4. Add users who need to access the raw data in Data Studio in order to create or modify reports.  These are referred to as "report authors" in Data Studio. They do not need to be Analytics Canvas licensed users.

5. If the dataset is large (more than 1M rows), choose the Advanced Tab to enable dimensional caching. This can speed up reports for all users who access them. Details on Dimensional Caching can be found here.

7. There are two ways to create or update the table.  The first is to click the centre of a single Data Studio export block, then choose "Write Output" to publish data to the table.  

The second way is to Run the Canvas by clicking the play button.  This refreshes all datasets and processes all outputs on the Canvas.
