How to :: create a glossary

Overview

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 additional 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.

🔥 Awesome tool for a strong data storytelling right ?
