|Account||An account is a personal account of an individual.|
|Tenant||A tenant is the overall entity which is used to organize applications and subscriptions for an organization. Individuals can have roles in one or more tenants.|
|Subscription||A subscription belongs to a tenant and is necessary to run an application on a capacity.
|Capacity||A capacity belongs to a subscription and is the cloud hardware that is necessary to run an application.
|Application||An application is running on a (shared or dedicated) capacity and is used to organize the (on-time or revolving) collection of data for a specific usecase in an organization.
The datamodel of the application consists of fact table(s) and dimension tables.
Each data1.io showcase consists of an application and a template.
|Fact Table||A fact table belongs to the datamodel of an application and is used to store the data collected with the Excel Templates (using the write function).|
|Dimension Table||A dimension table belongs to the datamodel of an application and is used to define structures which are used in the dimension tree in the Excel Web Add-In as well as in reports to show aggregates.|
|Dimension Tree||A dimension tree is generated from a dimension table and is used in the data1.io Excel Add-In to navigate through the data structures of an application.
A collection workflow belongs to an application and is a defined time period in which a defined number of users are allowed to (and should) enter their data into the application. Every single collector user gets reminder e-mails as long as the individual data entry status is not changed from "open" to "finished". A collection workflow is defined and managed by the collection manager and his/her deputy.
There are two types of collections:
|Template||A template is an MS Excel file that is allocated to an application and which contains one or more sheets with the so-called data1.io framework definitions. The Excel spreadsheet can be configured as template for the Web Client or as template for the Excel Client.
Templates can be used in two major ways:
Synonyms: File, Document
|User||A user is an individual with a data1.io account which enables access to one or more applications and therefore can be part of a data collection process. Every user has access to the data1.io public showcases.|
A user can have one of the following four roles (= permissions) in data1.io.
A datafeed is a web-based interface in the so-called ODATA-Format in order to use the collected data of your application(s) in other (cloud-based) systems like MS Power BI.
