This is something I have been struggling with and overthinking.
I have a website where customers create accounts, log-in and work in a dashboard to create and post items.The homepage simple serves to tell the public about my site, advertise my services and have a button to login or signup. There isn't really any useful content to show on the front page apart from this.
If the customer visits the homepage of my site, and they are already logged in, which of the following should they see:
- The homepage the same as a regular customer with a link to see their dashboard instead of the login button (As per mailchimp)
- The dashboard directly (As per gmail, hotmail etc)
Option 1 seems much more conventional approach. However, my thinking is, if I know the user is a customer already, then why waste time showing them the features of the site, just get them straight in their dashboard.
