About the Workbench

It's called the Workbench because it holds all your raw materials (series) and a huge range of tools for building and sharing calculations, displays, and more.

The Workbench tab shows all the series in your account.

As series are added to your account, the newest ones show first.

The Workbench contains the same series as your dropZone tab. They are simply shown as a flat list, without groupings.

Workbench Tools

Each series in the workbench has a checkbox

Checked series are included in whatever actions follow. For example, if you check four series and press the Delete button, those are the series that will be deleted.

Tables, Charts, etc.

Buttons to Create and Edit Displays


Formula editor for Calculations


These Buttons are for Series Maintenance

Column Headers

Data Rows

Every row of data has a lot behind it; a popup chart, original documentation and footnotes, a link to its source, cross-references, and more.
