Labs Overview

Looker Labs features are new, in-progress features, whose details may change over time. They are split into two categories:

You can choose to use these features or leave them disabled. You’ll see a list of these features in the Admin section’s Labs panel. The list of available features may vary, so the feature names and descriptions are blurred in this example:

Each feature has a short description underneath it explaining the functionality that it adds or changes in Looker. If you would like more detail check out the User Forums, which sometimes has more detailed descriptions, or reach out to Looker support.

Enabling and Disabling Labs Features

To enable or disable a feature, simply click the ON/OFF switch.

Use caution when disabling a Labs feature. If users or developers have relied on the feature to create a certain behavior, disabling the feature will break that functionality.
