Common Tasks All Guides to Mandala Visuals

How do I get started?

Check out the guides in Start with Visuals To create an account, you can log in with your NetBadge credentials. Before you add visualizations, create a collection to house them.  

Why won't my spreadsheet work?

Make sure you're formatting your spreadsheet correctly using the documentation in the Visualization Index and the Use Spreadsheet Data guides. This does take some trial and error. You can try:

  • different data formats for the columns, 
  • making sure naming conventions are consistent, and
  • experimenting with different formats for dates. 

Remember, copy header information exactly as it appears in the Visualization Index. If you need help, contact shanti-support@virginia.edu.
