Can I change back to the old dashboard in Confluence after the upgrade from 5.6.3 to 5.1.0?

My users want to see the spaces they have access to. I the previous version, they would just click on the Confluence logo. Now they have to click on the spaces drop down, and then it just shows them the Recent Spaces. How can I fix that?

Dear David,

 Please check whether the landing page of the Confluence is changed or not.

To check the landing page go to the Confluence Administrator -> Further Configuration

Over there Site Homepage option is available

Check whether this option is Dashboard or any other space key. If not change it to Dashboard

Hope this works for you.


Also you can see your dashboard by http://<Confluence-URL>/dashboard.action



The Site Homepage is already set to Dashboard.

Click the Give Me the Old Dashboard button.



And that button is where?

Click on Confluence Logo,you will jump on Space

over there on the bottom of left side you can see the Switch Dashboard button, you can select old dashboard over there.
