Build Your First Workflow
New users can leverage the Cascade Canvas Tutorial in their workspace for a hands-on experience discovering Cascade.
Everything in Cascade starts with a workflow, which serves as the backbone of the data logic. Within minutes, the cards and dots located in the tool menu allow you to quickly formulate your logic into a visual representation.
From your workspace, click 'New Workflow'. Instantly, you will be redirected to the canvas located within a new workflow file.
Most of the Import tools must be set up before they can be connected to subsequent tools. To do this, click on the tool and follow the prompts in the tool configuration.
A wrench icon displayed atop a tool is indicative of the fact that it needs to be configured.
Having imported data to your canvas, it's time to hone in on crafting a data-logic flow. Connect your input data to one (or numerous) of the following tool types: cleanse, transform, merge.
Transform tools provide insight into data. The Edit Columns tool possesses an expression builder in the style of a spreadsheet, allowing for the insertion of new calculations. Additionally, you can incorporate a Pivot tool to total and aggregate data. The Filter tool is also useful for singling out rows based on a given criteria.
Don't let your insights remain locked in your data. Transform your findings into visuals to share with your colleagues. Utilize the Chart tool to create bar charts, line graphs, scatter plots, and more.
Construct a Data App to showcase your discoveries, like a notebook-style microsite. Create a narrative to share with a client. Develop a tools dashboard. Or design a data integration portal for your partner-clients. Interested in exploring Data Apps? Check out our Data App Gallery or take a peek at Build Your First Data App.
