  5. Share your dataset with specific people.
  6. Delete your dataset.
  7. Enter a simple language description of your dataset. This is particularly helpful when making public or sharing with others.
  8. Edit an existing query to create a new query.
  9. Create a new dataset by editing the query of an existing dataset.
  10. After editing your query, click Run Query to see new results.

  13. Derive: Create a new dataset by selecting data in an existing dataset and join two or more datasets together.
