A typical interactivity may look like the app you are now looking at. It would consist of:
In this first task our objective is to understand how to work with input data tables. This app has two data table areas. The one to the left (which is now highlighted) is a data input area. There is also a data output on the right, which we will explore in another task. In this simplified rendition the input data consists of only two columns, an exposure ID and an exposure amount. The numbers in the exposure column are italicized. This means that the data in this column are editable. You can click on any of the values and adjust it. Why don't you go ahead and try it out!
Here is a list of points to remember about input data tables:
Once you know how to adjust input tabular data by direct editing you can move on to the next task: Alternative ways to adjust data
In the second task we look into alternative ways of modifying the inputs to the app. Here we have set of slider inputs (highlighted). These sliders are in this instance bound to the first four values of the exposures table. Go ahead, try out modifying the slider settings and observe the changes in the page.

Finally in the next task we use further controls to actually calculate something and look at the outcome
In the final task we look at the last element required for using this particular app, which involves using controls to calculate or restart and output elements reporting the results. The relevant elements are again highlighted. At the lower left corner we have the execution controls. In this case this is simply a "calculate" button that uses the current dataset to calculate certain metrics. The outcomes are shown in the outputs box in the upper right corner. If you really have not pressed the calculate button so far you are hereby granted permission to do so!
