Disable automatic selection of chart type

You can prevent ThoughtSpot from recommending other chart options or configurations while you search. For example, if you want to view an Answer as a line chart, you can lock that display and stop ThoughtSpot from recommending an alternative visualization, such as a funnel or pie chart. A lock persists as you make changes to the columns in your Answer, and persists if you save the Answer and come back to it later.

To disable auto-selection of chart types:

  1. Pick the chart type you want to use for your visualization.

  2. Click the change visualization icon Chart icon image at the upper right to open the chart catalog.

  3. In the lower right corner of the Chart menu, turn off automatically select my chart.
