Share insights with your team

It's time to share your hard work with the world!

In Lightdash there are three primary ways to share insights with your team:

  • Share a URL to a 'work-in-progress' data exploration
  • Share a link to a saved chart
  • Download results as a .csv or a .png of the chart

Before you do any sharing though, you need someone to share it with.

Inviting your teammates to your Lightdash project#

You can only share things with people you've invited to your Lightdash project.

To invite your teammates, just click on Settings --> Invite --> Create invite link, then send your magic link to any of your teammates ๐Ÿช„

Now that you've added some teammates, you can start sharing your work!#

Here are the three ways to do this:

1. Share a URL to work in progress#

As you explore your data in Lightdash, the URL contains a unique link to your work in progress.

Copy and paste the url while you're exploring data and anybody with access to your Lightdash project can jump into an explore at exactly the same point you're at.
