Left sidebar

The left sidebar of every screen is a global navigation menu. This sidebar is your navigation portal to all the resources for which you have permissions on The icons displayed there will vary depending on whether you are in an organization or not, and if your company uses our metadata catalog:


If you are part of at least one organization, you'll see an Organizations item at the top of the left sidebar menu. Click this menu item to access the Organizations page.


Click an organization tile to view the home page for that organization, which contains links to all of the resources in the organization. Depending on the components that the organization uses, these resources include datasets, projects, business terms, reports, tables, members, data connections, organization settings, and curated collections of the organization's resources.


The next item on the sidebar menu is Data, which links to the Data page. There, you can access all of the datasets that you own and all of the datasets to which you have access in any of your organizations.

At the top of the Data page is a list of links to all the datasets you've recently viewed. In the All data resources section, you can see tiles organizing the datasets by owner. Click a tile to view the datasets for a specific owner.


The Analysis item in the left sidebar menu is your link to all the projects and dashboards which are either owned by you or by the organization (of which you're a member).

This page serves as a launch point to your recently viewed projects and dashboards. Similar to the Data page, it contains a linked list to all the analysis resources you've recently viewed. The tiles are links to all of the analysis resources—resources that you own or which are owned by any of your organizations.


If your company uses one or more business glossaries, the Glossary item on the left menu sidebar takes you to a page that shows all the glossaries to which you have access. Like the other pages accessed from the left sidebar, the Glossary page contains your recently viewed items at the top, and links to the glossary for each of your organizations below.


The next item in the left sidebar menu links to your Bookmarks, which are links to resources you access often.


From the Bookmarks page, you can:

  • Open the resource by clicking on it.

  • See who created the bookmark.

  • See when it was last updated.

  • See what tags are used in the bookmark.

On the right-end of each bookmark listing, click the ellipsis menu to:

  • Unbookmark it.

  • Open it, if it's a project.

  • Add it to an existing project, if it's a dataset.

  • Open a new project workspace for it, if it's a dataset.


The last of item on the the left sidebar menu is for Notifications, which links to the Notifications page.

The Notifications page contains Alerts, which are items such as requests for you to join or contribute to a project. The other section is Notifications. Alerts require that you accept or decline before the action takes effect. Notifications are informational, so no action is necessary.
