How to enable "Personalize this Page" option in dashboard pages in MOSS 2007


If you build a Report Center site in MOSS 2007, you'll notice that "Personalize this Page" option is missing from the Welcome <User Name> drop drop down on the top right of the page. This option is visible on most of the other pages in the team site.


Personalize this page



  1. Open the dashboard page you want to enable this option in notepad.
  2. For each web part zone in the dashboard page, update AllowPersonalization=”True”. It is set to False by default.
  3. If you want to only allow personalization of certain zones, then only change these for those zones.
