I wish to remove the Get Started Gadget from the Global Confluence dashboard and make some other useful modifications. There are instructions to do so which require:
"To make modifications to the dashboard, modify the global template
/confluence/decorators/global.vmd or the layout at Confluence Admin > Layouts > Global Layout."
We have Atlassian OnDemand product. I am the admin for the tool set. I have searched through all of the admin functions and can not find Layouts. How can I edit the Confluence Global Dashboard to improve it for my user community?
You can not.
OnDemand does not allow for customisation of code (and also has a limited set of addons you can install).
Your choices are:
Your end users won't see the getting started steps (only admins). We're tracking this request to allow OD admins to hide the getting started steps for themselves at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-28255
What other modifications would you like to make to the dashboard? Something you can do in OnDemand is create a custom Confluence page with whatever content you'd like and set it as the site home page for all your users. (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Configuring+the+Site+Home+Page). That way your employees see this custom home page when they log in for the first time.
A. Primarily I want to list all of the new Site Spaces in the right panel. So the end users can use the dashboard as a TOC. I would then split this panel and have just the most recent activity for all pages listed.
B. I read about creating a custom Confluence page and use this as the landing page. This is what I will do.
