The company uses frevvo with Confluence on daily basis for a multitude of tasks from employee on-boarding to budget management to online ordering. frevvo’s Database Connector allows them to surface frevvo forms and workflows in Confluence that read/write data from their SQL database and easily create dynamic content.

frevvo integrates with our Confluence system as well as other systems without complex APIs. And the best part of all is that frevvo is very cost-effective and feature-rich compared to products that are many times the price.

[Video] frevvo + Confluence for collaboration

Customers use Atlassian’s Confluence to increase collaboration, reduce time spent in meetings and email. Many of them combine Confluence with frevvo to automate routine day-to-day tasks like vacation requests, purchase requisitions, sales orders, employee on-boarding, and patient referrals. 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).

Our infographics and other blog articles discuss how frevvo’s affordable, cloud-based workflow products work with Confluence and improve collaboration and business agility. We’ve also created a short (2 min) video below to show you the benefits of combining the two.

[Infographic] frevvo + Confluence

infograpihc_wireframe_frevvo_july2016

Atlassian’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. Customers use Confluence to increase collaboration, reduce time spent in meetings and email.

But, a big part of people’s day-to-day work is things like completing 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).

These routine tasks end up wasting a lot of time. From chasing down colleagues and bosses for signatures to misunderstood and poorly defined processes to lack of 24×7 access on all devices, these tasks can be an expensive proposition.

That’s where frevvo comes in. Check out this new infographic on how combining frevvo & Confluence can help solve real business problems quickly and effectively.

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 appropriate Confluence 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.

It’s as easy as that. It’s 2016! There’s simply no excuse for outdated, manual systems that cause delays, result in unhappy employees and wasted time and money.

frevvo for Confluence – Part 4. Create/Update Confluence Pages

In Part 3 of this series, we looked at how you can create a form or workflow and accumulate submissions on a Confluence page.

But, customers often want to create and update Confluence pages from frevvo forms for structured content. An example is an application to manage client contact information.

Let’s say you want to create a Confluence page for each client. The Confluence rich text editor is one way to manage these pages. But, it’s hard to keep the pages consistent, eliminate errors and enforce business constraints with the Confluence editor. That’s where frevvo comes in.

Instead of creating/updating these pages using Confluence’s editor, you can use a form. The form enforces structure, business rules, validation etc. When the form is submitted, frevvo will generate a Confluence page for the client; the page can be named using data from the form (e.g. client name).

frevvo can also generate an Edit link on the page. When clicked, it takes you back to the form pre-filled with the client data. You can edit the data and submit. frevvo will then update the client page with the updated data.

With Live Forms for Confluence, anyone can do it. See how easy it is in this 4.5m video.

frevvo for Confluence – Part 3. Collect data on a Confluence page

In Part 2 of this Series, we saw how to create a simple survey form in Confluence and view submission data or download it to MS Excel. But sometimes, people want to do more. They want to format the results as a table and add a graph, display the results in specific ways etc.

Confluence and its rich set of plugins is the ideal platform for this and with frevvo Live Forms you can now easily create forms [and even workflows] and collect submissions on a Confluence page. Then, use arbitrary macros to create tables, charts, Tab views etc. It’s a powerful way to leverage the unique capabilities of both platforms.

Watch the 3.5 min video below to see how.

frevvo for Confluence – Part 2. Simple forms/submissions.

Does your organization use Confluence for collaboration? If so, you can easily expand your Confluence-based Intranet so employees can do some of the common things organizations do like surveys and event registrations without needing a programmer every time.

Imagine that your marketing employees could create a Confluence page, add an event registration form to it, view the registrations in Confluence or download them to Excel. All by themselves without I.T. involvement, setup, databases or anything.

With Live Forms for Confluence, anyone can do it. See how easy it is in this video (less than 3 min).

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.
