We've implemented a new version control system that allows users to create drafts, and publish dashboards to different environments. This allows you to make changes and updates to your dashboard, and test out new iterations before pushing to production.
Our new toggle switch component gives your end users buttons to quickly change parameters on your dashboard such as viewing day over the past month, week, or day or grouping by different fields.
New container components allow users to create grouped visualizations and metrics. Show all relevant metrics together in order to organize your dashboard and convey certain insights.
Set default date ranges on your dashboard to show only data from the past day, week, month, 90 days, or more. For other dropdowns and multi-selects, you can now set default values that are automatically selected upon load also.
Connect multiple data sources with identical schemas to test across staging and production databases, or support systems where customer data is spread across multiple databases.
Heat Map: You can configure this by dragging a new data panel and selecting the heat map icon in the visualization tab. This will allow you to visualize two dimensional data in a clean and simple format!
Multi-select Dropdown: This new dashboard input element functions like the dropdown element but allows your users to select multiple options to filter the dashboard by multiple categories.
Responsive Dashboard Layout: Dashboards are now responsive to the screen size that your users are viewing the dashboard on. On a mobile screen, the dashboard will re-arrange automatically to better suit the smaller screen.
Our dashboard builder now allows you to view customer specific versions of your dashboard. This allows you to see exactly what your customers will see directly in the dashboard builder.
This will enable you to configure the dashboards with your actual customers' data in mind. It also means you can build dashboards quicker because queries will load faster and you will be able to iterate faster.
We've some new visualizations that were requested by our users:
We love expanding our visualization offering based on your feedback, so reach out to us if there are any more chart types you need to build your dashboard.
We are excited to ship one of our most heavily requested features: dropdowns filters for end user interactions. Many of you want to build dashboards with more complex UIs that allow your users to interact with the dashboard
With this in mind, we have introduced the ability to flexibly drag UI components on to the canvas. In addition to data panels and visualizations, you can now add dropdown selectors, datepickers, and text elements to your dashboards.
Building complex dashboards requires fine-grained control on how data is pulled and visualized in order to maintain optimal performance for your end users. Because of this, we built dashboard variables.
With this new feature, you are now able to use variables in your SQL queries using a simple syntax. This will allow you to filter data for a specific user group prior to joins and filter your data in response to user interactions on the dashboard.
