🗓 Holistics December 2022 Product Updates

Happy new week everyone,

It’s Gus from the Growth Team at Holistics. Trust that you’re doing well :slight_smile:

We are excited to bring you up-to-date with some of the most exciting (and newest) Holistics updates - let’s unfold what we’ve shipped in the past month!

Community Highlights

Let’s take a glance at some interesting community posts we’ve handpicked for you:

For more of these, feel free to join our community. We’d love to have you there!

Usage Monitoring (Beta)

Usage Monitoring dashboard is now available in Holistics (Beta Access).

Say goodbye to maintaining dashboards with only gut feelings, because Usage Monitoring dashboard gives admins a birds-eye view of your entire organization’s BI usage and user activities - making it a lot easier to understand how your dashboards are being used.

Dashboard maintenance will be much less painful when you know precisely which dashboards are used by whom and how often.

Visit this doc for more information. And if you would like to join our beta, kindly contact us via our Support form.

Coming Soon: Dynamic Models

We’re also happy to share that we’re working on the long-anticipated Dynamic Models (aka Query Parameters feature).

This feature allows analysts to define reports that can take user inputs and inject them directly into a model/report definition. This feature is currently under development and is expected to be released in Beta by the end of Q1 2023.

Once released, it will only be available in Holistics 4.0. You can learn more about this feature here: Upcoming Launch: Dynamic Models (aka Query Parameters)

p/s: This is an early feature launch announcement, meaning the feature is still in development. We make this announcement early to gather feedback and make sure what we build actually helps solve our users’ use cases.

API To List All Dashboards

Our API list for all dashboards is now live!

You can now easily list down all dashboards and their own relevant information (aka metadata) to meet your analytics needs.

To get started, visit our developer documentation page and follow the instructions in Holistics API Holistics Docs 3.

Search By Report/Widget Title

It’s not really self-service when your users have to be data archeologists - digging around the BI tool for hours to find the right report.

Holistics make report findings easier by adding a new search feature: Search by reports/widget title. Now you can easily find reports or widgets just by titles.

We plan to roll out more improvements to Holistics’s search capability in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

Data Joke

Building dashboards but having no idea who changed what and when?

No thanks!

That’s all for this month! Stay safe everyone, see you next month!
