Product Updates - April 2020

Overview of Changes

Component Notes
Sidebar Apply/Cancel actions If you enter a valid selection in a sidebar picker, such as selecting a date range or an asset, and then click outside of the picker, this action is now treated as Apply rather than Cancel.
See Sidebar Apply/Cancel Actions.
Dashboard widgets You can now hide the header bar on a widget from view.
See Dashboard Widgets.
Single Value changes
  • Visualization options: Single Value now supports progress bar and gauge visualization options.
  • Hidden mode: Single Value is now hidden from the Analysis menu. You can still add it from inside a dashboard.
  • Aggregation options: Single Value now supports weighted average and proportion for aggregation.
See Single Value Changes.
Table interactions Some tables are now rendered in a way that supports behaviors such as sorting and resizing.
See Table Interactions
Data Visualization changes
  • Bar chart sort: You can now select the bar chart sort order and limit the visualization to the top N bars, hiding the rest.
  • Time selection: If you select > 31 Days of data with Time on the X axis, the smallest available granularity is now by Hours.
  • Table mode: In this mode, the Data Visualization now wraps column headers to reduce whitespace.
See Data Visualization Changes.

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.

Dashboard Widgets

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

Visualization Options

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.

Hidden Mode

Single Value is now hidden from the Analysis menu. You can now add it from inside a dashboard.

Aggregation Options

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.

Table Interactions

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.

Time Selection

If you select > 31 Days of data with Time on the X axis, the smallest available granularity is now by Hours.

Table Mode

In Table mode, Data Visualization now wraps column headers to reduce whitespace.
