Really Helpful Tip - Change This Account Preferences Setting

When you create or edit an analysis, the default setting is to open on the Results tab, where you view and edit the final layout of the results.

If you prefer to always open on the Criteria tab (where you build the query), you can change the setting in your account preferences.

1 - In the top right corner look for Signed In As and click on the down arrow

2 - Click on My Account

My account


3 - On the Preferences tab, go to Analysis Editor >> Full Editor and choose Start on Criteria tab when editing Analysis

4 - Click OK to close the My Account window

close account window


Now when you go to an analysis, it will open on the Criteria tab.
