3 features in mySidewalk to make your data pop and your story stick

At mySidewalk, we know how hard it can be to craft an engaging story with data. Sure, if you had time to experiment, you could do it (and even enjoy the process!) but the reality is, all you really have time for is to share a stat or spreadsheet—and hope people just get it.
