Audience Icons on the Action Bar (July 15, 2019)


  • The Action Bar now indicates the audience of a published asset, as well as pending approval requests on draft assets of Public assets.

Major Updates

  • Administrator users will now be warned when changing Approvals configuration options to settings that will result in changes to pending assets in the queue.

Minor Updates

Administration and User Management

  • Resolved an issue where links from a user's profile page led to a blank screen. The links now navigate to the pages for editing user profile details and developer settings.
  • Resolved an issue for IE11 users logging in using multi-factor authentication where the QR code was malformed and un-scannable. 

Catalog & Metadata

  • Resolved an issue where pending updates to published assets in the approval queue could not be approved after changing from manual approval settings to auto-approval options. 
  • Resolved an issue where the Access Manager was not loading on Data Lens pages.

Data Ingress And Updates

  • PDF exports will now be disabled for datasets with more than 5k rows in order to ensure PDF files will generate successfully.
  • Resolved an issue causing searches to not work in grid view for URL column types.
  • Resolved an issue resulting in grid views opening the first line rather than the line selected for editing.


  • Small Story table of content padding improvements on mobile. 
  • Resolved an issue with the table of contents block padding.
  • Resolved an issue when "Submit for Approval" button was rendered before Public audience was selected on Story drafts. 


  • Removed the gear icon from the filter dropdown in the quick filter bar for text, number, and true/false filter types. Filter settings can be accessed via the kebab menu instead.

Coming Soon! 

Expected release - 2 weeks

  • Existing links in site headers and footers to the Socrata Terms and Conditions will be replaced with links to the Tyler Privacy Policy and End User Agreement. Users will need to acknowledge the Tyler Privacy Policy and End User Agreement one time upon login.

Expected release - 1 month

  • Based on user feedback, we are improving Stories access for users when they are not logged into a domain.***
  • Users will be able to create hierarchies and drill-downs in Visualizations, allowing end-users to click on a component of a chart and "drill in" to explore the data within that piece of the visualization.***
  • The Quick Filter Bar in Visualizations and Perspectives will be redesigned to be a vertical dropdown menu instead of a horizontal component.***
  • Socrata Gateway will have an open beta program in August. Socrata Gateway is a new framework for connecting data from on-premise and cloud-based data sources directly to Socrata. Any customers interested in participating should contact their Account Manager or Customer Success Manager.

Expected release – 2 months

  • We are updating Perspectives roles to better enable users to create and collaborate on Stories. When a Story is shared with a user, the user will be able to view and/or collaborate on that story even if this user does not have a role with permission to create and edit Stories.
