News, Updates & Tips

Embed Whole Public Dashboards & Stories

You can now embed whole public dashboards & stories as fully interactive embeds off the Iowa Data Poral. Users can instantly engage with your content, on your own department's website for instance, without being directed back to the data portal. This will help increase engagement with and time on your dashboards and stories. You can find the story’s URL in the “Share and Embed” option in the story’s edit mode Menu panel. When using this functionality, verify the embed code is pointing to the public data portal at data.iowa.gov, not the internal portal.

Copy & Paste Content Blocks in Stories


Users can now copy and paste media content blocks within their story on the Iowa Data Portal. This new functionality decreases the amount of time spent creating, adding or editing media, especially visualizations, in Stories. Drafting new content just became easier.

Improved Print Story Functionality


The ability to print dashboards and stories within the Iowa Data Portal has been improved. Now, when you print out your Story, all content is rendered within the content blocks, visually aligned on the page, and the Action bar is removed from the printed format. This makes grabbing a snapshot of your interactive dashboard or story much easier
