The User Console is BOLD's landing page when users log in. This console provides a quick overview of the user data management activities. Features available in this console include rapid access to frequently visited projects, reports on project activity, as well as powerful and improved search tools.
Users can rapidly view activities associated with their projects through the real-time Activity Report and quickly navigate to recently accessed projects in the Projects You Recently Accessed box, which automatically updates when the User Console is opened. Users can also view and create new datasets right from this console. Both the user's private datasets and all the public ones are visible. Public datasets are sorted by the dataset managers, so users can easily find a set of data by scanning the list of contributors.
Upload options are also provided here, so there is no need to open a specific project to upload images, trace files, or sequences. The system will match the Sample and Process IDs in the upload file and add the data to the correct records. New primers and publications can also be registered to the system from this console. These shortcuts allow users to upload data across multiple projects simultaneously.
New Integrated Search Bar
The newest version of BOLD introduces an integrated search bar accessible from the User Console , Project Console, and Project List. Users no longer have to go back to the User Console to search for records, projects codes, tags, or titles on BOLD. By selecting the Record Search from the Project Console and Record List , users now have the ability to choose if they want to search records within the project or within BOLD.

Real-time Activity Reporting
The Activity Report can be viewed from the User Console and the Project Console, it logs all the activities pertinent to the user and project, respectively. This tool is very useful in keeping track of collaborative work, as users will be able to view the list of changes being made to their records. The activity report will log the addition of new specimens, images, traces, and sequences to the system, updates to specimen information, sequence deletions, and insertions of GenBank accessions. In addition, new tags, flags, and comments are also recorded, so project managers can quickly stay informed of the actions taken in their projects. Logs can be downloaded, allowing users to keep personal records and perform additional analysis.
