Frequently asked questions

  • Q: Why are the number of transactions requested not the same in the synthetic data generated?
    Ans: The approach to generating synthetic data is such that the generator makes a best attempt to come close to that number. If the requested number of transactions are more than 10,000 then this difference will be relatively lower.

  • Q: The demo becomes unresponsive after sometime. Is there something wrong ?
    Ans: This demo uses a basic version of shinyapps server that gives the author limited time budget to run the app. As a courtesy to other users attempting to use the demo, the author chose to stop the session after a few seconds of inactivity. Refresh the page again to continue using the demo.

  • Q: When I click the octocat or document icons on the menu bar of the app, the app becomes unresponsive. What do I do?
    Ans: These icons are present for the users who access the demo from shinyapps server. Please do not use these icons. Incase of mistaken use, please refresh the webpage and continue to use the demo .

  • Q: Can I use this app for commercial puposes?
    Ans: Yes. Please read the license for more details.
