Homepage

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

The Homepage page in the General section of Looker's Admin menu lets admins configure a default homepage for their Looker instance. Looker admins can also set a homepage for a specific user or group with the landing_page user attribute.

Setting a default homepage for your instance

You can set the default homepage for your instance to the pre-built Looker homepage or to a URL within Looker. By default, Looker displays your organization's shared folders when users log in to Looker or navigate to the homepage:

To specify a different default homepage for your instance, select one of the following options on the Homepage page under Set a default homepage for your organization:

  • Looker's pre-built homepage: The pre-built Looker homepage shows your favorited and recently viewed content all on one page.
  • A URL within Looker: You can set the default homepage to a specific board, folder, or Markdown file (such as a README or document file in a project) by specifying a relative URL such as /browse/boards/2.

If you have configured group or user homepage settings with the landing_page user attribute, those settings will override the default homepage you have chosen for your instance. Users with group or user homepages will still be able to access a link to the instance-wide default homepage from the left navigation or Browse menu.

If the Enhanced Navigation Labs feature is enabled on your instance, users can access the homepage from the new enhanced left navigation panel.

Setting a homepage for a specific user or group

In addition to setting a homepage for your entire instance, you can configure homepage settings for specific users or groups with the landing_page user attribute.

You can assign a specific homepage to a user or to a group by setting the value of the landing_page user attribute to a relative URL within Looker. If you want to assign a specific homepage to multiple users, we recommend that you create a new group specifically for that homepage option.

Setting a homepage for a specific group overrides the default homepage for your instance for members of the group. Setting a user-specific homepage also overrides any group homepage settings as well as the default homepage.
