Hi,

 

I'd like to know if there's an ability to edit the data used in an Insights workbook directly from the workbook itself.

I.e. let's say I have a table of places (names + coordinates), and I'd like to insert a new field "color" and fill it according to some algorithm (e.g. with a .py script)/manually. Is that possible? Doesn't matter to me if it's a new view of the data source or the data source itself.

If there is such a possibility, what is its limitations?

This can be accomplished manually using Calculate a field.

Will this work for your workflow?

Hi Scott, thanks for replying and sorry for my late response.

This is a very good option if I only want to add a calculated field, but what if I also want to edit a source field? E.g. correct a poorly etl'd data from the workbook itself? And again, I don't mind if it'd change the data source itself, even if it's merely a separate view in my workbook - the point is to be able to edit the table somehow.

Hi YechiamWe,

ArcGIS Insights is not designed to edit existing data. When you create a new field, it's actually stored as part of the Insights project. You can then share/export/publish any newly created data to a new table or service. Hope this answers?
