ThoughtSpot Analytics lets you use search to create charts and visualizations from spreadsheet data.

ThoughtSpot Analytics is a Microsoft Excel Data Visualization tool that makes it easy to create visualizations and charts from your Microsoft Excel data. Say goodbye to VLOOKUPS.

The goal of ThoughtSpot Analytics is to give every Microsoft Excel user the ability to search to create charts, graphs, tables, and data visualizations easily and make it FUN to explore your spreadsheet data.

ThoughtSpot Analytics is FREE - for everyone.

Here’s what you can do with ThoughtSpot Analytics:

⇨No data modeling is required

⤏Upon launch, the app automatically reads, understands, and categorizes your data into different types (DATES, MEASURES, ATTRIBUTES) all in a friendly modal that sits right on top of your Sheet so it's easy to explore.

⇨Query your data with search

⤏To do this you can either use the search bar, or click the columns available to you on the left-hand side of the screen. You also have access to native keywords like [top], [bottom], as well as ways to freely and naturally express dates on the fly like [daily, weekly, last 2 weeks, etc]

⇨Drill anywhere

⤏Say goodbye to VLOOKUPS; ThoughtSpot Analytics makes this easy. The search engine includes a powerful, but lightweight SQL engine under the hood to make it easy for the user to drill anywhere in the data.

Once ThoughtSpot Analytics is launched and you begin your search query, simply right-click on any point for the chart you want to investigate. You'll then be prompted with a list of available data types you can drill by.

⇨Easy internal navigation

⤏Just like most of our browsers, Sheets often have many, many tabs. To help you switch from sheet to sheet without leaving the app, we’ve added navigation on the left-hand side…just click to navigate and choose the sheet you want for a new session.

The undo/redo buttons on the right-hand side of the screen works similar to your browser navigation. Now you'll never worry about losing your place or returning to an ah-ha moment you might have missed in your session.
