Getting Started Training Sessions

We've broken down our New User training session in to helpful bitesize videos. It's recommended you follow these in order 1-10, followed by Filter Builder and Dataset Builder. Then move on to look at Compare and Collaborate. These will give you a useful start in using the Spend Analysis section of the Observatory.

If after watching these videos you have any questions, please reach out to us at
