    A Smart Questions and Answers topic page

    Alternative community style topic page

    A question and its answers

    A topic page (for example "Quality management questions") holds the Smart QA overview macro. It allows to ask new questions and search, filter and sort existing questions in that topic.

    The new community style is an alternative layout of the topic page.

    Each question has its own page. Confluence comments are "upgraded" to answers by elements allowing to vote an answer upwards (or downwards if activated) and to accept an answer in case you are the owner of the question.

    More details

    Smart Questions and Answers brings questions and answers functionality to Confluence. It is based on existing Confluence features: child-pages under a "topic"-page serve as questions, comments are "upgraded" to answers. The main features/benefits are:

    • Keep using all your macros in questions and answers
    • Use your own templates for questions
    • Limit the access to certain topics as usual

    We use this Plugin for our QM System as a medical device manufacture. Very user-friendly and flexible.

    We reviewed the 3 plugins and selected Simple QA because besides being the least expensive, it was also the one that was the most configurable and also the most actively being developed. After we installed it, users noticed something that was not optimal, so I contacted the developer, and 3 days later he released a new feature that fully answered our need. Highly recommended!!!

    Excellent plugin, functional and very easy to use. It is just what my team needs. In addition, the developer is so communicative and he implemented a feature which we needed really quickly. Now the plugin has a filter for non-accepted questions.

    Dear Dana, thank you for the very positive review. Would you mind submitting the improvement here. I might need some more details. Thank you Andreas

    Very simple and easy to configure and use free add-on. No need to buy expensive Q&A add-ons if this is not the main purpose of your Confluence! Great communication with the developer!

    Pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. This app is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your Atlassian product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. The app tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian product. For example, if you have a Confluence license for 500 users, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Atlassian product license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    This app does not have a Data Center approved version. Only apps meeting a set of performance requirements for large, clustered environments are approved for Data Center.

    However, while server apps are built for single-server deployments, many customers successfully install them in Data Center products. If you're using a Data Center product, Atlassian recommends you contact the vendor to determine compatibility at scale.

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app does not have a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Server license if you decide to install this app in a Data Center product.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for server apps?

    For server apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are available for server apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
