About Spaces

Content in Confluence is organized into spaces. There are two types of spaces:

  • Global spaces are areas where you can post information with which you want groups of people to collaborate. These groups can be "everyone" or a "class" or some other predetermined list of participants. Global spaces are listed on the Dashboard.
  • Personal spaces belong to a specific user. Personal spaces are listed in the People Directory. They can be private or open, depending on how the owner sets them up. Every user can create a personal space.

Confluence treats each space as an independently managed wiki. What this means is that each space functions autonomously.  Each space:

  • Has its own pages, news, comments, bookmarks, and RSS feeds
  • Has its own access control settings which are set by the Space Administrator
  • Can be separately exported PDF, WORD, HTML or XML.
