Launched: Dashboard Period Comparison

Hi all :raising_hand_man:,

We are thrilled to announce the Open Beta access for our latest feature: Dashboard Period Comparison!

Much like Widget-level Period Comparison, Dashboard Period Comparison allows non-technical users to visually compare data from different time periods.

Furthermore, as it operates at the dashboard level, Dashboard Period Comparison is similar to Filter in that:

  • Editors can select multiple widgets to map to the same Period Comparison
  • Viewers can flexibly change the comparison period to explore data

However, kindly note that each widget can only map to one comparison at a time. This means if a widget already has a Period Comparison in its settings, Dashboard Period Comparison will override it.

How to configure Dashboard Period Comparison

You can add Period Comparison to your dashboard simply by clicking on the “Add Control” button, and choosing “Period Comparison”.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Do feel free to share your feedback with us at any time, under this post or via our in-app Feedback form.
