Hi, All,

I find out the solution to remove dashboard recent activity.

Go to Confluence Admin > Look & Feel > Layouts -> Global Layout

delete the code

<div class="dashboard-group right wiki-content">
</div>## right

It's work for me.

You can create a new space and use the new space as your landing page for all users. This will allow you to be able to configure a lot more within the page then the default dashboard. Upon creating your new space you can elect to NOT use the recently activity list.

Here is how to change you landing page:

(This is just one of many options but allows for a lot of felxability)

Hi, Stephen,

Using Space as Site Homepage is a good solution. But the layout of space as dashboard is not match my requirement.

Thanks your suggestion.

Alternatively, you could edit the Global Layout of Confluence. I found no good documentation for doing so (so I coudn't paste a link), but you can find the global layouts here: Confluence Admin > Look & Feel > Layouts.

For major changes you'll need some knowledge on Velocity, but just removing the recent activity macro shouldn't be too difficult.
I recommend not to directly change your live Confluence, but to do the changes in a test installation of Confluence. Then, as soon as you're satisfied, apply the changes to the live system.
