It is probably a good idea to reduce the amount of documents nobody is really interesting it to a number close to zero. Usually documents of type minutes and decisions fall into this despised category. But meetings may have an interesting outcome, decisions may be documented to help team members understand why certain options have been taken and why alternatives were rejected.

For these cases the project management set of doctypes provides blueprints.


The Doctypes for Project Management requires the projectdoc Toolbox to be installed. The projectdoc Toolbox has a commercial license.

The add-on also uses blueprints from the Core Doctypes for projectdoc (like Role or Stakeholder). This add-on is available on the Atlassian Marketplace for free.

Please install the following add-ons on your Atlassian Confluence server:

Doctypes for V-Modell®XT
Use products (templates) from the V-Modell®XT in your Confluence wiki as blueprints!
Doctypes for Agile Planning
Provides doctypes to collborate with your team. Run iterations and record discoveries that may be of interest at the end of the iteration or for even later reference. Quick notes are more easily added as records to the team's space than to the official documentation tree. Defer the talk to the documentation architect to the end of the iteration (if the discovery is still of interest).
Doctypes for Risk Management
Provides doctypes for documenting and tracking risks.
