Sharing Analyses

You can share an analysis with one or more other users by emailing them a link, making it easy to collaborate and disseminate findings. You can only share an analysis with other users in your Amazon QuickSight account.

Once you share an analysis, you can review the other users that have access to it, and also revoke access from any user.

Share an Analysis

Use the following procedure to share an analysis.

  1. On the analysis page, choose Share on the application bar and then choose Share analysis.
