CDP Data Visualization, Visuals interface

The information available on the CDP Data Visualization Visuals interface helps you learn how to use the various visualization features. In this interface, you can initiate a number of operations when working with visuals.

You can work in grid or list view. Grid View shows you thumbnail previews of your visuals, dashboards, and applications, while List View presents the items vertically arranged as a single, continuous, multiple-line list. List view exposes the ID of the visuals, dashboards, and apps, and it also shows the number of related dashboards and linked visuals with their IDs.
