Continually enriching the user experience is very important to the team here at Socrata. Throughout the year, we develop new features and incremental user enhancements, documenting our progress via these corresponding release notes. These improvements are delivered to our customer sites transparently and require little to no effort on your part. You can find the full list of Open Performance release notes here.
This document summarizes the Open Performance feature development work and fixes we’ve implemented in the last two weeks of February, 2015.
Previously, users who needed to create a goal using a subset of data could only do so by saving a filtered view of the dataset in the data catalog. Now, users can filter the dataset directly in the goal creation tool, decreasing goal page set-up time and promoting catalog simplicity. Read the Filtered Views How-to Guide to learn more about using this feature.
Open Performance users can now specify the y-axis minimum and maximum values on the prevailing measure chart, helping publishers meet specific goal visualization needs. Read the Y-axis Scaling How-to Guide to learn more about using this feature.
