Datadog Notebooks enable users to collect data from across the platform into a linear, cell-based document. Notebooks help you explore your data in depth and share stories by creating postmortems, investigations, runbooks, documentation, and more.

Use Notebooks to correlate data from across the Datadog platform during a live investigation, or to document findings and solutions to share with your team. Notebooks can be edited live by multiple users in the Datadog platform, and can be exported as PDF, Markdown, or JSON to share beyond Datadog.
