Static reports

You can publish notebooks as a static report with a shareable link. This allows you and other users to view the notebook output as a completed HTML page and edit its copy collaboratively. Compared to interactive reports, static reports allow viewers to only leave comments.

  2. Open the Report builder in one of the two ways:

    • Click the Build report button in the upper-right corner of the editor screen.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Publish a report using the original structure of the notebook

    • Prepare a report using the Report builder before publishing

    Refer to the Build and publish reports topic for more details about the tool.

The newly published notebook is added to the Reports list on the Home page.
