Meet your dashboard

When you sign up for a Webflow account, you’ll be taken to your personal dashboard where you can start creating projects.

Meet the Webflow dashboard!
Welcome to your dashboard!

If you’re part of a team or multiple teams, you’ll have additional dashboards for each team. Team dashboards also show you the activity of your team members in the Team activity section.

In each of your team dashboards, you'll see that team's projects and the team activity.

Here, you can choose to create a blank project, where we can design and develop from scratch. Or, if you prefer, you can start with a template. Learn more about templates.

Organizing projects

When you have a number of projects in your dashboard, you can sort them using preset sort options, organize them in folders, and filter/search for them using the search bar.

Sorting projects

By default, your projects are sorted by date created. You can also sort them alphabetically or by last modified.

You can sort your projects in each dashboard and each project folder by date created, alphabetically or by last modified.

Deleting folders

Don’t worry, your projects are safe! When you delete a folder, all projects within that folder will be moved to All Projects.

The project thumbnails

Thumbnail images are automatically generated for your projects in your dashboard. They get updated each time you publish your project to your .webflow.io subdomain.

Resetting inaccurate project thumbnails

If your project's thumbnail image is inaccurate, unpublish your project from the .webflow.io subdomain and publish it again. Now, hard-refresh the dashboard to see the updated thumbnail.
