I gave it a try. It appears you have to manually select each of those whom believe to triangulate, unlike Gedmatch which finds them for you (if you are a Tier 1 member).

Have just tried the triangulator for 4 matches to my father- TG

Chromosome 18 (1 segments)
Segment 1: 14.51 cM, 2,160 SNPs, 5,896,155 positions
Members (5): H B L, J T R, T G, C M, J D D
Position range: 66,524,589 - 72,420,744

JDD HBL CM & JTR are listed as 2-4th cousins to each other.

My father= JDD 4th-remote, HBL- 3rd-5th, CM- 3rd-5th,JTR-3rd-5th.

They also triangulate with me.

Roberta Estes has a blog post on this https://dna-explained.com/2017/10/21/introducing-the-triangulator/

Goran's previous tool of network graphs from that site was great.
Pity it no longer works. I used it happily for several years to demonstrate various aspects of my matches to others.
The visual medium bypasses a whole lot of detail to show some statistics.

I am looking to try the "Triangulator" as soon as I have time.
FTDNA can throw up many possible matches that appear to be linked.
In theory, this tool should save a lot of effort in working out whether they really are.

According to comments to that blog post, you can select up to 30 matches for consideration at one time, not just the 5 for Family Finder's Chromosome Browser tool.
