Guided Search

Hardik Chheda Updated by Hardik Chheda

Guided Search helps you to build your search query and provides you the end result either in text or chart format. When you type your search query, the Guided search automatically provides you the next relevant field that you need to use in your search query.

Note: The guided fields and terms are based on the fields available in the selected datasets and based on your last searches.

Let's see how Tellius guides us to build a sample query and displays the result.

Note: Guided Search requires you to follow the Guided Search syntax. See
