The Confluence Cloud for Microsoft Teams app lets your team:

  • Capture meeting notes as a group and use the power of Confluence to create action items and decisions directly within Teams.

  • Share meeting notes automatically via Teams chat after the meeting, so you can keep everyone in the loop.

  • Easily search within Teams for previously shared pages, so information isn’t ever lost.

  • Add a Confluence page to a Teams tab so you can easily reference and keep track of information.
