Improved Interactivity, Table Sorting and More

February 3, 2017

Ghazal Taheri

This week, we’re excited to announce updates across nearly all of our standard dashboard visualization types. These updates focus on increased interactivity, allowing more exploratory analysis and improved readability. They also lay the groundwork for future improvements.

The changes released this week will update all line, area, column, row and table charts, including the composite versions. They also build upon improvements released in September. All existing user dashboards will immediately take advantage of the improvements with no action needed.

 

Interactivity on Line, Area, Column and Row Charts

These chart types now support zoom and pan actions, which allow Upsight users to dig into subsets of charted data without needing to update the chart or filter the data. For example, if you are plotting 30 days of data and want to see the last few days in more detail, you can now easily zoom in to just those days with a simple click and drag.

Improved Readability

Our new charts use more of the available plotting area without taking up additional space on the screen. By improving the layout and space calculations, we were able to use whitespace that was previously reserved for labels more efficiently, resulting in larger visualizations. The X and Y axis titles also display considerable more text before truncation, and fonts throughout have been updated for legibility.

Interactive Tables

Table charts have received a substantial functionality update. On both composite and regular tables, data can now be grouped by multiple Plot By dimensions. Users can view their data in a concise format with contrasting levels of granularity. As a result, users no longer need to create multiple tables with discrete filters applied to view their data across dimensions.

Additional Features

Our latest update also allows tables to be sorted dynamically by any column. This allows users to quickly find high and low values across different metrics in composite tables, or Split By/Compare To series in regular tables. Scrolling through tables has also become easier. With fixed headers and columns, labels are now always visible, making data interpretation much more straightforward.

We hope everyone enjoys the updates released this week, and that they improve your data-driven workflows. Look out for additional improvements and in the future, please let us know if you have any feedback.
