Your Dashboard helps you manage your books and groups, and customise your Studio profile.
To get to it, click the My Dashboard button in the My Profile box in the Home view of Studio. Or click your own username on the Peopleview.
You can also reach your dashboard from anywhere in Studio by clicking on the three-line menu icon in the top-left corner and selecting My Dashboard.
Your dashboard contains sections for My Profile, My Books, My Groups, and My Recent Activity.
The My Profile section shows your user name, full name, and photo, if you've uploaded one.
To edit your profile, click the Settings button.
In the User settings box, you can edit your Email and Full name if either of those need to be corrected.
Below your full name is a text box where you can type in a description About yourself. You can click the Choose file button to upload a profile image from your computer, if you wish.
There is also a field for the Notification filter, which configures the email notifications you will receive. For example, entering a Studio user name prefixed with the @ symbol into this field will mean that all messages from that user will be forwarded to your account email address. Multiple @usernames should be separated with a comma.
Once you have made the changes you want, click the Save changes button.
The My Books section lists books you have created. If you are contributing to any books which are owned by other users, these will also be listed in this section, under the subheading Participating Books.
You can switch between grid view and list view by clicking on the appropriate icon.
At the bottom of each book icon in My Books, there are symbols which are linked to (from left) Edit Book, View Book, Publish Book, and Delete Book. The Delete Book icon is only visible for books that you have created. Read about these functions in the chapters The Edit Interface and Deleting a Book.
If you click anywhere else on the book icon, including on its title, an overview of Book Details will be displayed.
The My Books section also contains buttons for CREATE NEW BOOK, IMPORT BOOK and INVITE.
The My Groups section lists any groups which you have created. If you have joined any groups owned by other users, these will be listed under the subheading Participating Groups.
You can click through to explore the groups listed, or click the CREATE NEW GROUP button to make a new group. A DELETE GROUP button is displayed next to groups which you own.
My Recent Activity
The My Recent Activity section lists the last few things you have done on Studio, such as creating a book, saving a chapter or joining a group. Anyone who follows you will be notified of each of these events.
