There are two different toggles for each new experience in this section. The first toggle, New [ answer | SpotIQ ] experience, turns on the ability to opt into the new experience for any user. The second toggle, Make new [ answer | SpotIQ ] experience default, turns the new experience on by default.
You can turn the new answer and SpotIQ experiences on or off globally, and specify the default answer and SpotIQ experiences for all users. For example, you can turn the new answer experience on globally and make it the default experience, and turn the new SpotIQ experience on globally, but keep the classic SpotIQ experience the default, allowing users to opt into the new SpotIQ experience.
|The new SpotIQ experience depends on the new answer experience. To enable the new SpotIQ experience, you must first enable the new answer experience.|
To manage the new answer and SpotIQ experiences, follow these steps:
Select the Edit button in the ThoughtSpot Experiences section.
Enable or disable the new answer and/ or SpotIQ experiences.
If you enable the new answer or SpotIQ experiences, you can specify whether they should be on by default for all users, or if they should have to opt in.
For example, to display the new answer experience to all users, enable the new answer experience toggle, then enable the Make new answer experience default toggle.
To display the classic answer experience to all users, but allow them to turn the new experience on for themselves in their profile, enable the new answer experience toggle, then disable the Make new answer experience default toggle.
|The visualization footer feature is part of the new answer experience, which is in Beta and off by default. You can turn it on from your profile. If you are using the classic experience, you cannot set a standard download footer. The footer appears only in downloaded answers, not in downloaded Liveboards.|
Specify the footer that appears in all downloaded answers. Use this functionality to add a confidentiality disclaimer, for example.
To edit the standard footer for downloaded answers, follow these steps:
Select the Edit button in the Visualization section.
Edit the text box next to Downloaded file instructions with the text you would like to appear in the footer, up to 700 characters.
The default footer is Disclaimer: The information downloaded is confidential.
