Profiles are an in-app feature across the sensemetrics platform, they allow you to save a layout and return to it at any time. Each module of the platform contains its own set of Profiles that are specific to that module. Once a profile has been created it is possible to share it with other Users within your organization. In this way, they will have access to view the exact data sets that will be displayed as you have specified for that profile. Permissions may be set to restrict access to a profile so that you have complete control of who can view, edit, and own that profile. See Sharing for more information on setting up permissions.
By saving profiles under the graphing, table, and map module's you will have the ability to easily collaborate with your colleagues. You can save critical and informative displays that are vital to interpreting and understanding your data on the sensemetrics platform.
