Discover Cosmos – Intranet for Confluence: New & Free Teamwork Universe

And just like that…the Big Bang got its Caelor sequel! A new, FREE intranet solution for Confluence – Cosmos rose triumphantly from the aftermath of Content Viz Base‘s spectacular burst of innovation.

What started as a powerful feature and addition to the Content Viz app evolved into a standalone solution for all your Confluence intranet needs. The driving force behind this huge blast of progress were our partners and customers, whose invaluable feedback during the closed Beta program served as the rocket fuel propelling us forward. And because we put our users first, we immediately acted on their suggestions.

Therefore, fellow Confluence users, we give you: Cosmos! All-in-one Confluence intranet solution and your teamwork universe.


But wait, aren’t intranets dead?

Fake news, everyone! While traditional intranets (content repositories only) are taking their last breath, those modern and employee-focused ones are very much alive and kicking.

As it happens, companies all around the world are getting more aware of how essential it is to help onboarding, bonding, and networking while also exchanging information and knowledge in an engaging way in hybrid teams.

Back in the day, keeping teams updated involved a lot of meetings, emails, and occasionally company-wide announcements, and synchronous communication was key to managing operations. But – you snooze, you lose – kind of approach to information sharing no longer works. And now that we’re all figuring out how to adapt to the asynchronous workplace style, we realize just how vital the dynamic and up-to-date company intranet is for keeping teams informed, connected, and motivated.

The time is now, Confluence workspace travelers. Grab your shiny workspace suits and get ready for a journey through the Cosmos intranet. 🚀


3… 2… 1… Liftoff! Explore Cosmos – Intranet for Confluence

So what makes Cosmos different from typical intranets? Well, this universe of knowledge and collaboration is all about people and putting your employees first. The app is designed to provide a dynamic, easy-to-set-up, and up-to-date space for networking, collaboration, and knowledge sharing.

With features such as Dashboard, Database, User profiles, People Network, Newsroom, and Space Station, Cosmos is a game-changer on the Atlassian Marketplace as it offers a complete (and free) solution for your Confluence intranet needs. All you have to do is install it and make it yours by syncing your users in the Database, broadcasting your company news, and enabling easy access to key resources on the Dashboard. And you’re all set to boost your team’s productivity and engagement at warp speed.

It also offers a solution to help team members reduce search time and avoid the tedious task of sifting through numerous Confluence pages by providing advanced filtering options.

Alright, it’s time to take a closer look at some of the Cosmos’ key features:



Think of it as your Cosmos spaceship info panel. Or, for those who prefer earthling lingo, a central hub to discover information, track collaborative activities, and gain insight into the company culture.

Once the Confluence admin sets it up, each employee will get an attractive intranet homepage displaying a number of different elements and widgets (news, people lists, countdown, poll, quick links, etc.)

All team members will receive a concise and captivating summary of all the current happenings within the company. This includes welcoming new starters, the latest news and updates, access to helpful resources, and mission-critical (and those less critical) tasks. Plus, the Cosmos dashboard can easily be embedded and seamlessly integrated into any Confluence page thanks to the Cosmos – Embed Dashboard macro.

Also, the Database is continuously updated with the information from User profiles, ensuring that the info is always relevant and up-to-date. And if you want to further customize it to better meet your employee directory needs, simply add a new column to the table and fill it out with the information that is relevant to you.
