Sigma offers a variety of templates to create presentation-ready dashboards. For each given use case, templates can eliminate the need for your team to model data, build new reports, and create visualizations. Instead, Sigma generates all of these directly from your connection in seconds.
When you create a new dashboard from a template, Sigma will automatically create any associated Datasets, worksheets, and visualizations necessary to create the Dashboard. You will be the owner of this generated content and can edit it to customize the dashboard at any time. You may choose to use your template generated dashboards simply for out of the box quick insights OR you can build on them for a more customized experience.
Summary of Content
- Templates are only available for use by organization Admins.
- Additional requirements may exist on a per-template type basis. Please refer to the individual template’s documentation for specific requirements.
