We've been using Content Formatting Macros for Confluence for a while now to build out our knowledge bases and they've proven to be a valuable asset. The Tabs and Accordion macros are particularly useful for organising information, especially complex job descriptions. No more applicants getting lost in a labyrinth of text! One minor niggle, there can be some confusion when older versions of macros are superseded by newer ones. For instance, we had a bit of a snag when updating the buttons macro to the buttons group macro. However, creating buttons became a breeze once we got the hang of it. A little shout out to the live chat support, they were very reactive and addressed any bugs we encountered promptly.

Interactive banner breathes life into our presentations and, advanced expand macro, has significantly improved our content's structure, even within complex layouts like tabs and tables. The macros help enhance the user experience and aesthetic appeal of our documents, making this app a must-have for any confluence user looking to elevate their content.

As a product manager for cloud service that allows Unity and Unreal developers to work simultaneously in a project, online documentation is key to onboarding new users. Kolekti gives us the ability to display Confluence pages with some of the same page layout quality as standalone websites. Just the Cards and Tabs alone allow us to graphically navigate our users through the content and focus them on the game engine platform they are most interested in. I will say I wish the add-ons loaded faster on the end user side, but there are many factors to that.

As a Product Specialist for a Platinum Partner Sourcesense Ltd, good addons are essential to what we do. I have used this addon extensively across our Confluence sites and think this is a superb tool and makes a must have addition to any Confluence site. It offers customisable sections to really add colour and vibrancy to your pages - I am impressed with its ease of use and clean functionality. I highly recommend this addon to anyone looking to step up their confluence visualisation.

Really like this app. It has bought some much needed design to our confluence pages. Bringing them to life for the readers. Its been seamless from downloaded the app. I was quickly able to start using them and the in macro step by steps are so helpful in learning how to use each macro. Having an intro / demo call with Abi was excellent and she was able to go through some parts of it that wouldn't have realised was there - like adding your company colour pallet. I would highly recommend this app.

One of the best apps related to Content formatting. We are looking forward for more updates and exciting features as a part of Content Formatting Macros. We have multiple users who use a wide variety of information being stored in Confluence and keeping an organised and feel good factor, combining more macros within a single page - lets us give a compact and clear view of what information we want to look for. Thanks Abi/Ane for constantly supporting us!
