How to :: create a glossary


At Toucan we believe in sharing more than data, we share stories. Stories need content and explanation.

Good stories push you to take action! That’s why we have the action-panel.

From this panel, you can make a Glossary available to all your users 📖 .

You can specify a glossary for your whole application. Terms can be specific to a story or common to several or all.
