Microsoft OneNote is a versatile software whose primary feature is creating digital notebooks. Features like automatic cloud synchronization, the ability to take notes on the spot or collaborative work makes OneNote a popular program for many users.

There are multiple possibilities to transfer pages from OneNote to your Confluence instance (Cloud, Server or Data Center). For example, you could first export the OneNote files to Word and then import them back into Confluence.
Submitting help requests via email is great for customers. It’s easy, everybody knows how to use email and nobody wants to sign up for some extra system just to ask a quick question.
