A number of standard homepage views are included in the installation. The number and type of these homepage views depends on which applications you have installed, but they generally cover all the basic homepage elements you require. They are not customisable, but the usual filters and sorting tools are available.
Your other homepage views — My Homepage views — can be customised to display and quickly access information that is appropriate to how you use the application. By default there are four homepage views that you can define with different names and view options. A configuration key can change the number of views available in the application for all users. See Configuration for more details.
You can choose which page is displayed when you first log in from your list of homepage views and various Find pages. You can also set which of your homepages is displayed when you click Home.
