This tutorial explains how to create a collection of insights, which are user-configurable insights on data ranging from charts to calendar heatmaps.
At the end of this tutorial, you’ll be able to
- Create a set of insights based on data types available for your city
- Share out your insights to the public
1. Creating Collections
To create a collection, navigate to the insights page. By default, the page will be blank and there will be a prompt to create a collection using data sources. Select Create A Collection and on the following page, you'll name and describe your insights collection, and select a privacy setting to make it available internally or publicly visible when people visit the open data portal. After the prompts, select Create to start adding insights.

Once you've named your collection, select add an insight on the following page to begin making your collection.
2. Select your insights
For this example, we're only interested in creating a transportation dashboard so we'll select the transit-related insights. If you want to add more insights, you can always go back and edit the collection to add more data. Select add when you're done with your selections.
