Create Data Table card (Community Card)
This article provides the instructions to creating data cards with charts, tables, and graphs. These cards, also categorized as Community Cards, are basic cards that are created by Appspace but will be customized according to your needs by a third-party community developer using Appspace card APIs.
Data type cards such as the Data Table card, Donut Chart card, and Line Chart card, allow you to import data from external spreadsheets/documents and display customized charts, graphs, and tables.
The Donut Chart and Line Chart (Community Cards) have been deprecated. If you would like to create a card with a donut chart, pleaser refer to our new Create Data Visualization card article.
Community cards will be turned off by default. Contact us to learn more about our developer community.

Cards are only supported on devices with the Appspace App. To ensure your device is compatible, please refer to the Supported Card Types section in the Compare device media player capabilities article.
