Data Reload Process in Auto Insights

Last modified: July 20, 2022

If I have new rows or columns, do I have to make the same selections again? This article discusses the re-upload process in Auto Insights. Reuploading data into Auto Insights is a simple process. Auto Insights remembers the original selections you made when confirming fields, so you only have to go through this process once. 

f you’re adding new rows of data to your dataset (for example, to include additional time periods), you won’t need to waste time re-selecting all your original field choices.

If you're adding new columns of data into Auto Insights, Auto Insights identifies and will clearly flag this to you, so that it's easy to see what's new.

Step 1) Go to Datasets in Admin Portal
