Design Theme Enhancements

Apply design themes to the same collection based on the end-user viewing the dashboard. This will make it simpler to customize the experience for end-users without requiring duplication of dashboards.

Integrations

There are 2 new integrations available this month
  • Firebase - Cloud Firestore - Build your customer-facing dashboards on top of Firestore in a few minutes.
  • Snowflake - Build a better, more performant dashboard by bringing data together from Snowflake and your application databases.

January 2022

Reference Lines

Add reference lines to axis charts to display aggregate values, goals, and trends.

Integrations

Build your customer-facing dashboards on top of Supabase. See the Verb Supabase Docs

Tile Actions

Tile Actions make your collections… actionable. End-users will be able to drill into data, expand tiles, control filters and navigate to other areas of your system. The goal is to make Verb collections feel even more native to your system and give your end-users the ability to discover more. We will be releasing the tile action features in steps. The first available is “Open New Tile”.
Open New Tile will allow your users to select a dimension or category and open a secondary (or child) tile with more information. This secondary tile will display data based on the field selected on the primary (parent) tile.
For example, If we show a bar chart, our user can click that bar and a new tile will open to show data for that bar’s contents.
Check out this video on how to set up an “Open New Tile” Tile Action.

Collection Updates

Add/Remove Rows in the Dashboard Grid

We have made organizing your collection easier with the ability to Add and Remove Rows to the dashboard grid. A plus sign for insert, trash can for delete.

Container Tile, Min Height 3

Containers can now be smaller to better fit into your collection design. Now the containers can be only 3 rows high (instead of 5).

Add New Relative Date Options on Date Filters

Added the ability to filter over the last full week (Sunday- Saturday), as well as the last full month (1st – end). Keep your views consistent based on full week or month data.

Y axis Reset on Cloned Collection.

The Axis will not reset when you have clones. This should help those with a large number of similar collections.

Date Picker issues and Filter Issues

We’ve addressed issues with the date pickers for filters, which should make picking desired dates smoother, and we have simplified how to “apply” to save you a few clicks.

Nested Filters

Dashboard filters are now nested which means that when a filter is applied, the other dashboard filters will only show options that are available for the current results.
For example, if a dashboard date range filter is applied for January the next filter showing Federal Holidays will show MLK Jr. Day in the list but it will not show Christmas because MLK Jr. Day is the only federal holiday in January.

November 2021

System Performance

Collection Publish Process Changes

We’ve altered the publish process to improve the load times of your embedded collections. We expect that you will see significant improvements in the speed of the published/embedded collections.
The publish process may take longer if you have a lot of data in your collection. We included a progress indicator in the collection so that you can follow along if you really want to.
We strongly encourage you to use the recently added collection Preview option instead of publishing every change.

System Level

API Collections - Active Authentication

Previously, the API Collections used Static Auth. You can now use the same auth parameters that are used on dashboards with APIs. This increases the usability of the API collections across many tenants of your application.

Folder Management -

Use folders on Data Sources and Models We’ve added folders to help you organize your data sources and models more easily. Marie Kondo would be proud!

Model and Transformations

You can now expand the data preview tab on the model to a full page view for easier viewing.
We adding searching to the columns which will return the top 100 rows that meet the search criteria (It does not just search the displayed data)

Renaming Columns

On the Select Columns step in a transformation, you can now rename columns for better management and to eliminate duplicates.

Collection Updates

  • Multi-Axis Options
    • We’ve added a new option to treat multiple measures as independent axes on bar and line charts. You no longer need to group measures or use the Alternate Axis option.
    • To use this feature
      • First, add the fields in the measure and join them using an “OR”
      • Then, on the the display tab of the tile, select Independent Axes on the Multiple Axis Options dropdown in the Display Section.

Loading Animation

We’ve updated the loading animation on all tiles to improve the UI design and overall user experience. Let us know what you think!

End-User Data Export - Increased Max Rows

We’ve updated the max number of rows included in the tile data export from 10K to 500K.

Design System Updates

We’re continuing to refine our design system to help keep our UI clean and consistent. You may notice new table and button styles. Please let us know if you see any weirdness.

September 2020

Environment/System Level

Embedding with iFrames

We still suggest embedding via SDK when possible but you can now embed dashboards with an iFrame and segment data with iFrame keys. To access this go to the Settings section in your environment.

Back button in Header

It’s a minor update but the back button in the navigation header will bring you back to the environment section you were previously on with the previous search results instead of always bringing you to the overview section.

Data Sources

Version static files

You can upload new versions of the same static file. We will be adding additional validation soon so please ensure that your file has the same columns and column naming for now.
We will also add column mapping as part of the versioning process in the near future.

New Integrations

Outbound APIs

Connect to a RESTful API with our Outbound API connection.
If you know anyone using Elastic let them know about our newest integration.

Google Big Query

If you know anyone using BigQuery let them know about Verb.

Model

Preview Data - See the first 100 rows of any table in your model.
Advanced Search (coming soon) - You will be able to search the table data beyond the first 100 rows.
Aggregated Measures - Special type of calculated column that’s aggregated against the resulting data set during visualization instead of per row
Useful when you need to calculate an aggregate (i.e. average) taking into account all filters and groupings. For example, calculating a conversion rate on a data set of events needs to happen on all rows that are part of the resulting query instead of per-row.

Transformations (Views and Columns)

Paste Map Values

To save time when mapping values you can past in values from a spreadsheet.

Collections

Preview function - You can now view a live preview of a collection in a separate tab.
Responsive previews - see how collections will look on multiple screen widths
Preview Profiles (coming soon) - You will be able to apply the row-level security rules with a static profile using the request parameters. This means you can preview your dashboard and the data as a user would see it before publishing or embedding.
Editing View
The filters tab and the collection tab are now the same editing view. This makes editing collections a bit more fluid.
Axis Scale
You can now select between linear and logarithmic scales on axis charts.
  • Filters
    • Styling
      • We’ve updated the filter styles to inherit more properties from your design theme so it matches your collection.
      • The filter section now has formating options to control the wrapping of filters and there’s a new ‘more’ button option when there are many filters on your collection.
      • Hidden filters are no longer shown to admins in the filter area. There is a small flap in the top right to access these filter options in case you want to edit the default.
    • Filter Control Styles
      • There are new filter design options
        • Text filters
          • Improved multi-select functionality
          • Button List
          • Radio buttons
        • Number Filters
          • Slider
      • Ordering and organizing filters
        • The filter panel now allows you to organize filters easily with drag and drop functionality. Depending on the type of embedded filter display the options for filter locations may be different.
    • Embed options (coming soon)
      • We are improving the embedding options by adding additional functionality.
        • Embed With Collection - this includes the filters in the same embed code as the dashboard tiles.
        • Separate filter script - this will provide a second script in the embed instructions to allow a filter to be embedded separately from the tiles.
        • Control via SDK - filters will not render in the embed script. Your system will be responsible for passing these values.
          • When this is enabled there will be a small flap in the top right of the collection editor that opens a modal to configure filters and see the results while editing the collection.

Tile Edit Mode

When editing a tile you can now control the dashboard level filters to see how the impact the tile. If this tile is not connected to the filter then the filter will be disabled.

Download Report in the filter area

You can add a download report button to the filter area of a dashboard. This keeps things a little more organized.
You can add multiple reports to the same download filter button in the filter area. This means that when the end-user selects the download button they will be prompted with a selection of which report they want to download.
