2. What do you mean by 'Users' in the pricing plan?

Anyone to whom you privately share your workspace, tables (data), reports and dashboards, created in Zoho Analytics, for collaboration is considered a 'User' in Zoho Analytics. A user is identified by his/her unique email address, with which their Zoho Analytics account was registered.

In Zoho Analytics, a row or record is defined in the same context as in a workspace (or spreadsheet). In simple terms, a table consists of rows (records) and columns (fields). Each row in a table represents a set of related data and has the same structure. For example, in a table that represents "Invoices", each row would represent a single invoice record. The number of rows calculated for pricing is the sum of all rows/records stored across all your workspace tables in your Zoho Analytics account.
