Getting started on Confluence Server

 


Open the Team Files app

You can install the Team Files app from the Atlassian Marketplace, then open it by clicking the Team Files link on Confluence’s sidebar, and it's ready to use.


Connect your first folder

You don't need to create an account to use the app. The only thing required is to connect at least one folder to the Confluence Space so that you can start collaborating with your team and build your single source of truth.

If there's already a folder connected when you first open the app, that means someone in your team already shared a folder, and you can use that one or add more, following the same steps.

Step 1: Click the "Connect folder" button

Step 2: Select the storage place where the folder you want to connect is and authenticate

You can connect a folder stored in SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, Egnyte, or an FTP Server.

You can connect more places later from the file manager. Learn more

Step 3: Navigate to where the folder you want to share with your team is

SharePoint tip: If you can’t see the site where your folder is, you can use the “Find site” button and enter your SharePoint address. More info

Step 4: Select the folder you want to connect

Use the checkbox to select the folder you want to connect to. 

We recommend connecting a folder where you and your team already store your documents, but you can also start with a new one by clicking the "New folder" button.

Tip: You can select multiple folders.

Step 5: Select permissions (optional)

Click the "Permissions" tab. By default, any folder you connect will be visible and editable by your team. You can block edit options and downloads.

For more information, check the permissions page.

Step 6: Click the "Connect" button

All done. You're ready to use the app. Learn more about the file manager, how to edit documents or attach files and folders to your pages.
