  10. Destination: Users must enter the name for their table in Panoply.

  11. Click Save Changes and then click Collect.

  • The data source appears grayed out while the collection runs.
  • You may add additional data sources while this collection runs.
  • You can monitor this collection from the Jobs page or the Data Sources page.
  • After a successful collection, navigate to the Tables page to review the data results.

This is all that is necessary to start collecting your data by SFTP, however there are a number of Advanced Settings you can use to customize your data source. We do not recommend changing Advanced Settings unless you are an experienced Panoply user.
