See the video version of this article

The Dataiku Design homepage is like the default page of a website. It’s where you land:

  • When you sign in to your Dataiku design instance via your web browser, if you’re using a self-managed installation.

  • When you open an instance from the launchpad, if you’re using Dataiku Cloud.

It’s where you will be able to see shared projects if you are collaborating with colleagues or other users, and create new ones.
