Biz Block is a versatile analysis tool that lets users combine multiple inputs together to create multiple unique outputs.
The outputs from a Biz Block behave like a virtual sensor which is added to your system; the outputs can be then used in Charts and Dashlets. Just look for the name of your Biz Block in the lists of data sources throughout Info360 (e.g. Data Sources, Charts, Dashlets, Pattern, etc.). If you just created a new BizBlock and don't see the results in dropdown menus, refresh the page.

These are the standard Info360 tools for editing, cloning, and deleting objects.
