      Hi Alpesh,

      You can still follow these steps. Open Lumira discovery, choose your Lumira Designer application open it. Then click on New Data set icon.

      The data set you add on Discovery will be displayed as offline data source on Designer.

      Hope it helps 🙂

      Regards, Burcu.
