:floppy_disk: Save charts and share them with your team

Once you’ve crafted the perfect metric and visualisation, you can now save it and share it with your team.

Naming stuff is hard!!! We had a lot of fun working with you (the community) to come up with the best name for a saved chart. ‘Saved query’ came out on top for technical folks but ‘Saved chart’ was voted the most accessible terminology across the whole org.

Want to join in the shenanigans? It’s all happening over in the #tools-lightdash channel in dbt’s slack space: https://community.getdbt.com

:lock: Secure Lightdash deployments with email + password

You can now secure your Lightdash app with an email and password. The first time you sign up for Lightdash you’ll be asked to create a user and organisation.

In the next week we’ll be launching plenty of new features to manage your organisation (e.g. inviting your team mates to join you in Lightdash).
