Description of Create a new list: Click the <b>New List</b> button to start the process of creating a new list.. Description of Give a name to your list: <p>A dialog box will appear, requesting that you give a name to your list. </p><p>This step is <i>optional </i>- you can key in the name of your list and click <b>Done</b>, or you may click <b>Skip this step</b> and rename your list later on ( in this case, the system will merely assign a temporary name, such 'List 1' ,to your list ).</p>. Description of New dataset for your list: <p>Congratulations - your list is now created. Now, it needs data. RList will ask you how you will like to add data to your new list. </p><p>Click on the <span style="font-weight: 700;">New Dataset </span>button. You will see three options : (a) Create an empty dataset, (b) Create dataset by modifying practice dataset template and (c) Create dataset by importing data.</p><p>As the name suggests, <font color="#0000ff">Create an empty dataset</font> merely creates a list with no data. You will need to add data yourself later on. </p><p><font color="#0000ff">Create dataset by modifying practice dataset template</font> populates a list with data from a practice dataset. Instead of adding data, you can modify the pre-populated data to your needs.</p><p><font color="#0000ff">Create dataset by importing data</font> allows you to populate a list by importing data from a CSV file (a file with comma-separated values). If you have an existing CSV file, you will be able to populate the list with data very quickly via importing.</p><p>Notice that there is another button <font color="#0000ff">Connect to an existing dataset</font>. If you have one or more existing datasets, you can choose to connect to any of the existing datasets instead of creating a new dataset. If you do not have any existing dataset at the moment, this button will appear disabled. </p><p>For simplicity of this tutorial, select <b>Create dataset by modifying practice dataset template</b>.</p><p>If you see a prompt asking "<span style="background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);"><font color="#0000ff">Do you wish to create a new dataset for this list ?</font></span>", click <b>Yes</b>.</p>. Description of Practice dataset created: <p>Now, your dataset is now populated with a few data items from the practice dataset template - in this case, a list of fruit types. </p><p><font color="#0000ff">Renaming the dataset</font> is optional generally; the purpose of renaming the dataset is to help you to identify the dataset if you wish to select the dataset for editing in your dashboard view or connect another list to the dataset later on.</p><p>Now that our dataset is populated, click <b>Back to list</b> at the top-right corner of the screen.</p>. Description of Publish the list: <p>On clicking <b>Back to List</b>, you will reach the list editor view.</p><p> </p><p>To rename your list, click the <b>Edit </b>link at the top of the screen, next to the current list title.</p><p>To add a description to the list, click the <b>Edit </b>button near to the description input box.</p><p>Otherwise, you are ready to publish this list. Scroll downwards towards the Publish section. You will see a red button <b>Publish</b>. Click it.</p>. Description of Prompt before you publish: A prompt will appear - confirming if you wish to publish your list with the permalink. Click <b>Yes</b>.. Description of Acknowledgement message after you publish: <p>You will see an acknowledgement message that your list has been published successfully and that your list will not appear in the public galleries until it has been reviewed.</p><p>What this means is that your list is still published and is accessible at a public URL. It is just that it will not appear or be featured in the public gallery that you see when you visit <a href="https://rlist.io" target="_blank" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">https://rlist.io</a> . </p><p>As you are a beginner curator, the moderators will take some time to fully review your first few lists and add them to the public gallery once they are approved.</p><p>You can click <b>ok </b>to hide the message ( or it will auto-vanish after a few seconds <img src="https://assets.rlist.io/temporary/images/icnbb/emo_smiley_24.png" class="desc-emoji-icon"> )</p>. Description of Viewing your list: <p>Your list is now published and accessible online. The buttons in the Publish section have also changed. </p><p>Click <b>View </b>to view your list. The public page of the list will open in a separate tab.</p>. Description of Public view of your list: <p>Voila - your new list is now published with a <font color="#0000ff">publicly accessible URL</font>. Congratulations <img src="https://s18342852.sfo2.cdn.digitaloceanspaces.com/temporary/images/icnbb/gesture_deal_24.png" class="desc-emoji-icon">. </p><hr><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(156, 156, 148);">END OF TUTORIAL</span></p>.
