Homepage administration

A homepage is a ServiceNow interface that consists of navigational elements, functional controls, and system information. Responsive and non-responsive dashboards provide a similar interface with additional functionality.

When a user logs in to an instance, the default homepage defined for their role appears unless the user has switched to a different homepage. Administrators can customize several settings for homepages, including settings that control read or write access for any homepage and how homepages render.

Dashboards encapsulate homepage functionality. If dashboards are enabled, you can Set dashboards as your HomeSet dashboards as your Home.

Note: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0/Section 508 features do not work with homepages. These features only work with dashboards. To convert your homepages, see Create a dashboard version of a homepage.
Administrators can also perform the following actions for homepages.
  • Create new global homepages for all users or specific homepages for users with a specified role.
  • Specify an alternate login landing page that appears instead of a homepage.
  • Configure the homepage splash page, which is a lightweight page that loads before a homepage loads.
Note: If you are using responsive dashboards, you can convert your homepage to a dashboard. Advantages include new sharing functionality and easier layout management. See Create a dashboard version of a homepage. Navigate to System Definition > Plugins to activate the Responsive Dashboards plugin.
