5. The Expert´s Dashboard

All experts can only join AlSuite by invitation, i.e. when an organization invites you to join AlSuite.
In order to join AlSuite you will receive an invitation letter sent to you by email. The email redirects you to an account creation window where you will be required to accept terms and conditions and then you can create an account in AlSuite.
Assuming you have gone through the login in process, you are able to access AlSuite at app.alsuite.com.
Login with your email and password that you gave at account creation.

Note: In order to learn more about the AlSuite dashboard, navigation bar and key features we recommend that you get conversant with the dashboard layout here.

Upon login, you will be directed to the default dashboard as show in the image below. Currently you will not see much content in the expert´s dashboard, as this is still being designed. The main feature that you will be able to manage is your CV.
