Training SearchIQ ensures a good natural language search experience.
SearchIQ is in Beta.
|SearchIQ is turned off by default. ThoughtSpot Support can enable it for you. SearchIQ is only available in English.|
We bundle SearchIQ with a set of pre-defined templates that help it understand natural language, and return the best possible answers. You can also add your own templates for each data source, and teach it new language interpretations:
Select a saved answer.
Click one of the drop-down phrases that shows how SearchIQ interprets the search terms, and click Teach.
We recommend that you train SearchIQ by performing at least 50 natural language searches. This teaches SearchIQ how to map common questions to relevant entities. Use points described in Teach SearchIQ for any unexpected answers.
When SearchIQ returns a satisfactory table or chart, remember to click the Looks Good button to provide the necessary feedback.
Example 1: where are the best sales
In this example, the query returned a very good answer, by interpreting where as Store City and best as sort by Sales. The chart Looks Good, and this is valuable feedback for training SearchIQ.
Example 2: which state has the lowest volume
In this example, the query returned a very good answer, by interpreting lowest as sort by Quantity and volume as Quantity. This chart also Looks Good, and provides valuable feedback for training SearchIQ.
