Insights and Dashboards

What's an insight?

“Insights” are pieces of content where you can combine text, charts, tables, or images to share your ideas. It can be anything you want. You can create:

  • Presentations
  • Dashboards
  • Recurrent reports

Insights – like charts and datasets - are stored in your repositories and can be created and edited by you or anyone in your team. Once published, they will have a permanent URL address that can be easily shared (more sharing options will be available soon).

How to create an insight

To create and publish an insight, find and click the button in the upper right of the site "Create New" and select "Insight". You can also select one of your or your teams repositories and click on “New insight” located on the upper right. The window on the left is the editor. There you can write, insert charts or format your insight. In the window of the right, you can preview your insight.

Follow the instructions already written to help you in the process. Delete them to start writing!

  • Headers can be included by using #, ##, ###, ####
