Internal Approvals: Elevate Control and Security in Vast Internal Networks

We're proud to unveil Internal Approvals, a highly anticipated extension to our Approvals system on the Enterprise Data Platform. This game-changing feature empowers Site Administrators to fortify their data sharing workflows with an extra layer of security. Internal Approvals gives organizations the tools to implement a stringent approval process for assets made available to their internal audience. This crucial checkpoint ensures every private asset undergoes thorough review and approval before being shared with all employees within the organization.

Key Benefits and Features:

  • Mitigated Risk in Data Sharing: The larger the organization, the higher the risk of data reaching unintended recipients. Internal Approvals helps manage this risk effectively.
  • Enhanced Data Governance: Internal Approvals unlocks a robust system to oversee data distribution within your organization, akin to controlling external data releases.
  • Quick and Easy Configuration: Configure both the Public and Internal Approval workflows and manage approvers all in one spot on our new Approval Settings panel.
  • Stay Updated with Approval Notifications: Ensure a seamless approval process by staying informed of every asset's approval request, approval, rejection, and withdrawal. Activating notifications means you'll never miss a critical update, keeping your workflows efficient and uninterrupted.
  • Audit Approval History in the Activity Feed: Site Administrators will enjoy enhanced visibility through Activity Feed events for Internal Approvals. This feature enables them to trace an asset's history, providing clarity and insights to address any inquiries regarding its trajectory.

Look out for Internal Approvals on your Enterprise Data Platform in early February, shortly after the official January product release.

  • Configure the Subtotal Row Placement: Customize the placement of subtotal rows in tables, allowing for better organization and readability.
  • Groupings with Expand/Collapse Functionality: Users can now expand or collapse groupings in tables and save their preferred state, making it simpler to navigate and focus on relevant data.
  • Sorting in Grouped Columns: Enhanced sorting options for grouped columns offer improved data analysis capabilities.

These improvements are more than just aesthetic; they allow you to spend less time sifting through data and more time deriving valuable insights.

Deprecations and Removals

Grid View Deprecation and Removal

This is a reminder that Grid View will be deprecated for datasets and derived views in March 2024, with deprecations for other asset types to follow. Since our initial announcement in September, our team has been working to ensure this will be a smooth transition for our users. To prepare users for upgrading to more modern tools available on the platform, our team is focused on:

  1. Making more filtered views compatible with Exploration Canvas.
  2. Upgrading and removing all legacy calendars.
  3. Upgrading Mondara maps to new Visualization Canvas maps.
  4. Enabling data exploration on the new Overview Page.

We will send a final email to platform administrators one month before our deprecation date.
