Ready to start building in Wave Analytics? In this course, you’ll find out how to design and create an effective dashboard layout to help explorers quickly find their way around. You’ll learn how to build lenses and “clip” them into your dashboards to create selectors, filters, and widgets, and how to create a faceted dashboard which automatically updates as explorers interact with it. Once you’ve created a dashboard, you’ll learn about the JSON file that defines a dashboard and how it can be modified for advanced functionality, such as creating mobile layouts and modifying lens queries. You’ll also learn how to organize your lenses and dashboards using apps and ensure that only the right users have access to them.
