When you first log in, you will see the Dashboard (shown below). This is where we keep you up to date with Cloud Journals news, issues, bug fixes and features. You can also access any of your favourite journals and helpful quick links. The dashboard is continuously being updated to include additional Cloud Journals features, so keep an eye out for any new changes.
