View or edit a formula in an answer

Starting in December 2021, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.
The new formula editor is part of the new answer experience. The new answer experience is on by default. If you have the new answer experience on, the new version of the Formula Editor appears when you add a formula to a search, but not when you add a formula to a worksheet. You can turn the new answer experience on or off individually from the Experience manager panel in your profile. If that option is not available, contact your administrator.

You can always go back and view or edit a formula that was added to an answer. Anyone who has edit privileges on an answer can also edit any formulas it contains. To view or edit an existing formula in an answer:

  1. Navigate to the answer whose formula you would like to edit. If the answer is within a Liveboard, select the ellipsis menu icon more 10px for that answer and click Edit.

  2. Open the Data panel from the upper right corner of the Search page. Expand the Formulas section in the Data panel. You can see a list of all the formulas in the answer.

  3. Click the edit icon icon edit 10px next to the formula name.

  4. View or edit your formula in the Formula Editor.

    Use the Formula Editor
    Formula elements are color-coded by type and can include the formula operators and functions (blue), the names of columns (purple), and/or constants (black).
  5. If you edited your formula, click Save to save your changes. Otherwise, click Cancel.
