An Insights Board presents the findings from your recipe—such as visualizations, tables, and notes—in a customizable layout. It can be shared with other users in your organization and can be updated continuously if it's created on top of a live data source, such as a database.

An Insights Board is interactive and customizable. Investigate data in your charts, adjust visualizations, and page through tables just as you would in a session. You can also customize the layout of the panels within the Insights Board.

Insights Board Panels

Each chart, note, and table published to an Insights Board occupies its own panel.

Each panel can be moved around the Board and resized. To move a panel, click and hold the header, and then drag the panel to its new position. Release the mouse to drop the panel. To resize a panel, click and drag the corners or the left, right, and bottom edges.

You can also resize the panels using Layout in the sidebar by selecting from Default, Wide, and Thin layouts.

Refresh Content

Click the Refresh button to refresh your charts, tables, and notes. This reruns the underlying recipe that created the chart or table and updates it with any changes in the data. Each panel has a timestamp showing when the content was last refreshed.

You can also refresh an Insights Board from a session by entering Refresh the insights board <board> where <board> is the name of the Insights Board you want to refresh.

Automatically Refresh an Insights Board

You can schedule an Insights Board to automatically refresh at a certain time and on certain days. Note that a given Insights Board can have only four different refreshes associated with it at a given time and that each refresh must be at least an hour apart.

To schedule a refresh:

  1. Make sure you've created the Insights Board for which you want to schedule a refresh.
  2. In a session, enter Schedule the insights board refresh for <board> on <days> at <time> <timezone> where:
    • board is the name of the Insights Board.
    • days is the day or days of the week on which the Insights Board should be refreshed.
    • time is the time at which the Insights Board should be refreshed. Note that parameter uses the 24 hour format.
    • timezone is the time zone to use with the time parameter.

Reschedule a Refresh

To reschedule a scheduled refresh, enter Reschedule the insights board refresh for <board> on <days> at <time> <time zone> to <new days> at <new time> <new timezone>.

Delete a Scheduled Refresh

To delete a refresh, enter Delete the scheduled insights board refresh for <board> on <days> at <time> <time zone>.
