Looks are reports that are built in an Explore using data, filters, and visualizations. You can save Looks, share Looks with other people in your organization, or include Looks in a Dashboard.
Changes that you make affect the Look for other users only if you save the changes that you make while in Edit mode. For details about how to edit and save Looks see Saving and editing Looks from an Explore.
In Discover, access Looks from Dashboards or the Personal, Group, and Shared sections of the Discover menu. The Discover menu is located in the top-right corner of each Dashboard and Explore.
Additionally, you can use a Look as a starting point for further exploration of data. While in a Look, click the gear menu and select Explore from Here to open an Explore that contains the data query, filters, and visualization that creates the Look.
See the article Exploring Data for more details about the features and options available in Explores.
