Publish a Visualization


Visualizations in Dragon1 can be shared via publishing. In order to control the number of people capable of seeing the Visualization, Dragon1 uses a mechanism in which the author can specify who is able to see the Visualization. This mechanism is called the "Publication Status".

Dragon1 supports five publication statuses:

  • Unpublished
    Typically used for drafts, this is the default status.
  • Private
    Only visible for the user.
  • Privileged
    Visible for the user and a selected group of people.
  • Public
    Visible for all Dragon1 users.
  • Worldwide
    Visible for everyone in the world.
