Navigating using tabs

Tab navigation allows you to quickly navigate to the views that are available to you when you work with apps. The tabs work in conjunction with the global menu. The global menu is context-sensitive.

You can perform different tasks depending on the option that you select in the drop-down menu under the Prepare, Analyze, or Narrate tab in the top toolbar. For example, if you choose Sheet under Analyze you can Make sheet public, Download sheet as PDF, Duplicate sheet, Delete sheet, or Embed sheet.

Under the Prepare tab, you can select:

  • Data load editor

  • Vocabulary
