Welcome to Workstream! You're on your way to supercharging your analytics workflows, and empowering your stakeholders with a single place to discover, access, and contextualize your data assets. This article gives an overview of the asset details page.

When you have chosen an asset you'd like to take a closer look at, simply click on the asset card to open the asset details page. When viewing an asset within your workspace, in most cases it will be dynamically embedded. It will reflect the latest, live data and support dynamic interactions like filters.

To view and interact with the asset here, you will need to be logged into the asset's native application. Most assets will also allow you to login directly from the asset details page.

Some of the statuses will be familiar from viewing the asset in the Knowledge Repository, but there is a lot more to delve into here. To start, you can view the last time the asset synced, and resync the asset using the button at the top of the page in order to make sure your data is up to date.

The asset's content overview is available directly under the asset. Owners and editors can update the content overview here in order to curate documentation about the asset.

The right rail gives you several more options to provide context for your asset. Please note that the right rail is collapsible to give you more room to work if you need it.

  1. The information tabs gives you further detail about the asset, including metadata (date added, direct URL) and tags. Click the 3 dots at the top of the tab to quickly rename, certify, or open the asset externally.

  2. The conversations tab shows all conversations related to the asset. They are broken down by active and solved so you can see both requests and questions that need immediate attention, and inquiries that have previously been resolved.

    You can respond directly to any conversations from this section.

  3. If you have a dbt Cloud status page for the asset, it will appear here, providing you with details about the asset's data quality and freshness. Assets without a dbt connection configured will not display this icon.

  4. You can also see asset history, which shows a complete breakdown of when the asset was viewed, and when conversations were updated. Where possible, Workstream displays a snapshot of what the asset looked like at the time when it was viewed, giving you additional context on the interaction.

Finally, the icon in the bottom right corner of the page allows anyone viewing the asset to start a new conversation.
