Switch Confluence Dashboard layout


I just upgrade our Confluence (on test-server) from 5.8 to Version 5.10.

I recognized the new Dasboard-layout. Pretty cool so far...

Than I switched back to the old layout (on the bottom-left), just because users will do that and than asking me how to get back...
I dind't find any button or configuration for that?

A colleaque logged in and he has the new dashboard so that should be an personal configuration I changed but I can change that anywhere?

How can we switch back to the new Dashboard if we clicked "return to the old dashboard"?

Hi Andre,

Follow the below steps reenable the new dashboard:

  1. Direct the affected user to <base_url>/users/darkfeatures.action
  2. At the bottom should be an entry for simple.dashboard.disabled
  3. Direct the affected user to click Remove
