Did You Know? Uploading a File is Optional

Our Did You Know series brings some of Initial State’s amazing features to attention while giving tips and tricks on how to make the most of them.

Did you know that you can use Initial State’s data visualization apps without the data you want to visualize ever leaving your computer?  Just reveal your log shelf and click “Add a New Log File”.  Select the file you want to visualize and uncheck the “Upload Log” checkbox at the bottom of the Log Settings window.  Click “Add Log” and use Initial State to explore your data just as you usually would.  The big difference here is that you can literally unplug your internet connection and still visualize and play with your data.

You will keep all of Initial State’s functionality while being able to access all of your data until you try to refresh the browser page.  Your super-secret-file bucket will disappear and no one will ever know how close you are to creating a functioning lightsaber.*

*Not even us, though we’d love to trade favors and be your beta testers

Of course, if you want to stream anything to Initial State, you’ll need to turn the internet back on!
