Buttons and links are the standard forms of communication between the user and the system. In fact, they are vital in creating interactions and providing a good UX. After all, these features make it possible for users to move about, take action or make a decision with a single tap.

But that's not all, though! Adding a button to the page gives it a more eye-popping appeal since they usually have the highest emphasis on the web (or any other) page. But there's more to it than meets the eye. Buttons are one of the most effective ways to increase conversions, whether from one page to the next or to your chosen goal page. The same goes for Confluence pages. And this is precisely why it's crucial to include these features.
