Navigating the User Interface

In the following topic, you can find a brief introduction to using the Amazon QuickSight user interface.

Using the Amazon QuickSight Landing Page

After you sign in to Amazon QuickSight, you see the Amazon QuickSight start page. The start page provides tabs for your analyses, your dashboards, and our tutorial videos. It also provides a menu bar at the top, with options for the following:

  • Searching Amazon QuickSight

  • Choosing the AWS Region that you want to work in

  • Accessing your user profile (community, language selection, and help)

  • Creating a new analysis

  • Managing data

Note

Consult your administrator before changing your AWS Region. Your default AWS Region is configured by your Amazon QuickSight administrator. Changing the AWS Region changes where your work is stored.

If you have autodiscovered data sources, your start screen looks like the following screenshot. Optionally, you can dismiss this data source information by choosing the X icon near the top right.

To view videos about Amazon QuickSight, choose the Tutorial videos tab. Choose a video to play it.
