The Formula: personal space + macros + =widgets = your own personal ‘dashboard’

Confluence has a great Global Dashboard that gives you an overview of the site’s most recent activity and access to all the spaces you have the permission to see. It’s the first page you see when you login and it gives you the flexibility to filter it’s content by your favourite spaces. Wouldn’t it be great if you could add some more personalised information to the Dashboard? Hell yeah! I’m going to show you how you can create your own personal ‘dashboard’ in a matter of minutes.

Thanks to the Macro Browser, Confluence users have a plethora of macros at their disposal. Display your tweets, embed your favourite RSS feed, list recent updates from the wiki, including your status updates, and keep abreast of all the blogs that are being published.

You can create a page that has it all…in less that five minutes. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it to you.
