In Confluence, you can define only one global homepage. The Homepage Redirect app takes it one step further: Administrators can assign unique homepages to several individual user groups. As soon as user access Confluence, they are redirected to a homepage that was set up for their user group.
The destination of the redirect can be a page, a blogpost or a space homepage. If the defined page has a pre-defined design, the page will be displayed exactly in that way. This makes the Homepage Redirect app most valuable to all customers with tailored Confluence color schemes and/or third-party skins and themes.
The Homepage Redirect app works great in combination with our Enterprise Theme app.
