Good to know (FAQ)

Here are a few important things to note about ESG reporting with Datylon.
If you still have questions, you can check out our Help Center.
What Datylon solution ESG reporting is based on?

ESG report generation works based on the Datylon Report Server solution. The Datylon Report Server is a platform that allows organizations to automate the production of charts, pages or complete reports based on graphically rich and on-brand templates created with Datylon for Illustrator.

What is the flow of creating an ESG report using Datylon?

The first step is creating templates using Datylon for the Illustrator plugin. It provides the all power of Illustrator combined with the extensive chart styling possibilities of Datylon.

The second step is exporting templates to Report Studio.

The third step is providing data to our Render Server via a custom service or application. 

After everything is set up the Render Server is ready to generate your report.

We don't have a developer in our team to set up the automatic workflow. Can your team help us?

Absolutely! We offer a range of workflow options tailored to your needs. From semi-automatic options, which allow for manual data updates, to fully customized solutions, expertly managed from start to finish by our dedicated team.

We don't have a designer on our team. Can you help us create the fully designed ESG report?

Absolutely! Our team is equipped with experts in graphic design, report creation, and data visualization design, ready to assist in crafting the complete design of your report and selecting the perfect visuals to effectively communicate your ideas.

Our ESG report is planned to be recurring. Does it mean that we should start from scratch every time?

No! Datylon is perfect for creating recurring reports. Once you created your templates and set up your data transformation flow, there are no limits to creating a multiple version or iterations of your report.

How can we split the work in our team using Datylon for optimizing the ESG report creation flow?

The best workflow is the following. Designers create the layout of the report and data visualizations using Datylon for Illustrator. Then export them as templates to Report Studio.

After the templates are exported to Report Studio, other specialists can update data and adjust the styling of the charts.

Developers and data engineers can set up a data pipeline to deliver the data to the Render Server.

Note that any of these tasks can be also performed on our side.

What about my privacy?

We take data security and privacy issues very seriously. Please check our privacy policy to learn more.

Is my data secure?

We store your data and visualizations in the Illustrator .ai files you edit. Your data and visualizations are not sent over the internet and the .ai file will be the only place where your data and visualizations are stored which means you have full data security control.

We need an internet connection to validate and activate your Datylon for Illustrator license when you start using Datylon for Illustrator for the first time. Thereafter no internet connection is needed anymore and Datylon for Illustrator will function without an internet connection till your license expires after which a new license check over the internet is needed.

If you save your data, charts or designs on Datylon's online dataviz platform, it will belong only to your account and you will have full control over it. We will treat your data as confidential while our system keeps all online user data in secure servers.

If you publish a project on our online dataviz platform, it can be accessed through a direct link with a unique ID. If you want to make sure nobody finds your visualizations, keep them unpublished and download them as PDFs, SVGs or images for private use.
