Initial Screen (INITSCREEN)

If the ControlPoint Setting No Dashboard is set to True, ControlPoint Application Administrators can customize the content that displays when users log into ControlPoint or refresh their browsers by entering a web page url as the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Initial Screen.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

CP Setting Initial Screen

Init Screen Example

If you are using Chrome as your browser and the Content Security Policy (CSP) is enabled for the web page, ControlPoint will be unable to load the page content.

No Dashboard (NODASHBOARD)

By default, if you are using ControlPoint with SharePoint 2013 or 2016 (non-Native installation)whenever you log into ControlPoint or refresh your browser, the right pane displays a dashboard which includes statistics about your SharePoint as well as links to popular ControlPoint features.

Interface

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, choose to display the Metalogix ControlPoint Cafe site (which is the default page for SharePoint 2010 and 2007 Standard and all Native installations) instead, by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting No Dashboard from False to True.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.
