Ask ClearQuery

Module 3

This module is focused on showing users how to ask questions of their dataset via Ask ClearQuery.

Ask ClearQuery allows users to ask their datasets questions via natural language, the system takes those questions and converts them to queries on the backend and provides the user with a graphical representation of the corresponding data.


This Walkthrough video is broken out as tasks below. Feel free to follow along or complete the tasks on your own to get comfortable with uploading a dataset.
