    Don’t worry about this being perfect; you can change it later!

  5. If you have the data on your computer, either locate it or just drag the file to your window.
  6. Ensure your data looks good. If so, hit "Save."

  8. Select "Save."
  9. Ready to go? Select "Publish" to select the audience for your data, then select "Publish" again.
  10. You’re done!
