Using Confluence with RefinedTheme to Plan for Atlassian Summit

August 16, 2018

With the Atlassian Summit around the corner we prepared an event planning site using RefinedTheme for Confluence and in particular Sites to showcase how simple it is to create a visual and engaging site.

Confluence need not be limited to one use case. With RefinedTheme for Confluence, the potential number of use cases in the one Confluence multiplies. What’s more, you could choose to have your technical documentation, social intranet and event planning within the one Confluence using RefinedTheme’s sites, like we show you below.

As the Atlassian Summit is very on-theme (pun intended) our demo company, Reel Studios created an Atlassian Summit Event Collaboration Site in Confluence Server using RefinedTheme. This site is connected to an Atlassian Summit Event Services Site in Jira Service Desk using RefinedTheme. In this (fake) case study, Reel Studios is in collaboration with Atlassian to plan the Atlassian Summit 2018.

In this preview you will see how the Atlassian Summit Planning Site quick links to the Atlassian Summit Service Desk.

 

How to build the Confluence Atlassian Summit Planning Site?

Simple! In 5 steps:

1. Add the Atlassian Summit 2018 as a Site in the Site Builder.

2. Create relevant categories to sit in the top navigation menu.

In this case, Guests, Sponsors, Event Services and Planning.

3. Add the relevant spaces to those categories.

The site structure can be mapped in the site builder like you see below. A hot tip is to use permissions to define who can see this site and which categories.

5. Add layout and content modules to the Atlassian Summit Category Homes.

Include your quick link to the Atlassian Summit Jira Service Desk.

Hit Save! Done.

Adding sites to your Confluence instance is simple using RefinedTheme for Confluence. Why limit yourself to the one use case!
