Where is the My Jira Home section on my profile?

According to Atlassian help, I should be able to select my home page using the My JIRA Home section of my profile. But there is no My JIRA Home section. Is this an admin setting somewhere? I'm our de-facto system administrator, so I would have access to change it if it were there.

We're on 6.1.

Your JIRA is too old to have it.  It's definitely not in 6.2 and it is in 6.4

But the link I posted is to the 6.1 documentation. Are you saying the documentation is wrong?

I am very sorry, I was thinking of something else. Your home should be customisable, but I'm actually thinking that the documentation is unclear. I think you've actually gone into your profile, so you're looking at things like your language settings and avatar? What they actually should say is the "profile dropdown". Go back to a normal Jira page (not your profile) and click on the down-arrow next to your profile picture. The options you have should appear in that menu. The current one will have a blob next to it. Click on another one to change it. The list is variable (I've got agile stuff, tempo, etc on the main Jira I use)

(wow my prose is dreadful today, far too many "actually" in there) Again, I'm really sorry I misunderstood the question. Hope the new version makes more sense (despite the actuallys)

Yes! Thank you. I was in my profile; I admit that I never really look at the dropdown list a whole lot. That fixed it.
