Publish a Visualization
Visualizations 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:
Typically used for drafts, this is the default status.
Only visible for the user.
Visible for the user and a selected group of people.
Visible for all Dragon1 users.
Visible for everyone in the world.
