Creating and redirecting to a Setup Wizard

Hi All,

I have created a custom VF page that guides a first-time user through the setup of our managed package.

My question is how do I force the user to go to the VF page before using the system, and then make this forced-redirect disappear once they have completed the setup? 

I've seen some hack on this forum from 2009, involving custom homepage component that redirects based on a custom field in the user object, but was wondering if meanwhile there has been a different way to do it?

Thanks

Hi Avimer, 

Salesforce has another feature called Visual Workflows which is extensively used to create Wizards, I belive it would be a better solution than coding in visualforce. 

See the documentation below,
