Do you want to create outstanding Confluence pages, but you're not sure where to start?

Let's face it: we've all been there. So, what can you do?

Ultimately, you have two options:
  1. Spend precious hours (that you'll never get back) figuring out how to lay out a page in Confluence
  2. Save yourself the pain by using a ready-made Confluence template

If you decide to go with option 1, you might want to bookmark this blog somewhere handy for later! But if option 2 is more your style, you've come to the right place.

In this post, we'll explore the templates available, where to find them, and how you can use them to bring your pages to life.

Ready to get started? Let's dive in.

Free Confluence templates from Atlassian

Atlassian offers more than 70 free page templates. You can use them to create everything from a status page to a project plan to a one-pager on your company's annual report.

There is literally a template for everything and anything you want to create. And you won’t be scratching your head trying to figure out how to use them as each template comes with easy-to-follow instructions on how to put them into action.
However, there's one caveat…

The downside to Atlassian's templates

Although Atlassian's Confluence templates do the job, they are pretty basic. Take this team page as a prime example.

In reality, many of Atlassian's page templates follow a standard format and layout, which is great for consistency, but not so great for creating something eye-catching that will engage users. So, if you want your pages to pop, you need to step it up a gear or two!
