Is there any way to change the default configuration for the Dashboard globally, or per user group?

I don't mind Sysadmins seeing the Blog & Tonic feed, but I don't want Members (who access the CP only to add calendar events) to see Blog & Tonic. It will just cause confusion for those users.


Have a look at One Dashboard which works nicely. I've used it to set each users Dashboard to show a collection of pre-defined Analytics widgets.

  • The way I interpret the description of One Dashboard is that it would only help me with new users. It doesn't sound like it would affect existing users. Jul 1 '15 at 16:49
  • I can verify that it will effect existing users as well. The next time a user visits their Dashboard, it'll populate with the pre-defined widgets.

  • I confirmed with the developer of One Dashboard that the current version works only on first login. It does not update on subsequent logins. Jul 3 '15 at 15:27
  • @PhilipJones have a look at github.com/james1238/duplicateuserdashboard

There is currently no native way to do this in Craft, although it's probably worth an addition to the feedback site.
