Demo Data

When you create an account and log in to the workspace for the first time, you'll see some published workbooks and a data connection with example data views (Figure 4).

These examples are read-only, and we've included them to help you get started and demonstrate a published workbook. If you decide you'd rather not include these examples in your workspace, an Administrator user can delete the data in the Administration section.
