    The workspace administrator or owner is responsible for maintaining the collaborative workspace’s welcome page.

Specifically, other users cannot add or move pagelets and can only delete pagelets configured as Opt-Dflt (optional-default).

    The workspace administrator or owner is responsible for maintaining the collaborative workspace’s welcome page. Other workspace participants have limited capabilities for customizing their workspace welcome page, unlike their portal homepage. Specifically, other users cannot move pagelets.

     

    Pagelets appearing under Left Column actually span the target frame in the workspace.  Pagelets appearing under Center Column appear in the left two-thirds of the target frame in the workspace. Pagelets appearing under Right Column appear in the right one-third of the target frame in the workspace.

     

    In this example, as the workspace administrator, you will change the layout of the welcome page by moving a pagelet to a different column and by removing a pagelet.
