I have the 'default home page' set to custom lightning page that I set using the lightning app builder. Yet my developer org loads onto the setup home. How can I make this org load on the actual home tab?

  • Did you activate that default home page? If yes did you activate that default home page for all profiles?

This is a per-user setting each user can configure to their liking. Go to My Setup, Display & Layout, Customize My Pages. There, you can select the default tab to see when you log in, and check a box to change your default landing page to Setup. Uncheck the box and save your change, and when you next log in, you'll land on your preferred landing tab.

  • Does anyone know if this can be done via the metadata api? Commented Mar 17, 2022 at 16:07
  • @DanielFuller No, because it's not metadata in that sense. There are a number of settings in Personal Settings that have no corresponding field on the user object and cannot be set by any API.
