Midori’s Better Content Archiving for Confluence app is a market-leading solution for content lifecycle management (CLM) for Confluence. Content lifecycle management is typically an area that only large enterprises care about. We think that it’s a mistake. Most of the teams who introduce Confluence don’t care about managing what happens with the content, simply because there are no painful problems in the beginning. The chaos caused by outdated content and abandoned pages only starts to bite after a year or two of active Confluence usage. Teams only look for a solution when there is so much old content, it’s hard to find what you need and easy to confuse old versions of a document with the current one.
We all know this feeling from many aspects of ou lives: instead of preparation, we only look for help when there is a problem.
We at Midori advocate for preparation and believe that every team introducing Confluence, should introduce a content lifecycle management at the same time. Better Content Archiving brings all the tools that will help your team prepare and avoid the chaos of an overloaded Confluence or will help you clean up if it’s in trouble.
By designing your content lifecycle rules for expiration and usage tracking, your notification schedules and archiving workflow, you will be able to maintain Confluence as a lean and useful content collaboration system, save hours for your team members, and make sure that nothing gets in the way of productive work.
If you rely on Confluence in your daily work and more people adapt Confluence as their document collaboration hub, then you can avoid the issues of tomorrow by learning about content lifecycle management today. Your future self will be grateful.
