Holistics December 2021 Product Updates

Hi all,
These are some updates of Holistics in December 2021

Let’s take a quick look at some exciting features plus updates we’ve been working on in the last month.

Community Revamp

The number of analytics use-cases and feature suggestions has been growing dramatically in the last few months. Therefore, we decided to revamp our community to make it a better playground for you. By visiting community.holistics.io, now you can:

  • Get up to date with our latest releases
  • Discuss use-cases and how Holistics should be developed
  • Get help not only Holistics staff but also other Holistics Powers Users
  • Suggest improvements, request features, report bugs, or vote for the features you want to have in Holistics
  • Share your tips and hacks with the community

Community Highlights

We look forward to seeing you there.

New update on Analyst’s Permission

With our new update, Admin can allow the Analyst role to explore and create reports from any datasets without granting them access to the Data Modeling Layer.

New update on Dashboard Appearance (cont.)

You may have noticed a few changes in your dashboard and report recently - borders, fonts, text color, and more. Our team is rolling out some new improvements to make them look fresher and cleaner. You can expect some other changes in the next few months and let us know any of your feedback on the new look.


You can also enhance the look and feel of your dashboard on your own by following our tips here: Tips for making your dashboards more attractive - Tips and Hacks - Holistics Community

Running Total

Previously, you could create Running Totals using our Transform Model, though that requires some SQL knowledge.

Now, with just a few clicks, you can immediately create a Running Total field in the Visualization Settings.

POP on Pivot Tables

We have finally supported Period over Period for pivot tables (Oh, we also added the % change!) Go to Visualization Settings, select Pivot Table, and scroll down to enable Period over Period Comparison.
