March 2024 Product Release

Platform Updates

Continued Improvements to Perspectives Story Tables

With each market release, we are releasing new features for the tables within Stories,

Now, users can:

  • Format Table Columns: Adjust the appearance of table columns, including date, number formats, and alignment, to improve readability and consistency.
  • Configure Row Striping: Apply alternating row colors to enhance table readability and visual appeal.
  • Configure Table Groupings: Organize data into nested columns for a structured and hierarchical view of information.
  • Change Column Display Names: Customize column headers to be more descriptive and relevant to the report's context.
  • Configure Simple Conditional Formatting by Column: Apply formatting rules based on specific criteria to highlight key data points, making it easier to identify trends and exceptions. 

These features collectively deliver a more streamlined and powerful reporting experience, enabling users to effortlessly manage and analyze complex datasets, ultimately enhancing decision-making processes.

Look out for these story table improvements in April, shortly after the official March product release.

Metadata Improvements

We have made various improvements to metadata, improving the experience for both administrators and publishers.

  • Default metadata values: Administrators can define a default value for text metadata fields. When a new asset is created, the default value will populate that metadata field and can be changed by a publisher as needed.
  • Multi-select dropdown: Administrators can define a drop-down metadata field as multi-select in the metadata template.
  • Conditional metadata: Administrators can define a metadata field as conditional upon another field, where the valid values of a metadata field are defined by the values inputted in another metadata field.
  • Improved publishing workflow: We have updated the metadata publishing experience. Metadata is now entered in a modal, so publishers no longer need to navigate away from the asset they are publishing.

These features collectively deliver a more powerful metadata management experience, enabling administrators to create more sophisticated metadata schemas.

Look out for these metadata improvements in April, shortly after the official March product release.

Related Content Tab Improvements

We have enhanced the Related Content Tab on the Overview Page. Users can now use search, sort, and filter their related content to locate valuable assets more quickly. In addition to these functionality improvements, we have also improved the page’s accessibility to meet current accessibility standards.

Deprecations & Removals

Grid View Deprecation

With this market release, Grid View is officially deprecated across all platforms. Deprecation means we will no longer develop on or fix bugs in Grid View. Instead, we will continue to invest in our modern tools such as Exploration Canvas and the Overview Page. These surfaces align more closely with our users' workflows and needs and will encourage users still using the legacy Grid View surface to move to these modern tools.

Classic Calendar Removal

All classic calendars have been removed across all domains. New calendar visualizations can now be created in the Visualization Canvas. Please see this support article for more information. Calendar Visualization
