What are boards?
Because your queries don't disappear, you need something to organize your query tabs.
Boards are like folders where you store your queries. Think of boards as a management system, allowing you to categorize your queries by subject, project, or however you'd like!
How should I use boards?
Use boards to group related queries together.
For example, if you're exploring user metrics AND separately working on a personal project, you wouldn't place all those queries into one board.
As illustrated below, you would separate queries into "User Metrics" and "Personal Project" boards.
How do I create and access my boards?
Click on the Boards icon (shown below) in your Resource Panel to open a list of boards you've created.
Exploring other boards
Each board will have its name displayed, along with a dropdown list of all of the query tabs contained inside.
View the queries inside a board by clicking the ► icon.
Preview queries in other boards
Clicking on a query in the dropdown will open up a preview of its SQL in your results grid.
**If you click on a query within your active board, then it will open that tab.
Opening a board
Click directly on a board to open the group of query tabs it contains.
Creating a new board
To create a new board, click on the "+" sign at the top of your boards list.
Name your board
Once created, give your new board a name.
It should be descriptive enough that it is obvious where to find specific data and easy to identify which queries the board contains.
Finally, you're ready to start writing your queries — just be sure to label your queries as well!
