Hey, Splunk Users

I'm new to Splunk and so far doing fairly well with basic searches, piping, using "limited" advance queries, creating reports, and alerts. However I have no idea what exactly is pivot?

The following can help Introduction to Pivot

It says -

-- The Pivot tool lets you report on a specific data set without the Splunk Enterprise Search Processing Language (SPL™). First, identify a dataset that you want to report on, and then use a drag-and-drop interface to design and generate pivots that present different aspects of that data in the form of tables, charts, and other visualizations.

In one sentence: With the pivot interface, users can create reports and visualizations based off data models without having to write Splunk searches themselves.
