[Upcoming] Define Actions in Holistics

Note: 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.

Introduction

We’re thrilled to present Actions, an innovative feature enabling dynamic interactions with your data and visualizations. This empowers Report Consumers to engage with data beyond static viewing, unlocking a variety of possibilities:

  • Ecommerce Industry: Send Email to your vendors when product stock is low.
  • SaaS Industry: Directly access CRM details upon detecting customer inactivity or downgrade.
  • In-app Navigation: Seamlessly navigate between reports or datasets for deeper exploration.

The scope is vast, thanks to the support for Actions in Report.

How it works?

Let’s say you have an existing table and you want to perform an action on a Column of that table, you just need to create a new action for that particular Column. The action could be an adhoc AQL Dimension or another existing Dimension.

// This is the Table Column
dimension country_name {
  label: 'Country Name'
  type: 'text'
}

// This is the URL Action for the "Country Name" table column above
dimension country_url {
   label: 'Show in Search'
   type: 'text'
   definition: @aql concat("https://www.google.com/search?q=",countries.name);;
}

Release Timeline

This feature is currently under development and is expected to be released by the end of Q2 2024.
