Starting in May 2022, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

ThoughtSpot enables you to view and analyze your data through a search-based user interface. You can create your searches quickly and easily, just by typing them into a search bar, like you do when using an Internet search engine. ThoughtSpot makes it easy to see your data, get your questions answered, create interactive graphs, and customize Liveboards. You don’t need to understand how ThoughtSpot stores information, attend days of training, or know SQL to do these things. Collaboration and security features make it easy to protect sensitive data, and safely share information with others.

ThoughtSpot gives administrators the ability to modify data properties to meet business needs. Administrators can specify search synonyms for common terms, boost the importance of a column in search results, or format how the data appears. So, if you are not getting the answers you expect when using ThoughtSpot, check with your ThoughtSpot administrator to see if some settings can be changed.
