  • Easily share connectors will colleagues to facilitate their work.
  • Publish and refresh data to JMP Live using configurations that are compatible with both Mac and Windows.

Platform Presets

When you have customized a report to your liking (including colors, axis settings, red triangle options), you can capture those customizations for use with future launches of the same platform. JMP includes a set of popular platform presets, or you can save your own preferred configuration as a preset for any data table or set of columns.
