Familiarisation with the User Interface
This section will help to familiarize you with the Basic layout of the DataChannel Console. Knowing your way around on the console will help you access all the functionalities available to you with ease.
To access the DataChannel console, you must first have a DataChannel Account. Refer our Free Trial Account Documentation to learn how to set up your DataChannel Account. Alternatively, in case you are facing an issue, you can also get in touch with our support team to guide you through the process of setting up an account.
When you login for the first time, an Onboarding Wizard will open up to guide you through the process of setting up your first connector and Data Warehouse. Refer our Setting up your Data Warehouse Documentation to understand the process of setting up a data warehouse better.
