Before You Sign In

Important

This content only applies to administration tasks for the Sysdev dashboard, which is being replaced by the Windows Hardware Dev Center Dashboard. See Windows Hardware Dev Center Dashboard for current support and transition timelines.

To use the Hardware Dev Center dashboard, you must first register both you and your company on the dashboard. The dashboard replaces the Windows Quality Online Services website also known as Winqual.

Registering on the dashboard

When you register on the dashboard, there are three possible paths that you can take, depending on whether you are registering a new company for the first time, adding a user to an existing company, or migrating an existing Winqual account.
