Dataslate Pages

Dataslate pages may be showing different layouts after recent the deprecation of Open Performance assets. 


Domain admins can edit their dataslate pages, or reach out to Support to have them replaced or deleted.

Spatial Lens

Region map (choropleth) cards on a Data Lens and region maps in the visualization canvas built for a dataset with multiple location columns can show data aggregated to the wrong location column without warning.


Refrain from creating region maps for datasets with multiple location columns. Users can create multiple datasets, each with one location column, in order to create the desired maps.

There is work planned to support multiple location columns and region maps for the future (timeline TBD), but the configuration is currently unsupported.


DataSync failures for "Missing Fields" where georeference columns - ":@computed_region_..." are not mapped.


Please ensure you are using the latest version of DataSync (DataSync releases can be found here.)

Featured Content 

Featured content is returning the Data Lens icon for all Charts, Maps, and Calendars. It is expected that each featured content item will return its specific icon.


There is currently no workaround, however, our engineering team is already working on rectifying this.

Text Overlap on Measures

In the About This Measure box on Measures, if the "Measure Ended"/"Measure to end on" date is too long, the date text overlaps the Reporting Period text.


There is currently no workaround, however, our engineering team is investigating the matter.

Visualization Filters

When filtering

on a numerical column for a decimal value without a leading zero(eg .8) an error is thrown


To filter by a decimal number, add a leading zero i.e enter 0.8 and not .8
