Zoomdata Version

User Interface (UI) Changes

The following user interface changes were made:

  • Color palettes supplied in Zoomdata that are colorblind-friendly are now identified. If a palette is colorblind friendly, -accessible is appended to its name. See Zoomdata Color Palettes.

  • Dashboard controls have changed in this release:

    • The following controls have moved under the menu in the header: Share, Export, and Dashboard Links. In addition, the buttons for these functions have been removed from the dashboard header.

    • The dashboard controls that remain in the dashboard header have been rearranged. In addition to other moves, the filter button () has moved to the left of the dashboard title and the favorites button () and menu have moved to the right side of the dashboard header.

  • Chart modification and management options have been made more consistent. In past versions, most chart modification and management options were available on a left-rail menu only when a chart was maximized. With this release, all the modification and management options have been moved to a chart drop-down menu that is available in both maximized and normal view. As a consequence, the left-rail menu has been removed because it is no longer needed. In addition, the workflow for each of the chart modification and management functions changed. Note that when you select some options from the chart drop-down menu, a new sidebar may appear to assist with the option you selected. See Using the Chart Drop-Down Menu for more information.

  • The following changes were made to raw data tables in this release:

    • You can now sort a raw data table by multiple columns. This allows you to organize the data in the table more effectively. For more information, see Raw Data Tables (RDT).

    • The default width of a column in a raw data table is now a fixed width of 100 px. You can adjust the width of any column, but your changes are not saved. This change was introduced to improve the performance of raw data tables.

  • In the Zoomdata UI, the Configure Pivot Table sidebar changed its appearance in this release. Its new look makes it more consistent with other widgets in the product. You can now select and manipulate the sidebar using keyboard controls in addition to a mouse. You can also change the aggregation type for metrics and the granularity of time fields using the new sidebar. See Pivot Tables.

  • The Configure Raw Data Table sidebar changed its appearance in this release. Its new look makes it more consistent with other widgets in the product. You can now select and manipulate the sidebar using keyboard controls in addition to a mouse. See Raw Data Tables (RDT).

  • You can no longer request that your filter specifications show as a subheader for a chart. The Show Filters as Subhead option has been removed. A chart's subheader was only visible if it was the only chart in your dashboard or if you expanded (using the button) the chart in the dashboard.

  • You can now use the Manage Custom Charts page in the Zoomdata user interface to enable, download, import, and delete your custom charts. See Managing Custom Charts.

  • A new dashboard export service for taking PDF and screenshot image exports of a dashboard has been introduced. This new service required a switch in the creation of dashboard thumbnails and removed the dependency on separate installations of an older Firefox browser and Selenium drivers. Instead, the service uses headless Chrome which is included in the installation.
