frevvo for Confluence – Part 1. What is it?

confluence_rgb_blueAtlassian’s Confluence is a wiki used by 1000s of companies to connect people with the content and co-workers they need to get their jobs done, faster. Confluence has an intuitive, rich-text editor that makes it easy for anyone to edit pages and create content. Works great for relatively unstructured content.

But, a big part of people’s day-to-day work is structured content – routine time sheets, job applications, expense reports, vacation requests, purchase requisitions, sales orders, employee on-boarding, patient referrals and the like. These are just forms (often paper or PDF or Excel) that are filled out every day and routed around to others for signatures, comments and approvals (email or hand-delivery).

frevvo is fully integrated with Confluence and employees can collaborate efficiently on their day-to-day tasks in the same, familiar environment.

It’s hard to do this in Confluence. Consider a simple Vacation Request. You can’t just create a new Confluence page because you want to take next week off and then expect your supervisor to Edit it and approve or comment back.

That’s where frevvo comes in. We provide an Add-On for Confluence that lets you add forms, workflows and the associated task lists to Confluence. Users then simply logon to Confluence, go to the Vacation Request page, fill out the form that’s embedded on that page and Submit. frevvo will route as required, send notifications to the appropriate people and remind them if necessary. When the next person in the workflow needs to act on the request, he/she can approve/comment/reject directly in Confluence.

Instead of wasting time chasing signatures, let your people focus on serving customers, students & patients.
