Improving the communication and collaboration between your team is easy using social tools your workspace.
- To share information and comments simply create a Note, or
- To link related concepts or information, use Tags.
These features are available in the Summary tab.
The difference between notes and insights
Highlighting something of interest
When you do or learn something that you think might be of interest to other workspace users, you can create a Note. Notes are attached to the object to which they pertain, such as a workspace or dataset. Other users can attach Comments to a Note, thereby creating a thread.
Highlighting something of importance
An Insight is an important conclusion or observation about data in a workspace that you consider worthy of more emphasis than a Note.
Both Notes and Insights are distributed in the same way.
Adding notes and insights
To add a Note or Insight, use the ‘Add a note’ or ‘Add an insight’ buttons in the right hand sidebar. All Notes and Insights appear in the Activity list in the Details panel and on the Summary tab in the workspace.
Notifying other users of your notes and insights
When you create a Note or Insight, the default is to notify ‘nobody’. This means that it is attached to the relevant activity lists on the workspace but no proactive notification of other workspace users takes place. However, you can choose to notify selected individuals that you have created a Note or Insight. When you do this, each selected individual’s notification icon will turn red and they will get the notification when they click the icon.
Viewing notes and insights from others
When someone adds a Note or Insight and notifies you, these notifications are presented to you through the ‘Notifications’ alert box in the toolbar. To view the notification:
- Click the alert box to display the five most-recent notifications.
- Click ‘Show all messages’ to navigate to the Notification page and see all notifications.
Tags are used to identify and group objects within the AnalytiXagility platform, such as documents, files and database tables or views. For example attaching a tag to the files and notes related to specific project may help to better organise the workspace contents.
Note: the set of tags is global to the installation, therefore tags that you enter can be seen and used by other users, even if they do not belong to any of your workspaces.
To add a tag, click the ‘Add/edit tags’ button then simply type a relevant word or phrase in the text box.
To add multiple tags, use a comma character to separate them. As you type, a list of existing tags will appear; you can choose one of these by clicking on it. Please note that tags already associated with the object will be listed.
In list views such as the Files tab, you can add a tag or tags to multiple items in a single action:
- Select the items you wish to tag using the relevant checkboxes. When ticked, a panel entitled Selection will appear in the right-hand sidebar, with a count indicating how many items have been selected.
- When the correct items have been selected, use the ‘Add/edit tags’ button below to perform the appropriate action.
To view all tags, click the spanner icon in the toolbar then click ‘Tags’. This lists all tags in the platform, including those associated with other users and workspaces.
Clicking on a tag enables you to see all objects that have been associated with that tag. Clicking on the tab names display the items related to that tag that you have access to.
To remove a tag from an object, display the item then position your pointer over the tag to remove and click the next to the tag name; for example .
Alternatively you can click the ‘Add/edit tags’ button in the right-hand sidebar and remove the tag from within the resulting popup window.
