Connect data to your project

You can add data to a project at any time - either when creating it or at a later time - in a few ways.

Linking datasets to an existing project

From the project overview page, click the Connect Datasets link within How do projects work? section, if available. Or from below the project description and summary section, choose Add data then data.world dataset.

You can also link datasets from the project workspace. From within the workspace, click the Add > Dataset buttonon the top left. Or from the home tab, click the Drag and drop, upload files or connect to a data source box.

Linking existing datasets

You can link datasets to a project when creating the project or later if you require additional data. For projects that already exist, you can link datasets from the project overview page and the project workspace.

Linking datasets during project creation

When creating a new project, you can click on the big Add Data prompt to connect any sort of data - including a linked dataset.

You will then have the option to Link a data.world dataset in the new window that opens:

After selecting that option, you can use the search bar and the tabs below to find your datasets in your resources, among your bookmarks, or from the data.world community at large. Click on the question mark icon for some hints or see Using search for advanced search tips.

Simply click the Link button to the right of the dataset you would like to add. You can link as many datasets as you'd like. If you accidentally link one that you don't want, hover the mouse over the Linked button - it will changed to an Unlink button which you can click to remove the dataset from the project.
