Introduction to the Insight Library

The Insight Library is a repository where One Model users can save insights created through our different data exploration tools. The Insight Library allows users to save and reuse their queries instead of having to configure a new query each time from scratch.Access the Insight Library through either the Explore or Storyboard tabs:  

1. Explore >Charts and Tables

2. Explore >Org Chart, and

3. Storyboards

1. Charts and Tables

To get to Charts and Tables, you will need to select the Explore tab, and then click on Charts and Tables

To open the Insight Library, click on the Library icon at the top right of the page

The Insight Library appears in a window with options to Search for, Sort by, Create New Category. The left column will list all of the Insights you have saved to the Insight Library. 


2. Org Chart

To get to the Org Chart, you will need to select the Explore tab and then Org Chart. 

To save to the Insight Library, click on the save icon on the top right of the page  > Select or Create a New Category and type in the Insight Name.

To open the Insight Library popup window from Explore > Org Charts > click on the Insight Library icon on the Explore Org Chart navigation bar. 


The Insight Library is personalized, meaning that the Categories and Insights created are individual to the user. The insights however can be opened in the Org Chart tool and shared via Storyboards to other roles.
