By hosting work centrally and making it easily accessible through a web browser, Domino simplifies the process of exposing work to less technical colleagues.
Three common formats for sharing work, in order of least interactive to most interactive, are Files, Launchers, and Apps.
To share a presentation-mode view of a file with a colleague, click the Copy Shareable Link button when browsing the file.
This will give you a link to a view that removes all the Domino “chrome” (e.g., the left nav) and provides a more minimal, simplified UI for the viewer. This is a great way to share charts, PDFs, or other results with non-technical colleagues.
Pro tip: Domino can render a wide variety of file types directly in the browser, including Jupyter notebooks, and Markdown files! You can send colleagues a link to an ipynb file in Domino, and they’ll be able to see the cells and rendered outputs, to view it as a report.
You can combine Domino’s file rendering and sharing capabilities with scheduled Jobs and notifications, for a powerful and flexible way to generate reports.
You can configure scheduled Jobs to notify specific recipients when the Job finishes. You can also customize the files that get included in email notifications sent from scheduled Jobs. So you could have a scheduled Job using knitr to generate HTML or PDFs, or render an ipynb file — and email the attachment and/or a link to the resulting file.
Launchers are a powerful feature for exposing self-serve, templatized analyses to stakeholders. You can expose a simple web form UI on top of a script you’ve written. Your colleagues can specify input values using the web form, then run your script with their desired inputs and get the results.
Domino makes it easy to publish and host Apps, which can have complex, very flexible interactivity and visualizations. Apps are a great way to expose rich interactive experiences to non-technical colleagues.
