You can customise the Confluence dashboard to provide access to the content on the site that is most relevant to you. The options described on this page will change your own personal dashboard, but will not affect the dashboard that other people see.

If you have System Administrator permissions, you can change the global dashboard, as seen by all Confluence users. See the administrator's guide to customising the dashboard.

Displaying your favourite spaces

Mark some spaces as favourites. You can now choose the Spaces tab on the dashboard to see a list of your favourite spaces. You can also choose the Favourite Spaces tab at the top right of the dashboard to see recently updated content from just your favourite spaces.

Categorising your spaces

To help keep Confluence spaces organised, you can label spaces with different space categories. See Using Labels to Categorise Spaces. Space categories are used to group related spaces.

For example, you might want to group spaces on your Confluence site by applying the following space categories to the relevant spaces:

  • 'design' (for spaces relevant to a design team), and
  • 'development' (for spaces relevant to a development team).

If a subset of these spaces is relevant to both teams, apply both the 'design' and 'development' categories to each of these spaces to make the spaces appear in both groups.

Once you have added space categories, you can choose the Space Categories tab at the top right of the dashboard and select a category from the drop-down menu to display only spaces belonging to that category.
