Configuring the Home page administrator

Create an administrator for Home page so that you can make changes to the application such as adding and removing widgets.

Before you begin

HCL Connections administrators must be dedicated users. Their only purpose should be application administration.

About this task

Only a Home page administrator can add, remove, enable, or disable widgets on the Home page. For more information, see the Administering the Home page from the user interface topic.
Note: You can also create global administrators for any of the applications, for the purpose of managing content. For more information, see the Administering application content topic.
