An update from Databoutique.com
This is the weekly update from Databoutique.com. We cover new features, use cases, and noteworthy stuff.
Using data for market analysis can be hard and time-consuming. We want to make it less so.
We are creating a platform where data can be accessed fast, to share ideas within and outside a team.
This Stubstack is our journal.
Collaboration tools: Charts Descriptions
Hi everyone! This week we are adding an important piece to our boutique, bringing it closer to a collaborative platform: Users can now add a description to a saved analysis or a chart.
What do we mean by “descriptions” and why it’s important
A description is a written “comment” to your analysis. Imagine it like the introductory text to a slide, where your chart is presented. Take it as an opportunity to point out to the reader (whoever you will share this analysis with) what you wanted to highlight when saving your chart and data in your library.
A chart is just a picture: No matter how obvious it may look to you, different people will see different things in it. Some would not know where to look if you provide no guidance.
Two months from now, even you would forget why you saved that analysis. Just write it down, and your future self will thank you for that.
How do I add a description?
Ok, that’s the easy part. You can do it:
When you create your analysis
At any other moment, by editing the saved chart.
This way you can also go back to whatever work you have saved, and add a description.
Where is this going next?
In the coming weeks, we’ll cover features for collaboration, including sharing within a team or publicly, importing analysis from other users and more.
Data in the news
Where Databoutique.com data has been used in the most recent weeks:
Alliance Bernstein double hit: The September 2022 'price discipline' index, and the Fundamental Inventory Review (FIR) - 3Q22. We are very thankful to Luca and all of his team for their work. Without analysts, data would be just numbers!
That’s it for this week. I hope that was useful. If you like our project, share this with your network!
