Running your notebooks
To get to where you or other collaborators can run a notebook, you need to know how to create and publish a data notebook. Make sure you read the “Edit your Notebook” and “Publish your notebook” articles before you proceed with this section.
So, why do you need to run your notebook?
Let’s say you automatically store your customer's data in Salesforce. Your databases are constantly updated, and you pull data on a weekly basis in order to analyze it. To do all that, you want to build a data notebook that automatically collects, transforms, and analyzes the data. The published version of this data notebook displays beautiful and informative dashboards.
With Intersect, you can build a notebook, publish the final pipeline, and then run it when you need to get that specific data. On top of that, other collaborators with specific permissions will be able to do the same thing --- without building the same data workflow on their machines.
Additionally, you can schedule it to run automatically, so that it notifies you when the results are updated.
Collaborators who have access to run your apps can do this multiple times, and you can rest easy because no one can change your workflow. They will be given the power to extract the right data, whenever they need it. Plus, everyone can run the workflows as many times as they want -- Intersect will log each run and show you the detailed history of runs.
How to run your notebooks
Data notebooks can be run by collaborators only when they are published. You can do that by navigating to the left pane and clicking the “Run Notebook” button.
After your first run, you’ll see an update to the “Notebook Runs” section. The latest run will be stored, and you will be able to see details about it:
- Run ID number
- Date and hour of the run
- Collaborators who have run the notebook
