Just after some suggestions on a solution for this.
I have configured confluence so the site homepage is not the dashboard, but the homepage of a space. But I think it would be worthwhile for new users to have a one time welcome message in the form of a page or popup. Can anyone think of a way to acheive this?
Yes, you can create a welcome page as set it as the default page so users will see it when logging in Confluence.
