Tour of Informer 5Follow us through a guided tour of Informer 5 from building a Dataset, creating a Job to refresh and send emails, to building a meaningful Dashboard and then sharing content.
What’s New in Informer 5See all the new features in Informer 5!
Creating and Using DatasetsThis session will include all the information you need to know about building and using Datasets. Understand how to create datasets, add saved filters and visuals, and share content to teams and users.
Differences Between Filters and CriteriaThis session will help you understand when to use Criteria on your Dataset versus, when to use Filters. Filters allow the end user to quickly analyze the data without having to refresh the dataset. See how you can set Filters to Private or Public.
Examples of Useful Data Flows and Post Query CalculationsUse Data Flows to augment, cleanse, and enhance your Data as it comes (flows) from the Datasource into a Dataset. Maybe add Geo location that coordinates to a zip code, compute a calculated column, or cleanse your data by removing duplicates. In addition, learn how to use create calculated columns that work on dataset data after it has been indexed.
How to Create Meaningful Visuals and DashboardsWe all know that a picture is worth a thousand words. Learn how to filter your Dataset to narrow the scope of the data. Pivot on your data to glean insights. Use Visuals to picture your data. Informer 5 Discovery automatically suggests Visuals to you based on your field selections. Create Dashboards almost seamlessly, and even create Comparison Dashboards with just a few clicks. In addition, embed your creations outside of Informer if you desire.
Using Jobs and Scheduling to Streamline ProcessesLearn how to set up a job, refresh a Dataset on a Job, add Actions to a Job and set the schedule.
Import/Export – Using Bundles to Move ContentThis session will demonstrate how you can you utilize Bundles to move all types of content from one system to another. This could be one Informer to another or just one Datasource to another. Informer can bundle Mappings, Links, Datasets, Visuals, Teams, Users, Jobs and even Dashboards.
Round Table Discussion on Datasets versus Ad Hoc QuerySee all the new features in Informer 5!
Custom Templates are Here!See the exciting new feature to create templated output. Learn how to customize and import templates to use in exporting your data.
Connect Your Salesforce DatabaseWe have created plugin that can connect your Salesforce database to Informer 5. We will show you the schema and the canned Datasets available and demonstrate the ability to link Salesforce to your main ERP system.
Customer Presentations (TBD)Real life use cases and user tips to get the most out of your Informer.
