Data manager

The data manager user interface is improved, and several features have been added:

  • You can now split tables that have been concatenated.
  • You can rename tables and fields.
  • You can add calculated fields to a table. A calculated field uses an expression to define the result of the field. You can use functions, fields, and operators in the expression.
  • You can change the display format of date and timestamp fields.
  • Fields containing dates and timestamps are expanded with date attributes that you can use in visualizations and expressions.

Alternative dimensions and measures

You can now add alternative dimensions and measures to some visualizations, using the property panel. The alternative dimensions and measures are then easily accessible and you can quickly change the data in your visualization. The visual exploration menu (available while analyzing visualizations) also supports this.

Data storytelling

Data storytelling has been improved.

  • You can now take a snapshot of a visualization when you hover over the visualization.
  • You can now choose to create an annotation when you take a snapshot of a visualization. The annotation is displayed in the snapshot library and helps you to distinguish between your snapshots.
  • When you add a snapshot to a story slide, the snapshot now snaps to grid.
  • When you play a story, a tool tip now appears when you hover over data points.
