Adding Glossary


At Toucan, we believe in sharing more than data: we share stories. Stories need content and explanations.

Good stories push you to take action! Thatโ€™s why we have the Collaboration Panel.

From this panel, you can make a Glossary available to all your users ๐Ÿ“– .

You can specify a glossary for your whole application. Terms can be specific to a story or common to several or all.

๐Ÿ”ฅ Awesome tool for strong data storytelling, right?

Create a glossary

Terms can be set up at the story level directly from the Studio.

  1. Click on the "Glossary" menu left-hand navigation from a Story.

  1. Click on "Add New Definition"

  1. Write the Term label and the definition related to it. Always better with a definition.

If you want this definition accessible throughout your apps from any Story, tick "Make entry available on all stories." It will appear in Staging with a greyed tickbox on the right side.
