Introduction to Data Explorer


Data Explorer allows you to create widgets to analyze and visualize your data.

A widget represents your data in a table or chart - chart widgets are also called visualizations. Widgets can also be images, videos and text. Add widgets to a dashboard to display one or more widgets on a page.

In Data Explorer, a View is an editor for your widgets. Only views that are added to a dashboard are saved.
