New unsaved workbooks are referred to as explorations.

Explorations are ideal for in-the-moment ad hoc analysis, when you want to explore your data and move on without saving your work for future use.

Recent explorations can be revisited from your Recents page for up to 30 days. Older explorations can be access via their original URL. 

This article shows how create and revisit explorations.

Save an Exploration as a Workbook
