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