Interactive reports

You can publish notebooks as an interactive report with a shareable link. This allows you and other users to view the notebook output as a completed HTML page and edit the published notebook's copy collaboratively. Compared to Static reports, interactive reports allow viewers to dynamically change data presentations (tables and charts) using interactive controls.

Publish an interactive report

  1. Open the notebook in the editor.

  2. Click the Share button in the upper right corner of the editor to open the sharing dialog.

  4. Select the Full width mode checkbox to have the report content displayed using full screen width.

  5. Leave the Reactive mode checkbox selected if you want to have the report automatically recalculated when viewers interact with it.

    • With Reactive mode off, only the code cell directly associated with the used interactive control is recalculated.

    • With Reactive mode on, all the cells below the used interactive control and affected by the user's respective action are recalculated.
