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


To make modeling settings for a table you've just loaded, or to make a quick change to existing settings, use the ThoughtSpot web interface. You can adjust the Columns settings from the data management listing.

You can change all the same data model settings here as in the model file. This method is easier and faster, unless you need to make many settings in bulk. In that case, using the model file is recommended.

Click on the Data icon, to get to the data management listing. Then click on the name of your data source.

This brings up the Columns screen, where you'll make your modeling settings. Modify the column settings by clicking on them, typing or selecting the setting you want, and then saving your changes. Descriptions of the different settings are listed in Data modeling settings.
