==My home==
 
My home is a customisable "dashboard" page for providing users with links to their courses and activities within them, such as unread forum posts and upcoming assignments.
 
 
 
My home usually has the [[Course overview block]] in the central column. Users can customize their My home page and add and remove blocks by clicking the 'Customise this page' button.

The navigation block includes a My home link directly above or below the Site home link. Once a regular user is logged in, the My courses link will also take them to their My home page.
 
 
 
==Default home page==
 
 
 
 
 
Users with the Site administrator role cannot set My home as their default home page.
 
 
 
==Setting the default My home page for new users==
 
 
 
An administrator or manager (or other user with the capability [[Capabilities/moodle/my:configsyspages|moodle/my:configsyspages]]) can set which content (course overview, calendar, blocks) appears on the My home page for new users as follows:
 
 
 
 
 
# Select the required blocks from the "Add a block" drop-down menu. [[Block settings|Configure]] each block as desired
 
# Reposition blocks using the arrow icons in the block headers
 
 
 
==Adding a block to the My home page for all users==
 
 
 
An administrator can add a new block to the My home page for all existing users (not only new users) as follows:
 
 
 
# Turn editing on for the front page
 
# Add the block to the front page
 
# Edit where the block appears and set the page contexts to 'Display throughout the entire site'
 
# Go to your My home page and again edit where the block appears and set 'Display on page types' to 'My home page'
 
 
 
==Preventing users from customizing their My home page==
 
 
 
By default, users can customize their My home page and add blocks. An admin can prevent this as follows:
 
 
 
# Go to ''Administration > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles''
 
# Edit the authenticated user role and untick the [[Capabilities/moodle/my:manageblocks|Manage My home page blocks capability]]
 
 
 
==My Moodle capabilities==
 
 
 
* [[Capabilities/moodle/my:manageblocks|Manage My home page blocks]] (see above)
 
* [[Capabilities/moodle/my:configsyspages|Configure system templates for My home pages]]
 
 
 
In addition, all blocks which may be added to a My home page have a ''myaddinstance'' capability (e.g. [[Capabilities/block/comments:myaddinstance|block/comments:myaddinstance]]) for controlling whether a user with a particular role can add the block.
 
 
 
==Preventing users from adding a block to their My home page==
 
 
 
By default, users can add many blocks to their My home page. An admin can prevent them from adding a particular block, such as the [[Online users block]], as follows:
 
 
 
# Go to ''Administration > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles''
 
# Edit the authenticated user role and untick the [[Capabilities/block/online users:myaddinstance|Add a new online users block to the My home page capability]]
 
 
 
==Blocks not available on My home==
 
 
 
The following blocks may not be added to a user's My home page (because it wouldn't make sense):
 
 
 
*[[Course completion status block]]
 
*[[Course/site summary block]]
 
*[[Self completion block]]
