Major Updates

  • Users will now be automatically redirected to log in when navigating to a Story. Previously, when a user was not logged in, they would receive a 404 error when navigating to a Story.

Minor Updates

  • Resolved an issue where public maps that are based on private views were not rendering correctly.


  • Resolved an issue where the update modal on a story was displaying an error instead of the intended message text.


  • Resolved an issue where unroled users were seeing an option to copy an asset.
  • Resolved an issue where sorting a grouped chart by value wasn’t working as intended.
  • Resolved an issue where the lower bound on an error bar was not rendering on charts.
  • Resolved an issue where grouped data points on timeline charts were not rendering correctly.

Coming Soon! 

Expected release - 2 weeks

  • 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 has been redesigned to be a vertical dropdown menu instead of a horizontal component.***
  • Users will have the ability to apply dependent filters by combining multiple filters that affect each other from parent filter to child filter, and so on.***
  • Based on user feedback, we are improving Stories access for users when they are not logged into a domain.***
  • 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.
  • Users will have the ability to filter charts and maps by spatial lens regions to zero in on data located in specific locations.
  • Users will soon have the ability to create a calendar visualization to display basic event information at a monthly view.***

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.
