Too often Confluence admins and their teams think that Content Lifecycle Management is something you do when you amassed so much content that you don't have any other option but to deal with it. Contrary to this, it starts right when the content is created, so it can follow it along its journey and remove it from the up-to-date contents when it's outdated, or notify the right stakeholders when it needs attention.
A Content Lifecycle Management solution added to Confluence saves time and money, as you save the manual labor monitoring and updating documents would require, while keeping your teams efficient.
Content Lifecycle Management solution for Confluence
In our webinar we introduced the Confluence app called Better Content Archiving as a solution for keeping Confluence content always up-to-date with content lifecycle rules.
First we looked at a definition of content lifecycle and why does it matter to every company that uses Confluence or any other content management system. Then we listed the different content lifecycle rules you can use with Better Content Archiving for Confluence and how those help you monitor your pages and spaces and report stale content. Finally, a simple demonstration made it clear how archiving happens and how you can browse or restore the archived content.
