How do I prevent client's from seeing 'All Updates' change history on the home page?

I provide clients with a login user/pass. Each has their own space with documents I maintain. They have view authority only - they cannot add or edit pages.

How do I prevent them from seeing the changes made to those documents on the front page?

If you give them permission to see documents, they will be able to see them in the activity stream.

However there is a solution to you.

You may customize Confluence dashboard in order to manage content viewable by users.

Create a new dashboard, it can be any confluence page, viewable by anyone.

Then go to this link:

https://wiki.office/admin/editdecorator.action?decoratorName=decorators/global.vmd

look for something like that:

#if ($mode == "dashboard")
                #parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm")
                #requireResourcesForContext("dashboard")
                #rssautodiscovery($action.rssDescriptor)
                #permitSearchEngines()
            #else

and add line:

$helper.renderConfluenceMacro({include:MYSPACEKEY:Dashboard})

as a line before else

Remember to change MYSPACEKEY for you space key :}

You'll get something like this:

#if ($mode == "dashboard")
                #parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm")
                #requireResourcesForContext("dashboard")
                #rssautodiscovery($action.rssDescriptor)
                #permitSearchEngines()

                $helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{include:MYKEY:Dashboard}")

            #else

Doesn't work for on-demand. Thanks though.

Another problem is that users who arent' authorised to other projects can still see them by name. At the top of the screen there is a drop-down called 'projects'. Users who are not authorised to these can still see the list.

Any ideas how to address these problems?
