Present a Liveboard as a slideshow

The new Liveboard experience contains multiple new features and feature enhancements. It is on by default, and users can turn it on or off individually from the Experience manager panel in their profile. If you use the classic Liveboard experience in your environment, your experience may be different from the one described in this article.

With ThoughtSpot’s interactive presentations, you can easily explore and answer questions from the audience during the presentation session. When you present your Liveboard, ThoughtSpot displays the component visualizations and tables in order from left to right, and top to bottom.
