    It would be nice to be able to have some measure of control over the new UI dashboard. For example, the ability to identify what the institutions default appearance is. Our administrators want it to use the recent activity view as default, but there is no option to change that default appearance away from the course blocks view. Alternatively, the ability to disable a view would allow the same thing in a more restrictive manner.


    Basically, when a new student signs in, we want them to see the old dashboard layout, not the new block format.


    Please Note: This is regarding the appearance of the dashboard in the new UI (as noted in the title and the first sentence).
