Liveboard tabs

You may want to separate your Liveboard into multiple tabs, grouping certain visualizations together in each tab. For example, you may have a Sales Liveboard that contains top-level KPIs and more detailed charts. You can create a tab for the top-level KPIs for executives to view, and a tab for the more detailed charts that managers need to monitor. To add tabs, select the Edit button at the top right of the Liveboard, and select + Add tab in the top menu.

Liveboard with tabs

To share a tab, you must share the entire Liveboard. Refer to Share a Liveboard. However, tabs have their own URL, so you can copy the URL to a specific tab to send to someone.

Adding tabs

To add new tabs to a Liveboard, you must first be in Edit mode. Note that a Liveboard can have a maximum of 20 tabs.

  1. Select the Edit button at the top right of the Liveboard.

  2. Select + Add tab in the top menu.

  3. If the Liveboard already has at least one tab, the new tab appears, with no visualizations in it yet. If the Liveboard does not have any tabs yet, the new tab contains all the visualizations currently in the Liveboard.

  4. Name the tab. If the name is more than 30 characters, the entire name does not appear. ThoughtSpot cuts it off with an ellipsis. You can copy and paste small images or icons to make the tab names more descriptive.

    You can add html to the tab name. For example, you can add icons to the tab name: <img src="kpi-logo.png" alt="Key performance indicators logo"> KPIs. For more information, see Customize titles and descriptions with HTML.
