The Dashboard is a good place to start branding and customizations.
The default Confluence Dashboard shows as:

  • Welcome Message

  • Get Started section

  • Lists for:

    • Spaces

    • Pages

    • Network

  • Recent Updates for:

    • Popular

    • All Updates

    • Favorite Spaces

    • Network

For ThemeBuilder skins to be used on the Dashboard, or in other global areas (such as SearchProfiles and Space Administration), the Site Theme in Confluence Administration > Look and Feel > Themes must be set to ThemeBuilder.

If you want to remove the Get Started section, find and remove the macro from the Dashboard panel in the Skin Editor.

  1. In the Skin Editor, click the Pencil icon next to the Dashboard Panel ID.

  2. A pop-up panel editor shows the panel’s content.

  3. Find the Panel Element with the name page.dashboard.actions and remove the whole macro.

    <ac:macro ac:name="panel-element">
  4. Click Apply to save your changes.

  5. Open a new browser tab or window and navigate to the Confluence Dashboard. The Dashboard section Get Started no longer appears.
