Plugins enable the system to be safely customized (by customers, system integrator partners, and our own services team) to meet customer requirements without the need for a new software release. These customizations can also be easily shared between users and organizations via Github or the NPM Central Repository.
The possibilities with plugins are really limitless. New functionality or customized features can be easily added to the system to support your data analysis. You can have a plugin that automatically provides links between tables in your Datasource, or a customized formatted output, for example: invoice, or a new visual type, or a new logo or color scheme, etc.
