The UAE has introduced its Design Language System (DLS) and other guidelines, principles and policies to ensure that users have a superior experience while using government portals. One of the key features of the portal is the ability for users to customise and personalise their experience, making it more efficient and user-friendly. A personalised dashboard is available to users, which enables them to access, store, and review their data, interactions and transactions within the portal. Specific service transactions initiated through the portal can be saved and accessed later. Users can customise or personalise the portal to mark their favorite or most used online services.
