Basic Pinboard usage
Create a new Pinboard to group and manage related search results. Pinboards are the ThoughtSpot term for a dashboard.
Pinboards act like live dashboards. They are collections of your related charts, tables, and headline.
You can pin charts and tables to any Pinboard that you created, and the Pinboards that have been shared with you with the Edit privilege. When you create a Pinboard, you can share it with other people with either the View or Edit privilege. Pinboards are interactive, allowing you to perform actions like filtering, excluding values, and drill down on the visualizations.
Create a Pinboard
To create a Pinboard:
Select Pinboards, on the top navigation bar.
Select + New Pinboard on the Pinboards list page.
In the New Pinboard dialog box, give your Pinboard a name and description. Then click Create.
Add an Answer to a Pinboard

Download a Pinboard as a PDF file
You can download a Pinboard as a PDF file, without having to download each visualization separately. Downloading a Pinboard works just as it would when downloading an answer: simply click the More menu and select Download as PDF.

Export a Pinboard as a TML file
