You can override the redirection after login in by changing the var login_handlers function in


Here, I am redirecting to the calendar view in appointments:

Keep in mind that this is for testing purposes only…You should integrate this functionality via the hooks method because you won’t be able to update erpnext if you change this file.

I have no idea…I ended up using localstorage to set the last_visited variable to whatever i wanted the redirection to be and then i threw an if statement on the login.js file (just because i didnt want the other sites i have on the same server to redirect to that).

I did this on


And i did this on the web.js file i’m using to customize my app (this runs on a separate app)

frappe.ready(function() {
	localStorage.last_visited = "/desk#List/Patient Appointment/Calendar";
	console.log("last visited: ",localStorage.last_visited);

This has been sufficiently dealt with by hooks boot session modification…

Simply create the page you wish to redirect to then edit your boot session home page to redirect to it for a given user/role via a method.
