This is the first in a series of articles exploring portions of the new Claris Platform. Launched in September 2022, this is just the beginning of the journey! Curious souls that we are, many question arise, and these articles are meant to supplement what we’ve seen so far, and perhaps give some different perspectives, along with plenty of screen shots. Concentration in these articles will be on Claris Studio and its relationship with Claris Pro.

What is Claris Studio?
Claris Studio is a cloud-based (access through a web browser) editor and data browser. A Claris ID is used to login and teams can be invited to join (by Claris ID). Access to view or edit can be constrained by inviting team members to Hubs with shared Views. The editor can create: Forms, Spreadsheets (tables), List-Detail Views, Dashboards (with charts and summary data), and Kanban Views. Some basic Views are preset for you to use as examples when you first start. There are many tooltip hints and popover & other dialogs to assist you along the way.
