Sidebar Apply/Cancel Actions
If you make a sidebar selection and then click outside of the picker, this action is now treated as Apply rather than Cancel.
The exception is if the selection is not valid and Apply is not available, such as if you have selected > 250 fields in a field picker that has a limit of 250. In this case, clicking outside of the picker acts as Cancel.
You can now hide the header bar on a widget from view. The Hide Titlebar option is available in the widget’s menu. You can restore hidden titles in the same way.
Single Value Changes
Single Value now supports progress bar and gauge visualization options for continuous data. A new sidebar picker allows you to select the visualization type.
NOTE: This is only available for new widgets; existing widgets do not support this option.
Single Value is now hidden from the Analysis menu. You can now add it from inside a dashboard.
Single Value now supports Weighted Average and Proportion as aggregation options. If you select one of these options, an additional field picker appears that allows you to select the weighting factor.
Some tables are now rendered in a way that supports behaviors such as sorting and resizing.
This currently applies to tables in the widgets for Time-Series Correlation and Variance Analysis.
Data Visualization Changes
Bar Chart Sort
You can now select the Data Visualization bar chart sort order and limit the visualization to the top N bars, hiding the rest.
You can order the bars in two ways:
- Auto mode typically sorts the X axis alphabetically.
- Ascending or Descending mode sorts by the Y values.
If you select Compare By, the bars are sorted by the combined value before Compare By splits the data.
If there is a long tail of categories, you may want to truncate the chart and show only the first few bars.
In the Number of Bars field, you can select the number of bars to show and decide whether to aggregate the remainder or hide them.
If you select > 31 Days of data with Time on the X axis, the smallest available granularity is now by Hours.
In Table mode, Data Visualization now wraps column headers to reduce whitespace.
