    2. Welcome Tour: To complete the tour tap the CONTINUE button to review the content on each slide and then tap the DONE button to exit.

    2. At this point, locate the Quick Start Courses option and hover over it to reveal the "show" (eye) icon. 
    3. Next, select the icon to remove the dashboard view. The name will appear in light gray font, indicating that it has been hidden. Tap the DONE button to apply this change.
