The Sentinel Visualizer Knowledge Base is built on the belief that shared information is better information. The system is fully multi-user capable, and allows you to build reports and presentations. Sharing data within Sentinel Visualizer is automatic - users have access to information through a secure logon environment.

Reader users can view the chart and drill-down to the data behind the chart including metadata, notes, topics, documents and information on the Brief tab, but they cannot modify the data.
