How do you set the default dashboard for a project?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring dashboards

In the intro of this article, it says "Each project has a default dashboard". However, I can not find anywhere in the system to set the default dashboard for a project. And the user documentation does not seem to cover it either? Can anyone help?

Hi Steve.

There´s no such thing as default dashboard for a project. Documentation is fuzzy, it says "Each project has a default dashboard, or you can create a personal dashboard and add gadgets to keep track of assignments and issues you're working on"

So, you can have a dashboard and use it as a default (asking the rest of the project team set it as favorite), but there is no way to set it as default as a feature.

Yes, that is very poorly worded.  By "default dashboard", they were actually trying to say "the project information / header", which is absolutely not a "dashboard" in the sense of the word used everywhere else!

So is it just not possible to have user-specific default dashboards on the home page? Will it always start with the System Dashboard?

No, it'll start with the dashboard the user selects.

Really? And where I can set this configuration?

What configuration?  There's nothing to configure here.

Where can you set your default dashbourd?

At the moment Jira starts with your last clicked dashboard. You don´t have a possibility to set your own dashboard.

You don't, as we already discussed above.
