How to :: Enrich a Story


You can enrich stories by adding comments to contextualize data in a Story or improve understanding.

Comments are dynamic : they depend on values of the app report and/or date range .


Say you have an app report with all your customers and a date range. You can add a comment for ‘ACME’ during ‘last month’ and add a different comment for ‘Umbrella Corp’ during the same timeframe.


Comments can be written by the following privileges:

  • Business Specialist
  • Contributor
  • Owner

In order to write comments in an app you have to create an app report and/or a date range.

How to add a comment

Comments can only be added in Production mode. You don’t need to go in Staging to add/edit a comment.

The value of the date range is interpolated to reflect the actual date range it represents. For example, ‘Current Month’ can be interpolated as ’01/01/2022 to 31/01/2022’.


Selecting the same date range preset can result in different date ranges depending on when you write the comment. ‘Current Month’ in March will result in ’01/03/20xx to 31/03/20xx’. ‘Current Month’ in April will result in ’01/04/20xx to 30/04/20xx’.

How comments are displayed

Comments are displayed at the top of Stories. If the Story already has a narrative, you can switch between narrative and comment using arrows on the right.


Display different comments by changing selected values of the app report and date range.
