How do I remove tabs from the dashboard?

On the dashboard menu for my Confluence site, all I want to be able to see is the list of spaces. I don't want a list of popular, recently updated of Favorited pages. Is there a way to remove that section, leaving only the welcome message and the Space list?


the only relevant page I could fine seemed to be referring to several removed features, and had a link to a page that wasn't there anymore.

Hi Spencer,

Refer this link for Confluence Dashboard Customization and removing tabs


That link goes to a page wherein the relevant section refers to a nonexistant feature, with a link to nonexistant pages.

But that is just for reference, in short to Disable the 'Popular' tab on the dashboard you need to go to "Manage Addon" --> Select System Plugin --> Search for "Dashboard Macros" then choose Manage plugin modules and disable the Popular Tab module.

Okay, did that, and it tells me every single one of those plugins cannot be modified

Ah you are using Confluence Cloud. There are few functionality which are restricted in Confluence Cloud like *System Administrator permissions*. You can refer this for restricted functionality - You can contact Atlassian Support and ask if they can disable these tabs
