      Description

      We would like to have :

      • Reusable sub page components (portlets) some provided by atlassian, some written by us ( We can't wait for you to do all the work , and neither can you
      • All portlets should be user editable - made of html + velocity a la roller
      • Flexible Interactive Page Layout - Similar to the JIRA dashboard
        some pre defined e.g Dashboard, Wiki, Space Home,...
      • Customisable Navigation - Both meta data driven , and static using a hand written nav portlet
      • Multiple built-in sub-page(portlet) types ( RSS Agg, Calendar , Free Form ) ( as mentioned above they should still be user editable, and be htnl+velocity based )

      Attached is a mockup of the portlet based dashboard .

          Adaptavist's Confluence Dashboards plugin allows you to create a customisable dashboard within Confluence. It allows you to put all your key information on a personalised, customisable page. Whether it be RSS feeds, Wiki pages, macros or OpenSocial Gadgets, they can all be added. You can then arrange the page however you want, and all changes will be remembered ready for when you next view it.

          @Gareth: It's just as they made that plugin with this very issue as it's requirement specification

          But sigh!:

          I have a hard time convincing my boss that he should pay licenses, however low cost, to 3-4 different companies just to keep "that damn documenation system" running. One larger sum would be easier to convince him to shell out.

          As a note: Wadyaknow... You should start a service making it possible to pay it all trough Atlassian. That way you could take a, errrrr, small fee for easing the business of doing busniess with the many builders of Confluence. It's just like them supermarkets, all got their own brands, all produced by the same manufacturers as independenty branded products. Evil... but very profitable.

          I'm not sure if this is the right issue to add my comment to, but we would really like to be able to edit the Confluence Global Dashboard for OnDemand users.

          A perplexed Cloud user. Confluence is a user-created content system, yet the Confluence dashboard is ugly, rigid, and essentially not user customizable. People have been asking for this obvious, reasonable and conceptually core feature, since 2003. How can this be?
