Your dashboard is used for administrative functions- it is where you can make changes to your profile, create new experiences, and access team shortcuts on the left side of your dashboard.

Your public profile is the public-facing side of your profile- it is what other users on Riipen are able to see.

Don't want others on Riipen to see your profile? You can adjust your privacy settings by clicking on "Settings" under the arrow next to your initials in the top-right corner. 

By default, you view your profile through your dashboard as this enables you to make edits and changes. To see what your profile looks like to other users, you can click "view public profile." To return to your dashboard where you can make changes, click "return to dashboard."
