This will allow you to reduce the need to jump from tool to tool, reducing the amount of time spent on workflows.

Your permissions in Secoda will control what metadata you can see and edit when using the extension in other supported tools. For example, viewers in Secoda will not be able to push any edits.

    Highlight the text that you'd like to search for on the page that you're viewing
