What is an attachment and where I can find it?

An attachment can be any content created in Superset or pulled from your Tableau account. To attach content you simply click into to the search bar and either enter a keyword to find what you’re looking or use the pop-up content browser.

Attachment Types

There are four different types of attachments, that may be converted to a variety of file formats. All attachments types As you combine more types of attachments things become more complex. This Table displays the five types of attachments and the formats they can be converted to.
