On Columns, we support you and your team share the same workspace, if you are admin you can manage members as well. In addition to team management, there are a few team features to mention here as well.


Either you are part of a team or you're an admin of a specific team, you can always find team resources in your profile. Hover over your avatar, click Profile, in your profile page, you will find "Teams" section:

  1. Here you can switch current profile to your personal or any team workspace.
  2. If you're admin, you will see all managed teams listed under "Manage team".

Team management

In team management, you can maintain several metadata for your company, such as name, description, logo, domain, etc. In addition, you can configure a few useful integrations, such as

  1. SSO (SAML or OAUTH) - single sign on is common for enterprise do software integrations.
  2. Snowflake integration - support custom oauth integration with Snowflake. (contact us for other cloud DB integrations).

Also, you can easily add or remove team members for your team while maintaining the provisioned number of seats. Team Management

Resource visibility

Resource visibility is flag value you can set in your team page. Currently it has two values:

  1. public: every team member can see data and visual stories created by other members in the team.
  2. private: each team member can only see their own resources.

This settings can only be turn on/off by team admin. Though a team can have multiple members, you can still choose this to isolated individual's resources.

Snowflake OAuth

If you have snowflake integration in your team settings, you can easily use snowflake through OAuth, here are the simple steps:

  1. Connect new data -> Snowflake -> Connect
  2. In the credential window, choose “OAUTH”, if you already authorized, the credential info will be filled by Columns, just click “Connect”, you should stop here for this case and start using snowflake.
  3. For the first time, you will see “Sign in Snowflake” link above “OAuth Token”
  4. Click the link, it will navigate you to Snowflake log in page, you may use SSO there as well to finish your authentication
  5. Once it’s authenticated, you shall be redirected to Columns which will save your auth state in Columns and then you can go to #1 again and finish at #2.

Once you connected to your snowflake, you can start use SQL to define a new Columns data source.
