Intro to Element Types

Developed workbooks typically house a collection of elements on a single page and/or distributed across multiple pages. 

There are three element types: data elements, UI elements, and control elements. Each has a unique function, and they collectively allow you to display, interact with, and provide additional context to your data.

Workbook editors define elements and can individually configure them for viewer interaction.
