Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

For now, just a grab-bag of tips. If you link to or bookmark a page below, we recommend using the "tiny" URL found under the "..." button's "Link to this page..." option (like for this page). This way, if things get retitled or moved around, your URL will still work (which won't be the case if you use the default long version, like for this page).
