As I understand it, these will be SharePoint's "Wiki pages".
I need to understand more about how SP works, and I need to discuss all this with the guy who is setting everything up.
But it seems there's only "a guy" setting things up, so I'm afraid there's nothing too fancy here.

Jay

What sort of wiki are you using? Confluence has an "import word" feature that automatically creates pages for each section of a document. There are some quirks, but it works pretty well.

You can also import files in bulk from SP to Confluence by simply dragging and dropping them onto the Confluence attachments page. But that will only create attachments, not wiki pages.

Finally, Atlassian has a Confluence-Sharepoint connector <https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/SPCON/Confluence+SharePoint+Connector+Home>. But it looks like it only works if you want to keep both SP and Confluence going. Plus, it's pricey.

My (new!) employer has large numbers of documents used as guides
and references by customer service centers and other users.
They have decided to move them from their current repository to a
SharePoint site with Wiki pages.
I have a number of concerns, and want to understand some of the
abilities and limitations of that platform, and suitable
approaches to make this thing work as well as possible.

I think we'll have a combination of "throw existing docs int
position as quickly as possible" and "rebuild docs as appropriate
to break them into suitable topic-sized chunks".

The good news is - it shouldn't be boring!
