    You need to create a custom theme for that. See the docs for instructions:

    That theme needs only the addon.json file and you have to copy the applications/dashboard/views/default.master.tpl to your own themes subfolder /views

    THen edit this copy and search for <strong class="SiteTitle"><a href="{link path="/"}">{logo}</a></strong>, it should be line 10.
    Replace {link path="/"} with the desired link.
