Everything these days seems tailor-made just for us, from our social media feeds to our evening Netflix binge-watching sessions. So, why should our Confluence workspace be any different?

And it’s not just about adding yet another fancy feature; it’s about total and indisputable necessity. Read on to find out why personalized content is the absolute king for modern teams, especially in the world of hybrid work. Plus, we’ll tell you all about our powered-up and redesigned Navigation Menu in the Cosmos – Intranet for Confluence app. And it’s not just an update; it’s an upgrade of cosmic proportions: a fully personalized and customized Confluence navigation experience tailored precisely to your unique needs.

To personalize or not to personalize?

Of course, at the end of the (work)day – you will be the judge of that. But if you ask us – absolutely. And here’s why.
First things first, let’s talk about hybrid teams. With people working from home, coffee shops, or wherever the Wi-Fi signal is strongest, creating a cozy yet easy-to-get-around yet fully informative yet serving-all-needs workspace is important. That’s personalization at work, our friends.

The personalization feature offers the best and most efficient solution to information overload. By delivering content to the target audience, personalized content ensures that employees are presented with the information they require when needed. It helps employees focus on what truly matters, enhancing their ability to contribute meaningfully to their tasks and projects. Moreover, by aligning content with a user’s role, expertise, and current projects, companies can enhance engagement and stimulate a proactive approach to problem-solving and decision-making.

Let’s now discuss the foundation of any team: productivity and a sense of appreciation. You know that moment when your favorite coffee shop barista knew your order by heart? It made your day, didn’t it? Well, personalization in shared workspaces can have a similar effect. When your workspace knows your preferences and anticipates your needs, it makes you feel valued and empowered. Personalized and customized Confluence workspaces can offer quick access to frequently used documents/pages/resources, tools, or apps, streamlining your workflow like a well-oiled machine. This saves time and gives your team a much-needed productivity boost. After all, who doesn’t want to feel seen and valued at work? Because, let’s not kid ourselves, it does feel nice.

And as mentioned earlier, there are lessons to be learned from the social media giants. Platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn started serving personalized content recently, and it’s not just because they want to make us feel special (although that’s a part of it). Personalization keeps us engaged, glued to our screens, and coming back for more. This tailored content keeps us hooked. So, if it works for social media, why not for your Confluence?
