Hi All,

I'm a first time poster, but I've been subscribed to this discussion list
for a few months now. A lot of the discussions that take place on here are
fun and interesting, so I'm very glad I discovered this group.

My company recently started migrating to Confluence. In recent months,
several members in our tech writing dept have teamed up to learn Confluence
and develop standards and best practices for various types of articles and
knowledge bases. I'm currently tasked with researching opportunities for
reusing content in Confluence.

So with that being said, would anyone on here have any basic tips or advice
about content re-use in particular with Confluence, such as re-use best
practices, what sort of content lends well to re-use, scenarios where
re-use can be applied, etc.? I greatly appreciate any input.
