How to reset the ‘Welcome’-flag for selected or all users

CAT Features

Problem Description

When visiting the Homepage module in Connections, users are forwarded to the ‘Welcome’-page (‘Getting Started’) by default. There, they can set a property so that the ‘Welcome’ page isn’t the first page anymore when calling the Homepage module. When new, important information is displayed on the ‘Welcome’-page, all users should be forced to view this page again.

Solution with Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT)

Navigate to User Management – By User. There, you can either reset the welcome flag for all users by clicking “Reset Welcome Flag for All Users”, or select a list of users for which to reset the flags individually.

For individual users, use the filter to filter for them, select them in the result list, and then use “Reset Welcome Flag for Selected Users”. A confirmation popup summarizes the changes and allows you to enter a comment. All changes, comments, and who made them, are logged by the CAT application.
