ThoughtSpot has many different ways to help you visualize your data.
When you ask a question, ThoughtSpot will initially choose to show your answer either as a table or chart.
You can always see your data as a table, or switch between the different charts.
ThoughtSpot has sixteen different charts, but sometimes your search can only be represented by SOME of the charts.
Charts that are grayed out cannot be used with your search. You can see what sort of information a grayed out chart needs by hovering over it.
For example, a bubble chart needs at least one attribute and two measures. Attributes are text data like a name. Measures are numeric data like counts, dollar amounts, or measurements.
Therefore, you would need two measures, such as “price per fruit” and “quantity bought” and one attribute, such as type of “fruit”.
Once you’ve selected your chart, you can configure it to best show your data. You can reorganize the way the data is shown on the chart by changing the chart axes. Here you can decide which data you want on the x and y axes as well as what should be used as the legend.
If your chart has a legend, you can click on different attributes to hide them from your chart. and you can change the color used to show an attribute.You can choose to show data labels, or select an area to zoom into. Once your chart looks just the way you like, you can download your chart as an image, or add it to a pinboard.
