IMPORTANT: This document is specific to Sigma's new Workbooks feature

Developed workbooks typically house a collection of elements. These elements can be grouped on a single workbook page or distributed across multiple pages. 

There are three primary element types, each with a different function: data elements, UI elements, and control elements. Together, these element types allow you to display, interact with, and provide additional context to your data.

Elements are defined by workbook editors and can be individually configured for viewer interaction.
