The dashboard is the hub of your Confluence site, providing you with access to information and updates that are important to you. It's also the first thing your new recruits will see, so you need to make a good impression on this one.

You can go to the dashboard from anywhere in Confluence by choosing the site logo at the left of the Confluence header.

The dashboard is broken down into three sections:

  • The welcome message – This section provides a simple intro to new Confluence users. If you're a Confluence admin, you can customise the content to suit your purpose.
  • The activity stream – Want to see what's popular, or what's been updated in your favourite spaces? This section will show you that and more, with links to updated content.
  • Spaces, pages, and your network – See spaces in your Confluence site, and favourite spaces and pages if you have any.

Try clicking one of the spaces at the bottom-left of the dashboard, then return to the dashboard by clicking the site logo. Even when your shuttle is spinning out of control, the dashboard is there to orient you.

You'll discover more about the dashboard as you get to know Confluence, but, for now, let's move on to the space directory.
