Public name and description
A dataset's public name and description is a human-readable identifier for the dataset. You can use the public name and description to tell datasets apart, particularly when you're using Dataset Manager.
- The public name is a brief title for your dataset, which you'll use to identify it in Dataset Manager. Something like
Active customer accountsis ideal.
- The optional public description is simply a free-text explanation of what the dataset is for.
You specify the public name and (optionally) public description when you create the dataset using Dataset Manager. You can also use Dataset Manager to change them at any time.
If you give another user a permission to query the dataset, they will be able to see its public name and description.
