Give your site's landing page some personality by editing the site welcome message.
The site welcome message appears on the right hand side of the dashboard and is perfect for adding announcements, useful links, or a fun photo from your last office party or team outing.
You'll need Confluence administrator permissions to edit the site welcome message.
To edit the site welcome message:
Confluence administrators can either click the Edit link below the site welcome message on the dashboard, or:
Go to > Global Templates and Blueprints.
You can go back to the original welcome message at any time - choose Reset to Default next to the Default welcome message template.

You can allow people who are not Confluence administrators to edit the site welcome message by using the include Include Page macro to include content from elsewhere in your site, rather than adding content directly to the template.
To include content from a page in the site welcome message:
People with permission to edit the page will now be able to make changes at any time, and their changes will be visible on the dashboard as soon as the page is saved.
