Curate Apache Superset and Preset with Content Tags

Satoko Nakayama

As a data practitioner on the data team, seeing the increasing adoption of BI analytics across your company is exciting news. However, as the number of charts and dashboards continues to grow, keeping them well-organized can become a challenge, especially when you want to make them easily discoverable and shareable with your team and key stakeholders.

That's why we're announcing content tags, which make the organization of charts, dashboards, and saved queries in Apache Superset and Preset Cloud easier, enabling effortless data discovery, access, and collaboration for everyone in your organization.

In Preset, we're also introducing enhancements in the coming weeks to simplify tag creation and curation, as well as to provide instant access to frequently used content.

Curate charts and dashboards

Using flexible and customizable tags, content creators can curate charts, dashboards, and saved queries. Each piece of content can have multiple tags, providing flexibility in organizational structures to accommodate various ways of organizing assets (e.g., “Sales Dashboard" could be tagged as Sales Team, Internal, Key Metrics, Leadership Review, etc.).

Discover relevant data and analytics

Finding and searching for tagged content is easy. Search using tag names from any of the Dashboard, Charts, or Saved Queries pages. On our newly created "Tags" page, users can easily access all content items tagged with a specific keyword, enabling the discovery of dashboards related to similar topics and interests. Tags can be used to organize assets into collections for teams, business lines, product categories, and more.

Manage tags with workspace roles

In Preset, tag permissions are initially linked to workspace roles, simplifying the management and maintenance of organizational structures. Only workspace administrators have the authorization to create, edit, and delete tags, thus preventing issues such as duplicates, disarray, and unclear tags. Content creators can apply tags to their created content, and individuals with viewing access can locate tagged content as permitted by their data access roles.

Pin them for instant access

If your organization has many users and content, it can still be a challenge to locate and access the most critical charts and dashboards tagged with specific keywords. In the coming weeks, you'll have the capability to pin your favorite assets to Preset's Homepage, enabling you to access them instantly upon logging into Preset.
