Introduction

The Alchemy dashboard contains tools and resources to help you onboard easier, monitor your apps health, debug in real time, and enable entirely new features to improve your development processes.

The Alchemy product suite, the overall industry landscape, and most importantly, your needs as builders have changed drastically, so we felt like it was time for our dashboard interface to evolve with it. 

We spoke to dozens of developers and learned that they need easy ways to understand the status of their applications and to take action on potential issues they might be having. The new dashboard provides cleaner pathways for getting the context and data necessary to solve the important issues. 

Check out the changes for yourself by visiting: https://dashboard.alchemy.com/
