We believe that analyzing data should be easy and that the tools you use to better understand the support your team delivers shouldn’t get in the way. With that in mind, we’ve been thinking of ways to make customizing your analysis easier in Explore and today we’re excited to announce our first major changes. These updates are coming to Explore’s Query Builder and we’ve detailed everything new below!
Note: These features are being rolled out over the coming weeks, please don’t be concerned if they’re not immediately available in your account. If you have any questions about these changes please contact our team: firstname.lastname@example.org
First, let’s take a look at the new design:
There are a few changes to the overall UI, here are the things you’ll notice:
- Metrics, columns, rows, and explosions have been moved to the left pane, while filters can now be found along the top of the workspace
- A date range selector has been exposed in the top right of the workspace, making it easier to filter data to specific timeframes
- Descriptive text that explains each shelf (metrics, columns, rows) as well as new icons for the customization options found along the righthand pane
- Save, delete, undo, and redo have a new look and are in a new place
Say hello to templates
Have you ever had the perfect chart in mind but weren’t sure where to get started? Have no fear, we’re introducing a fully-searchable library of queries to help you get started with your analysis. Simply pick a query and then make it your own with filters and customizations.
Analyzing data over time
You’ll soon notice that a date range selector has been added to the top right of the workspace. With this selector, users can choose the date attribute they'd like to slice data with and then toggle the filter to narrow in on a specific timeframe.
As always, we would absolutely love your feedback on these recent updates. Please feel free to leave a comment below or start a conversation in our community.
