By the request of one of our clients, we have made the complete homepage customizable. A portal admin can now choose to show the ‘favorites’ ‘start page’ and ‘workspaces’ widgets or not. There’s a new widget for ‘recently used’ reports, as this might be more convenient than ‘favorites’ for some users. Instead you can also add widgets with text/links/etc. if that is preferred.
Fig. 1 Home page is customizable by clicking the usual edit-icon bottom right, you can then remove/add various widgets.
