In an earlier post, we saw how easy it is to customize the initial state of analysis through the web link. But it’s also possible when using the desktop app as well. This post shows you how.
When Spotfire is launched with the application’s desktop shortcut, you’ll start with a blank Spotfire session after logging in. Using some additional arguments, you can automate the process of logging in and opening an analysis. Arguments can also be passed in to customize the initial state. This can be helpful for sharing your work with others, or just for creating multiple desktop shortcuts to help improve efficiency.
Here are a few examples to show some of the common automated capabilities. I’ve included reference links below to assist with more advanced capabilities.
