Share Meta Data with Users

When sharing local and state assessments, the Illuminate system admin may determine what categories and columns can be viewed by users when creating custom reports. The system admin may also modify the titles of the categories and fields so that it displays the way a district would like them to appear. This lesson will show how to share/unshare this data and how to customize the titles.
