Sharing and embedding

Sharing

Admins can control how members of their organization are able to share reports both internally and externally:

  1. Navigate to the Mode home page, click on your name in the upper left corner of the screen and click

    Organization Settings

    from the dropdown menu.
  2. Click on

    Sharing & Embedding

    under Features.

Adjust the toggles next to each of the following options and click

Save settings

when you are done to confirm:

Allow External Sharing of reports

Disabled by default. External sharing must be enabled in Organization Settings before anyone can share reports outside of your organization. Enabling external sharing in Organization Settings will

not

cause any reports or data to be shared; external sharing must be enabled for each individual report.

Disabling this setting will immediately cause all external links to all reports in your organization to stop functioning and return a 404 - Not Found error. Any reports which previously had external sharing enabled will therefore become inaccessible to viewers who are not logged in members of your organization.

If you are an admin of Mode's paid plan organization and you do not see the setting to enable External Sharing, it may not be included as part of your paid agreement. Contact our success team to learn more.

Allow data previews, PDFs, and CSVs to be included in emails and Slack messages

Enabled by default. When disabled, report image previews will no longer appear the message bodies of Slack or Email shares, and reports shared via email can no longer contain attached PDFs or CSVs.

Allow users to access and move reports into your organization's Community space

Disabled by default. Enable to make the community Collection visible to all members of your organization and allow users to move reports into it. Hiding the community Collection will not delete reports already inside it. Reports already in the community Collection will still exist and will be available via URL or discoverable through Mode search. However, members will not be able to move any new reports into the community Collection.

Require transport encryption for emails

Disabled by default. Enable this feature to prevent Mode from being able to send emails related to your organization, such as when members share via email, to servers that don’t have transport encryption enabled.

Embedding

White-Label Embed signature tokens

You must use a valid signature token for your Mode organization to successfully generate a signature for a White-Label Embed URL. Signature tokens can only be created by an organization admin. To create or modify a signature token:

New signature token

  1. Navigate to the Mode home page, click on your name in the upper left corner of the screen and click

    Organization Settings

    from the dropdown menu.
  2. Click on

    Sharing & Embedding

    under Features.
  3. Click on the

    Embedding

    tab.
  4. To create a new signature token, enter a unique name and click

    Create token

    . The new token's public

    access key

    and private

    access secret

    will appear.
  5. To rename or invalidate a signature token, click

    Edit

    next to it in the list.

WARNING

: Remember to store the access secret securely. Do not expose the access secret on public sites, in client-side code, or in public code repositories.

Slack integration

The Mode Slack app enables members of your organization to share reports via Slack directly from Mode.
