Delete objects from home page

You can now delete answers and Liveboards directly from the list on the home page, as well as from the Answers and Liveboards tabs. To delete an answer or Liveboard from the home page, scroll down the list or search tags and author name to select the object name. After clicking the checkbox to the left of the object name, click the Delete button that appears.

Choose sources limitation

You can no longer select more than 100 data sources to search on when searching data. This maximum of 100 sources improves performance and limits timeouts due to the selection of too many sources. For more information, see Choose a data source.


Other features and enhancements

You can now import TML files that contain certain errors. During the import process, ThoughtSpot removes the part of the object that contains errors, and allows you to import the rest of the object. For more information, see Scriptability.
