Welcome to Periscope! Periscope is made up of charts and dashboards.
Let's start by making a new chart. Most charts in Periscope are made with SQL. To get started, click the big "New SQL Chart" button.
Welcome to the Chart Editing Pane! Start by typing a query in the box, e.g.:
select 'Hello, World!';
When you're done typing, click the big "Run" button.
Voilà! Your results will show up below in a table.
Let's make them prettier! Start by clicking the "Chart Type" dropdown below the text area.
Scroll to "Number Overlay" and click.
Your "Hello, World!" message is now bigger and prettier!
Go ahead and click "Save" in the upper left to put this chart back on your dashboard.
Your chart is now happily situated at the top of your new dashboard. Happy Periscoping!
