Providing Data

All dataset files that are used within a Project can be provided easily for further usage, e.g. download easily CSV files from your Datameer instance.

Downloading the CSV File#

To download your data as a CSV file:

  1. In the Data Grid, select the "Preview" tab and click on the "Download CSV" icon. The download is being prepared and the snackbar informs you when the download is ready.

  2. Click on "Download Now" to download the CSV file. The file is now available according to your download configuration, e.g. in the download folder.

Downloading the Exploration CSV File#

To download the exploration CSV file:

  1. In the Data Grid, select the required "Explore" tab and click on the "Download CSV" button. The download is being prepared and the snackbar informs you when the download is ready.

  2. Click on "Download Now" to download the Exploration CSV file. The file is now available according to your download configuration, e.g. in the download folder.

Download Limitations#

Note that the maximum download size is limited to 1 GB per default. This limit can be changed on the 'Snowflake Settings' page by an Admin. Due to Snowflake file size limitations, this limit should not be set over 5 GB.

Sending CSV Emails#

To provide data for others, you can send the dataset via email:

  • via an ad-hoc email
  • via a scheduled email

Sending a Single CSV Email#

You can also share your transformation results via email out of the Data Grid:

  1. In the Data Grid, click on the "Preview" tab, click on the "Share" button and select "Send Email". The dialog 'Send CSV via Email' opens.

  2. Enter the email recipient(s), optionally a subject and an additional message and confirm with "Send". The email is sent to all recipients.

Scheduling a CSV Email#

You can also schedule sending an email with CSV data sets. This can be useful e.g. when planning to send the transformation results once a week. Scheduled emails are displayed as an email node in the Flow Area:

To schedule an email:

  1. In the Data Grid, click on the "Preview" tab, click on the "Share" button and select "Schedule Email".. The dialog 'Configure Scheduled Email' opens.

  2. Enter the email recipient(s), select the mailing schedule, enter an optional subject and message and click on "Apply". Your configuration has been saved and the email will be send according to your scheduling. The snack bar displays the email scheduling confirmation. An email node appears in the Flow Area.

Scheduling Options#

Once an email is scheduled, you can modify, pause or delete the schedule:

  • via a schedule node's context menu

  • from the 'Scheduled Shares' tab

Sending Email Limitations#

  • Note that the maximum file size for sending an email is limited to 25 MB per default. This limit can be changed on the 'Snowflake Settings' page by an Admin but should not beyond 25 MB and would lead to errors in this case.

  • When a dataset has zero data and you want to send the empty dataset via email once oder scheduled, you get an error message displayed that the query returned no data. The recipient receives an email that the dataset contains zero results.
