Introduction to Enlite

We're happy that you've chosen Enlite as your tool for authoring and publishing technical documentation.

This article describes what Enlite is, how to navigate the dashboard, which is the homepage of Enlite.

What Enlite is

Enlite is a collaborative solution for authoring and publishing technical documentation. Technically, it is based on Atlassian Confluence, but with an extensive range of modifications that make it perfectly suited to techdoc creation.

Some of Confluence's features have been stripped out in Enlite (because they are irrelevant to techdoc authoring) – however, a wide range of functionality has also been added, to give techdoc authors all the tools they need. We did this by integrating a range of Confluence add-ons, and overhauling the standard Confluence UI.

The Enlite dashboard

When you first log in, you'll find yourself on the dashboard – this is the hub of Enlite, and it provides you with information and updates that are important to you.

You can get to the dashboard from anywhere in Enlite by clicking the Enlite logo at the top-left of the screen.

You can navigate using the sidebar on the left of the screen:
