Looking for easy instructions or sample content to show how Confluence can be used as a organization-wide intranet. Seems like Zen should provide a solution for this.
Just wanted to add a couple of points:
The Intranet "Welcome" page is an example of a "landing" page -- we prefer them to the Dashboard, since they allow better leeway in structuring content for specific audiences (like mini- or topic-specific Dashboards). But the Confluence Dashboard is still there, and you can get to it via the gear menu in the Zen toolbar (by default, the Dashboard menu link is visible to Admins only, but you can make it visible to all users).
Once you've added a space via the Confluence Dashboard, you can "wire" it into the Intranet demo by editing one of the menus (there's a globally shared menu that you see on the Welcome page, and the "HR Hub" has its own menu, as an example of a department-level menu).
Instructions for editing a menu are here:
And here are a few tips for customizing the look and layout of the Zen Intranet menu specifically:
