There are multiple locations inside and outside the ThoughtSpot application where you can get more help. This page describes some of the ways to get more help inside or outside of the application interface.
Each version of ThoughtSpot has its own documentation set. ThoughtSpot releases
new documentation sets for every major release version (
x.y) of ThoughtSpot.
Documentation features added with minor versions (
x.y.z) are added to the
corresponding major release. This means, for example, that new documentation
for the 6.0.1 minor release version appears in the 6.0 major version documentation.
You can navigate directly to this documentation site on the web by entering docs.thoughtspot.com in your browser’s address bar. You can see the documentation for the latest version of the product, and for other versions.
You can navigate to this documentation from inside the ThoughtSpot application as well. In this case, the application links directly to the documentation version that matches your product version. Click the help icon next to your profile, and select Help.
