Creating Applications

In Arcadia Enterprise, we use Applications (or Apps) to collate all relevant information about a dataset, a line of inquiry, or a business.

The following steps demonstrate how to create a new application.

  1. On the main navigation bar, click Apps.

    The Apps view appears.

  2. Above the left navigation bar, click New App.

    An Untitled application appears on the main screen.

  3. Note that the page opens by default on the Visuals menu on the left navigation bar. It shows the following items:

    1. A few recently viewed visuals.

    2. A selection menu for a data connection, marked by (link) icon.

    3. A selection menu for a dataset, marked by (dataset) icon.

    4. The list of visuals based on the selected dataset.

  4. Click an icon representing a particular visual. Note that it is added to the application.

    We used Population comparisons by state.

  5. Proceed to add several visuals to the application.

    We added US population by state and US Population Growth, by Region.

  6. To change the size of a specific visual, hover your mouse near the bottom right corner of the visual frame until a diagonal arrow appears.

  7. Click and drag to change the size of the visual frame.

    Note that the extra-wide trellised visual is now fully visible.

  8. Click Edit next to the title of the application. By default, it should be set to Untitled.
  9. Change the title of the application to US Population.
  10. Above the left navigation bar, click Save.
