Networks

In order to give you an introduction to Qatium, we created a demo model where you can explore the various functionalities, before importing your own network. After importing your network, it will be displayed alongside the demo model. You can have as many networks as you want and they might not fit on a single page, hence the page selector to go to another page.

You can also sort them by last accessed, name, most recent, and most used, to help you get to your desired network more quickly.

You can rename, download and delete your network directly from the workspace view. The buttons will appear when hovering on the network tile.

Workspaces

You can have access to as many workspace as required, contact Q to request a shared workspace. To change workspace, click on the workspace selector and select the workspace in the drop-down.

Imports

You can import networks by clicking on one of the two buttons highlighted above. You can also drag and drop your network directly and the import process will start automatically.

For more information on the importing process, please visit our Creating Models section.
