Before you start

  1. Reports encompass a diverse range of tools and features to present data in a meaningful and accessible manner. The two types found in Data Stories are:

    • Dashboards - Enable the creation of interactive data visualizations on an infinite grid canvas with a fully customizable layout. Users can import visualizations, arrange them strategically, and enhance them with static widgets such as videos, images, and texts.

      Cross-filtering is available for all widgets that share a common data source across the canvas, offering enhanced flexibility.

    • Stories - Offer a dynamic, slide-based approach to data visualization, allowing for multiple views or perspectives of data to be presented sequentially. Users can create interactive stories with both visualizations and static widgets, each slide configured on its own unique grid canvas.

  2. Collections act as folders where you can group related visualizations. You can then share them with team members or groups, or transfer ownership.

  3. Visualizations provide a preliminary analysis that helps you understand the data in your dataset and its characteristics, as well as find patterns in it. The modern and user-friendly interface allows you to build visualizations quickly and with a high level of detail. You can then seamlessly add these visualizations into any type of report.
