4: Intro to Pinboards

About this course

Pinboards are the ThoughtSpot term for a dashboard, a collection of related visualizations presented together to tell a compelling story with your data. Pinboards are easy to build and then share with others, show during a presentation, and deliver via email to a group of individuals on a regular schedule. This course will introduce you to the Pinboard creation process. Once visualizations have been added to a Pinboard, you will learn how to re-position and re-size them and use features like titles to make that content is clear. We will demonstrate adding filters to the overall Pinboard, manipulating data in the visualizations, and using Present Mode to showcase the data in a boardroom setting. The course will conclude with an overview of Pinboard scheduling.

Topics covered

  • Defining Pinboards
  • Editing the Pinboard layout
  • Adding a Filter to a Pinboard
  • Manipulating Pinboard data
  • Using Present Mode
  • Scheduling Pinboard delivery
