Share (Back to QUICK LINKS)
The data table can be shared as editable or non-editable. The recipient will receive the shared data table in their “My Data Tables” file in the Data Table Application. If the data table is shared as editable, the recipient can make changes to the configuration of the data table. These changes will also take effect in the original version. No notification will alert the recipient that a chart was shared with them.
Within the Data Table application is the ability to schedule reports to be delivered to a specific user or a group of users. The user receives an in-app and email notification to download the report(s) directly. A Data Table can be scheduled for different occurrences to meet your needs.
First, confirm you are scheduling within the correct school year. Next, click a date on the calendar for your first delivery, then select the time. The application will allow you to select more than one date. Continue to click any other dates/times you may wish the report to be delivered. When finished, click Save and Continue.
Use the Add Recipient button to view the selector. A new selector menu will appear at the bottom of the page.
Select a Role (optional - Administrator, Teacher, Specialist, Employee, Student) and Type (optional - All, Filter, Select) from the drop-down menus. Once you have selected the intended recipient(s), click Save to save your scheduling of the report. If you want to edit, delete or view the report, it can be found under My Data Tables.
