Linked Data

Link data collections to a pathway

Linked data is simply a data collection that has been pulled into a pathway from the Data Manager. This allows you to use data in a Data Activity or in Data Tracking.

How to link data

From your collection, pick the data that you want to use for a specific purpose in your pathway.

To illustrate the process, we will use the example of tracking sales amongst your staff. Here is the data we used:
