I've changed the PWA home page - how do I change it back

    Question

  • I've changed the home page in PWA from the page that shows you all the new tasks etc. to:

    ..../pwa/Project%20Detail%20Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx

    How do I change it back to the page it was originally?

  • Sorry, I'm just about out of ideas.  You could create a new page, add quick-launch links to it, add the Reminders web part, etc., then make it your home page (you know how to do that ;-) )

    Good luck!  Maybe someone here knows the easy way to recover.

  • Hi,

    You can set the URL of the home Link under Site Actions/Site Settings/Navigation/Navigation Editing and Sorting/Home/Edit

  • Hi Renke;

    Thanks for the help... but

    so far so good: I can change the home page: but... I can't find the page it was out the box. I can change to any page but I can't find the one where it lists the number of new tasks new approvals etc.

    How do I find that page?

    Here's what I see

  • Hi

    I think that's my problem - the default page is the PDP page - I can't find the page that lists the new tasks

    Here's how it is set up

  • Try looking in Site Settings > Site Welcome Page.  It should end with /[name of your instance].

    Example:  http://domain.com/PWA

  • Thanks Reid;

    however if I open up Site Settings and [ctrl +f] on 'Site Welcome Page nothing' is there

    I also tried doing this 'Reset Page to Site Definition Version' and either it doesn't work as I expected or I'm messing it up; as the default page still isn't the nice otb page with all the new tasks etc.

    Anyone else know how I can revert it back to the true default page

  • OK, it's called Welcome Page.  It is the first item in the Look and Feel section.  You shouldn't have to Ctrl-F to find it

  • I take it that it should be listed here: (but it isn't :( )

    This is perfect! - all I probably ever needed was the reminders web part; this has worked a treat. Thank you for your help. And I now know even more about creating these home pages than ever before.
