Pages are interactive layouts that display data from your models.

Source data

Each page displays data from a single source model. Like dashboards, they're a way for you to analyze and visualize the data from your modules. However, they exist outside your model, in your apps.

This means you can change the source model for a page so that it displays data from another source model.

If you have Professional or Enterprise entitlement, workspace administrators can enable multiple models for a page and associate additional models with that page. The page can still only display data from one source model at a time. However, when you have access to more than one model associated with a page, you can switch between source models associated with the page.

Page types

As a page builder you choose the type of page you want to build when you create a page.

Choose worksheets to present data in large grids that you can analyze and edit.

Choose boards to create more visual pages that display high-level information. 

After you create your page, it displays in designer mode, where you can draft the appearance and functions of the page.

Once you publish your page, you can access designer mode at any time to edit and customize it further. Click the pencil icon in the top-right of the page to enter designer mode.

Choose your page type

Worksheets and boards both present data from models to end users, but there are some key differences.

Worksheets are best suited to display full-page grids, where the main use for the page is to enter and filter data. A worksheet enables you to perform detailed planning and analysis.

You can also use the Additional insights panel on a worksheet to link to other pages and add cards. Cards enable further interaction with the model data or add visualizations to the page. However, on a worksheet, the main focus is the grid.

A worksheet page. The primary grid displays on the left, occupying most of the page, and a series of links and cards in the Additional insights panel on the right.

Boards display cards. You can include a grid card, but you can also choose to display visualizations, such as charts and key performance indicators, more prominently. 

Boards can also be used as a navigational tool, to direct users to more detailed data. For example, you can publish a chart to a board, and link the card to a worksheet with more detailed data. This link guides the user to the supporting data they need for analysis.
