the Balsamiq editor
