Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started For the free, public service, the included onboarding assistance is limited to a brief introductory tutorial provided remotely. This can be supplemented using the companion Plotly Data Visualisation service, which can provide early design and training assistance.
Service documentation Yes
Documentation formats HTML
End-of-contract data extraction For the free, public service, all data must be uploaded to the online service. The original copy of the data used will remain on the user's desktop. There is therefore no need to extract the data as it always resides on the desktop. Alternatively, it may be re-downloaded using the built in data download capability.
End-of-contract process The public service is not time limited, so the contract never ends. A user can delete their account at any time. If they wish to retain a copy of the published charts prior to account deletion, then they can download the published charts prior to account deletion.

Designed for use on mobile devices Yes
Differences between the mobile and desktop service All standard features of the desktop service are available on mobile devices. The presentation and navigation of features is reformatted to provide a mobile-friendly experience for smaller screen sizes. Some design and administration features may be more difficult, or not available on mobile devices. Services may be configured for access over the public internet, or restricted to public sector networks. Mobile devices must be able to access services via the same network routes as desktop or laptop devices.
Accessibility standards None or don’t know
Description of accessibility The plotly.js library is built using core web technologies: HTML, CSS, Javascript, and is fully open source, so it is possible to extend the library capability to include accessible features. At this time, the project considers such additions out of core scope: "Plotly.js' main focus is on plotting the data and exposing an interface to view it. Specific key events should be managed by the consumers of plots, that is the webpages they are embedded in."
Accessibility testing No specific accessibility testing performed to date.
