What is Confluence whiteboards?

Confluence whiteboards is the collaborative way for teams to turn ideas into action, faster than ever before. With your whiteboard inside Confluence, you can have everything in one place to see the whole picture of your work.

How can customers enable Confluence whiteboards?

Confluence whiteboards beta is now closed. Whiteboards will be generally available to all Confluence users in early 2024.

How much does Confluence whiteboards cost?

All Confluence whiteboards capabilities will be free for open beta customers who opted in until the product general availability is announced. Moving forward, there will be a mix of capabilities based on your Confluence edition.

Is Confluence whiteboards coming to Data Center?

Confluence whiteboards is a cloud-only offering, and there are currently no plans to bring Confluence whiteboards to Data Center. We will continue to investigate the opportunity and share plans if that changes.

How does Confluence whiteboards differ from other digital whiteboard tools?

Confluence whiteboards has fundamental whiteboard features like shapes, voting, timers, etc. We are not aiming to develop feature parity with other digital whiteboard tools. However, we are focused on helping teams turn ideas into action and visualize their work. Our deeper integration within the Atlassian suite will help you build a real single source of truth, with fewer tools, for a more economical price.

Do the Confluence compliance certifications cover the whiteboards feature?

Upon enabling this feature, Product Admins will be presented with beta terms & conditions that outline the current state of whiteboards. Currently, we are in Open Beta, meaning not all Confluence compliance certifications extend to whiteboards. However, we are actively working on achieving SOC 2, ISO 27001 and HIPAA compliance and expect to achieve compliance by approximately April 2024. Please ensure you read the beta terms & conditions before proceeding.
