Use the Webflow Dashboard to access, create, and manage your sites.
Note: We're transitioning to Workspaces, and this lesson has been updated to reflect that change. Visit the Workspaces blog post to read more about these updates and changes.
From your Dashboard, you can access, create, and manage your sites.
In this lesson, you’ll learn:
When you sign up for a Webflow account, you’ll be taken to your first Starter Workspace where you can begin creating sites.
If you’re part of multiple Workspaces, you’ll have additional, separate Dashboards for each Workspace.
You can switch between your Workspace Dashboards from the Workspace dropdown menu.
From the Workspace dropdown menu, you can even create a new Workspace. Learn more about how to create a new Workspace.
Webflow officially supports the Dashboard on the latest version of Chrome or Safari’s evergreen release, plus 2 versions for varying update cycles. Webflow also unofficially supports the use of all modern browsers.
* Degree of browser support depends upon features used (e.g., filter has partial support in Edge). More details can be found at:
On June 15, 2022, Microsoft officially ended support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE11). While sites published in Webflow use industry standard features supported in modern web browsers, some features unsupported by IE11 might function incorrectly on that browser. Learn more about IE11 support from Microsoft.
Webflow doesn’t support IE 9 or IE 10 in any situation. Learn more about this decision.
If you run into issues using Webflow on experimental browsers, please report your issue under the experimental browsers category on the Webflow Forum.
To create a new Webflow site, click the New site button in the upper right of your Dashboard.
You can choose to create a blank site, where you can design and develop from scratch. Or, if you prefer, you can start with a template. Learn more about templates.
When you have a number of sites in your Dashboard, you can sort them using preset sort options, organize them in folders, and filter or search for them using the search bar.
By default, your sites are sorted by date created. You can also sort them alphabetically or by last modified.
You can also organize your sites within folders in your Dashboard. Let’s walk through how you can:
You can create a folder by clicking the “folder” icon and giving the new folder a name.
You can move your site into a folder from the site menu:
You can delete any folder at any time by opening the folder and clicking the “trash” icon.
Don’t worry; your sites are safe! When you delete a folder, all sites within that folder move to All Sites, the main area of your Dashboard.
You can search within the Dashboard if you have a lot of sites. The search functionality also searches within folders.
In the Dashboard, each of your sites is represented with a thumbnail and some useful details about your site.
To open the site in the Designer, click on the thumbnail and get creative with your designs!
The site menu lets you quickly:
Thumbnail images are automatically generated for your sites in your Dashboard. They are updated each time you publish your site to your .webflow.io subdomain.
If your site’s thumbnail image is inaccurate, unpublish your site from the .webflow.io subdomain and publish it again. Hard-refresh the Dashboard to see the updated thumbnail — Shift + Command + R (on Mac) and Shift + Control + R (on Windows).
