Decks are important for analysts to
- save their work for later recall
- for creating dashboards
- Export to analysis to Excel and PowerPoint
Decks are comprised of slides. Each slide is an analysis. It corresponds to one slide in a PowerPoint tile in the corresponding dashboard.
Generally, decks are created by analysts, but it can be the case that certain analyses should be "pre-saved" to a deck by a dataset setup team.
Using Script can also be a way to mass manipulate decks (eg: change the filters and weights to all slides in the deck, or to reorder slides in a particular way, etc).
