5. Introduction/Dashboard

Once your verification is complete, you will be redirected to the dashboard.

The dashboard consists of the most frequently used widgets a user might need, all in one place. Let’s have a look at each one of these widgets.


The entire platform is navigable from the left side menu. You can navigate to any page of the platform from this menu.

Character balance widget

The character balance widget shows you your remaining characters while at the same time providing a direct way to top up your character balance.

Notification center

By clicking on the notifications icon, you will see 3 types of messages:
• warnings about the platform e.g. scheduled platform unavailability due to maintenance
• errors e.g. unexpected malfunction of the platform and
• success messages e.g. the system is back online

New Project

You can start a new project directly from the dashboard, all you have to do is click on the “New Project” button.


The dashboard also gives you access to all your projects. You can see all the available info for each project. Additionally, by clicking on the button you will be redirected to that project’s details screen.
