Overview

The Overview tab displays the Destinations dashboard, providing key metrics related your organization’s destination data. To learn more, visit the Destinations dashboard guide.

NOTE

If your organization is new to Experience Platform and does not yet have active destinations, the Destinations dashboard and Overview tab are not visible. Instead, selecting Destinations from the left navigation displays the Catalog tab.

Catalog

The Catalog tab displays a list of all destinations available in Platform, that you can send data to.

The Platform user interface provides several search and filter options on the destinations catalog page:

  • Select to view Connections and/or Extensions. To understand the difference between the two categories, see Destination Types and Categories.
