Using sys_defaulthomepageurl to configure default page for initial login

Currently when new users login, they are not placed in their site folder. This usually causes some confusion. Is there a way to configure this desired behavior using sys_defaulthomepageurl? Page 148 of the Administration Manual v6.7 mentions the function of this property as: “Stores the fully qualified or relative URL of the first Rhythmyx page that appears after login for users who log in under this role. Required when you are using the default home page feature.”
