I am looking for suggestions and best practices when it comes to spaces in Confluence.
I am not quite sure when it is best to create a new space? Often just sub-pages are created in other pages, resulting in huge not comprehensible spaces. Furthermore we do not allow the normal confluence-user to create spaces - only admins are allowed to do so.
I realized that it can be quite comfortable to have more smaller spaces instead of only a few huge spaces.
Spaces could be categorized and individual users could "feel home" in a few different spaces depending on which projects and tasks they are working on.
In our situation right now it feels that everyone just knows his/her "home space", which is not the personal space, but just a sub-page on a space in which he/she works most of the time.
We do not really use restricted pages/spaces that much as we try to keep everything very open - however it turns out that many add-ons allow some configuration on a space level.
What are your experiences, best-practices, and suggestions on this topic?
