Welcome to Workstream! These guides are designed for consumers of data assets, rather than the core team who builds the assets. Each article covers key Workstream functionality.
This article will discuss the contextual information provided by your data team through content overviews.
What is a content overview?
A content overview is a piece of documentation that accompanies an asset. They are written and maintained by your data team, so the content is very flexible, but in general they tell you how to use and interpret data contained in the asset. Because the content overview and the asset are linked, you always have access to it wherever you are viewing an asset. This reduces the need to locate documentation in a different system, or to have to ask a data team member how to use the asset.
In general, each asset can have one content overview. However, please note the following:
Tableau workbooks are presented as a single asset within Workstream, but each sheet within the workbook can have its own content overview
Content overviews are not required—you may find some assets without one. Remember that you can always start a conversation with your data team directly from an asset if you feel the asset needs documentation
Where can I view content overviews?
Content overviews are available wherever you may be viewing an asset, within the web app or while using the Concierge. Once you click to view an asset's details, the content overview is presented below the asset.
The content overview is also available when viewing an asset natively, using the Concierge browser extension. When the Concierge is expanded, the content overview is available from the tab at the bottom of the right rail.
Who can edit content overviews?
Workstream users with owner and editor permissions may edit content overviews, while users with commenter permissions cannot. If you are a data team stakeholder with commenter permissions and want to see updates to a content overview, we recommend starting a conversation with your data team to suggest changes.
How can I tell if an asset has a content overview?
You can easily see whether an asset has a content overview if the icon is filled in while navigating the grids in the knowledge repository.
This allows you to easily see which assets have accompanying documentation.
