WP Data Access > Data Explorer > Manage > Settings

This is a very powerful feature which allows plugin users to add a layer around a table or view. Settings defined for a table or view are available to all plugin tools (Data Explorer, Data Publisher, Data Projects and Project Templates). For example, if you change the column labels of a specific table, these labels are used in the Data Explorer, Data Projects and Data Publications. This allows you to manage table and views settings at one central location (see image below – click to enlarge).

Some settings require a premium license.

    Best regards,

  2. Hi Igor,

    There is a full translation package for the Data Publisher. You can change the publication language in your plugin settings as explained here:

    To change the language used in the dashboard you would need a plugin translation. Plugin translations can be found here:

    The Potuguese translation is not yet completed, but it might be sufficient for your use case. And you can of course add your own contribution. 🙂

    Hope this helps,
