Redesigned Workflow for New Reports
Our "New Report" workflow has changed to remind users that templates are available when starting a new report (recommended option).
A common confusion among new users is that the templates on the homepage are the only ones available - when in fact, those are only the first four templates, and are sorted by favorites first, and then by last modified.
We have also changed this workflow to be a multi-step process, to make sure users select the appropriate options and get the most out of their report.
In the second step, when choosing to start from a template, you'll have the full list of templates available in your organization, and you may search based on template names and labels.
Redesigned Template Library
Speaking of Templates, we have officially retired thumbnails from our template cards. Instead, we now provide more context on the template and its properties at a glance.
We now also provide additional filtering options in the Template library's sidebar to help find templates quickly by Language, Orientation, or Connection used - instead of only by label.
The template viewer has also changed. We no longer provide a full-page view of the template, but rather show you in a PDF viewer what it looks like, so you can skim through it faster.
New Widget: Geo Heatmap
We have added a new Widget to help you visualize top cities, regions, or countries on a map.
Circles will be drawn on each location depending on the connection ("data source"). The circle diameter will be based on the location's area in kilometers, and the color will be depending on the metric of your choosing, the darker the circle, the higher the value.
As of this release, the only connections supporting a Map Widget are Google Analytics Universal and Google Analytics 4 connectors.
Introducing Table Totals
The Table Widgets now support totals, showing you a summary of the data as either a header or footer row. This is helpful when you need to show several items in a single table, and don't have much room for scorecards to summarize.
To enable this on an existing widget, simply edit the widget, look for the "Total Position" selector, and change it from "Hide" to "Top" or "Bottom".
No features were retired in this release.
