If you activate the new Profile Completion Assistant, whenever a user has not filled out all fields marked as required, a dialog will appear where these fields have to be filled.
Thus, you can ensure that all users' profiles have data for the fields that are most important to you or which are needed for your Confluence to function correctly, for example when landing pages are based on these fields.
Users are allowed to close the dialog without filling out the required fields, but it will reappear on each page load until the user's profile has been completed.
"Profile Updated" by Anonymous due to Confluence Synchronization
When Confluence synchronize against any external user management, all of the newly created and updated users will be displayed under the "All Updates" section of "Recently Updated" macro in Confluence dashboard.
Considering the amount of users Confluence will create or update from the synchronization, it would be better if it is excluded from "All Updates" section. Or at least, Confluence should provide the option to exclude these updates.
Since we have introduced complex filters for your custom landing pages, parentheses in filters are treated as logical characters. So your filter might be broken if you try to filter by attributes containing parentheses. A workaround would be using the wildcard '?' instead of a parenthesis.

We are working on a solution but until then the best workaround is to restart Confluence.
