Overview: Shareable Link

Databoards can easily be shared and accessed through the Shareable Link. The Shareable Link is a unique page outside of the Databox app where your Databoards are accessible. 

By sharing the Shareable Link with your team, Clients, executive team, etc., you can ensure everyone has one central location to access the appropriate reports. The Shareable Link will display your Databoard(s) with the same Date Range options, visualizations, and data sync frequency as you have set in the Databox Account.
