Working with apps and visualizations

Sheets provide a way of structuring your ideas and purposes for your app. When you create an empty app, it is good practice to first build a structure of empty sheets, where each sheet represents an idea or a goal.

This section provides you with examples of how to create sheets, variables and visualizations, how to update their properties, render their layout, publish them to a stream, unpublish them, and export their data. Examples on how to remove sheets, variables and visualizations are also provided.

See Working with apps and visualizations.

Discovering and analyzing

When you have created your app and loaded data into it you can start using it for data discovery and analysis.

To make discoveries in your data you make selections in the visualizations, and you can go into detail in your data and gain new insights as you filter out data for certain areas. You can use the global search to find specific data and filter your visualizations. In addition, to keep track and be able to go back to previous selections you can bookmark your selection states.

In this section, you can find examples on how to make selections, create some bookmarks, and search in data.

See: Discovering and analyzing.

Building a story

The purpose of a story is to gather insight throughout your analysis and build clear narratives around your data. You structure the story in a way that makes it come out as convincing as possible to your audience.

Using slides, you can structure your story and put time-based snapshots of your data visualizations into these slides.

In this section, you can find examples on how to create a story, add some slides, and take some snapshots.
