Getting Started with Tables

Mastering your tables has never been easier!
Datalogz is divided into three panels (numbers in red) to make your experience fast and seamless.
1 The Top Banner displays the table's name, location, lineage map and displays the badges if there are any for this data. 2 There is an overview panel on the right side of the platform that focuses on giving the user a high-level summary of important aspects of the data table. 3 The panel on the left-hand side is the context and collaboration panel which contains our column documentation, dashboard, discussion, Code Templates, and lineage features.
