What's Missing in Confluence?
Confluence is an easy-to-use tool for sharing unstructured data in the native Confluence environment.
However, as our users tell us, some tasks are difficult to do in Confluence:
Easily collecting and displaying structured data
Creating and enforcing consistency in how data is handled, accessed and presented
Capturing and delivering structured data across groups and teams
Scaffolding allows all this and more.
What is Scaffolding?
Scaffolding is a powerful add-on tool for Atlassian Confluence to help you manage structured data with editable forms and reusable linked templates. Scaffolding includes custom macros that capture, store and manage structured data on a Confluence page. The data can then be manipulated, evaluated or compiled into reports.
