Time has come for our monthly round-up before almost everyone at Holistics unplugs to go celebrate the Lunar New Year with their families (yep, it’s happening in February). If you are also celebrating, we hope this new year brings you good fortune, peace, and prosperity.
With that being said, let’s get on with January’s updates.
Here is our selection of community posts from last month. The community is an open door for everyone to share their suggestions, updates, tips, and use cases of Holistics. Feel free to give it a try.
- Tip: A workaround for the dashboard auto-refresh feature from @anthonytd
- Feature Suggestion: Running Total for Count/Count Distinct (7 Votes) by @alex_h and @rob_b
- Discussion about Holistics Style Guide by @david-ri and @hapham
- Feature Suggestion: Filters as Slicers by @david-ri
- Use-case: Dynamically change column that is used for a measure based on a filter/parameter
Good news for those who asked for it: We have added Period over Period for Tables (with the % change!). Go to Visualization Settings, select Tables, and scroll down to enable Period over Period Comparison.
For more information about the Period over Period feature and its use cases, head over to our community post: Period over Period Comparison | Holistics Community.
You may have noticed a few changes in all table styles recently. Our team is rolling out some new improvements to make our dashboards and reports look fresher and cleaner. You can expect some other changes in the next few months. When that happens, we’d be happy to receive your feedback on the new look.
You can feasibly change the timezone where your data is processed and displayed. For example, if your business operates in Singapore, you will likely want every calculation to be handled in UTC+08:00.
For more information, you can read our public doc here: Timezone Settings | Holistics Docs and Database Setup for Timezone Settings | Holistics Docs
This functionality means that users can choose to export only selected widgets in the dashboard into the same Google Sheets file. More practical, no?
This upcoming feature implies an auto-migration process to transfer data from the customers’ existing SG account to a new EU/US account.
For now, users can only apply basic git operations to their analytics workflow (branching, commit, push, pull, resolve conflict) but the repository is managed totally by Holistics. With External Git integration, you can have a copied version of your analytics project on your own Repository (GitHub or GitLab) so that you can apply more advanced git operation to your workflow (for example, Pull/Merge Request for Data Integrity).
Q: “Where do you store your dad jokes?”
A: “in the dad-uh base”
That’s it for this month, we hope 2022 is treating you right so far!
