Hide a column


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


You can hide columns from users in ThoughtSpot without dropping them from the database. This is common when the data contains identifier columns that are used to join tables, but which do not have any meaning to users.

By default, all columns in a data source will be shown in ThoughtSpot. To hide the column names, change the Hidden setting.

As the number of columns in the dataset increases, the search experience requires more effort. Users have to navigate through larger numbers of columns to choose the correct one. There might also be some columns in the dataset that you don’t want to expose to the users. To hide these columns, you can set the value of the Hidden column to YES.

  1. Find the Hidden setting for the column you want to hide, and set its value to YES.
    If you are editing the model file, use the Hide setting, and set it to TRUE.
  2. Save your changes.
