Custmizing the global dashboard in confluence


I want to show a customized layout for my dashboard.There is some issues with redirection plugin in our wiki.

So I included the required layout(page) in global layout.Everything goes fine.

I need a help about this

1.I wanted to change the name of "Dashboard" to some thing else

2.In the "navigation bar" I want to show "Edit ,Share , Add(page,Blog post,comment ,attachment) ,Tools" items.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Vijay, could you post the markup from the current modified file to this to allow people to assist using what is already in place?

In Global layout.I replaced the below content with #if ($mode == "dashboard") #parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm") #requireResourcesForContext("dashboard") #rssautodiscovery($action.rssDescriptor) #permitSearchEngines() <div class="dashboard-group left"> <div class="dashboard-item welcome-message"> $action.welcomeMessage </div> #dashboard_renderGlobalActions("dashboardActionsId", ["system.dashboard"] ) #foreach ($webPanel in $webInterfaceManager.getDisplayableWebPanels("atl.dashboard.left", {})) <div class="dashboard-item"> $!webPanel.getHtml($req.getParameterMap()) </div> #end </div>## left <div class="dashboard-group right"> $helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{recently-updated-dashboard:showProfilePic=true}") </div>## right #else Replaced the above with this #if ($mode == "dashboard") #parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm") #requireResourcesForContext("dashboard") #rssautodiscovery($action.rssDescriptor) #permitSearchEngines() $helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{include:blogecommunity:Gli Strumenti Web 2.0 per la Conoscenza Diffusa}") #else In place of "#parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm")" I added "#parse ("/decorators/includes/content-navigation.vm")" .But it is not showing all the menu list.
