I thought I would share this in case anyone else was interested in knowing how to change the default landing page for all users (Jive 5.0.x). I found this info in the Jive Documentation.  All you need to do is set or create the system property named "skin.default.landingpage" to the page of your choice.

 

Here's a few examples:

 

  • To set the default landing page to the "Getting Started" space, set the property value to "/community/getting-started". This could be helpful in a new implementation where getting people familiar with the platform is most important.
  • To set the default landing page to each user's "What Matters: Activity" page, set the property value to "/activity".
  • To set the default landing page to each user's "What Matters: Communications" page, set the property value to "/communications".

 

I hope you find this useful.
