Hello friends of Hashboard -
Over the last month we’ve been focused on making sharing insights and building beautiful charts as fast as possible for your team.
Our team also spent time doing a “Maker Week” (opens in a new tab) - our version of an internal hackathon. This time is dedicated to hacking new, risky ideas and many end up shipping as new features!
Lastly, if you’re based in NYC I hope you can join me, the Hashboard team and folks in the data community at our office next month for a happy hour (opens in a new tab).
We’ve redesigned the controls for building advanced visualizations in Hashboard!
Not only did the panel get a fresh coat of paint, but all of the controls are now organized for more advanced chart options. You can easily reconfigure charts, add documentation and jump into the code editor all from one place.
Have you ever filtered a dashboard and found an astonishing insight you wanted to quickly share with your team? Hashboard now automatically creates a Dashboard Explore Link every time you interact with a dashboard, making sharing a URL to your insight a breeze.
Explore Links now work the same across Dashboards, Saved Explorations and Data Models.
We heard your requests for this one! You can now create publicly-accessible links for Saved Explorations, Dashboards and Collections. Click the ‘share’ button on the top right of any resource and select “Share a Link”.
Share these with external stakeholders to show them your data in Hashboard. Public Links let you safely share specific cuts of your data and don’t allow recipients to view underlying data or change filters.
Collections are shared in presentation mode as a slide deck.
PS - If you’re not quite ready to share Hashboard views publicly, you can choose to embed authenticated Data Models, Saved Explorations and Dashboards in external applications.
- ICYMI: Relative Metric Comparisons - Level up your next dashboard and easily communicate key changes to your metrics. Choose if you want to display sparklines and/or comparison text on your metrics.
- Custom Start of Week Configuration - we’ve started rolling out more advanced time-based configurations. You can now configure a custom start of week so reporting can start on either Monday or Sunday.
- Latest from the Blog - A guide (opens in a new tab) to help you determine if it’s time to adopt a BI tool and some thoughts on why you should consider embracing denormalized tables (opens in a new tab).
- NYC Folks 🗽 - Join us on Thursday, June 22nd for a happy hour (opens in a new tab) at our office! Come hang out with our team and great people in the data/tech community from 6-8pm.
