By: Jeff Burtenshaw

Overview of this book

Domo is a power-packed business intelligence (BI) platform that empowers organizations to track, analyze, and activate data in record time at cloud scale and performance. Data Democratization with Domo begins with an overview of the Domo ecosystem. You’ll learn how to get data into the cloud with Domo data connectors and Workbench; profile datasets; use Magic ETL to transform data; work with in-memory data sculpting tools (Data Views and Beast Modes); create, edit, and link card visualizations; and create card drill paths using Domo Analyzer. Next, you’ll discover options to distribute content with real-time updates using Domo Embed and digital wallboards. As you advance, you’ll understand how to use alerts and webhooks to drive automated actions. You’ll also build and deploy a custom app to the Domo Appstore and find out how to code Python apps, use Jupyter Notebooks, and insert R custom models. Furthermore, you’ll learn how to use Auto ML to automatically evaluate dozens of models for the best fit using SageMaker and produce a predictive model as well as use Python and the Domo Command Line Interface tool to extend Domo. Finally, you’ll learn how to govern and secure the entire Domo platform. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained the skills you need to become a successful Domo master.

Distributing via email

The Domo user experience is optimized for mobile consumption but since email is still a heavily used delivery channel, let's learn how to send and schedule content via email.

To send an email on a card, on the 2020-Q4 Sales Miss page, click on the Sales Attainment card, and click the wrench icon. You will see three email options in the drop-down menu: Schedule as Report, Send Now, and Send / Export. Let's take a closer look.

Option 1 – Schedule as Report

Follow these steps to schedule a report to be emailed:

  1. The first option is to click the Schedule as Report option, which opens the Schedule report dialog, as shown in the following screenshot:
