ThoughtSpot on mobile devices

ThoughtSpot mobile provides access to ThoughtSpot from your smart phone, iPad, or another handheld device.

With ThoughtSpot mobile app you can discover insights in seconds, from billions of rows of data, right from the palm of your hand. You can access your ThoughtSpot cluster to search answers and Liveboards. You can also create Liveboards using existing answers and use Liveboard filters.

Starting in December 2021, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards in the Mobile app. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

Sharing with deep linking

Beginning with version 2.0, you can share a link to some objects in ThoughtSpot using instant messaging or email and the recipient can open the link in the mobile app or the web. If a user has the mobile app, the link will open directly in the mobile app. If they don’t have the mobile app, they are presented with the option to download it or to view it on a Web browser.

The following objects can be opened and shared on the mobile app: answers, Liveboards, and Liveboard visualizations. However, you have to use your Web browser to open or share tables, worksheets, and SpotIQ insights.
