Now that you know how to build an awesome data storytelling application, let’s make sure we make it accessible to your users.

Operations & Status

You can perform two of the most frequently used operations from the toolbar by clicking on the spanner (or wrench) icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the tool bar:

  • Refresh Data: By clicking on this you will launch the ETL process that loads and computes data. It will make sure your data is up-to-date
  • Publish: By clicking on this you will make all changes available to your end-users
