Create a public Confluence space to share with employees

For many organizations, employees do not have Confluence accounts, and cannot see the knowledge base information available. With Confluence, you're able to make public spaces that can be searched within Simpplr. This allows easy access for everyone in your org.

The following Confluence Support article will walk you through creating public spaces. Keep in mind that anyone can view information on a public space, so be careful about what you decide to share.
