Legacy Open Performance Goals

The final deprecation and removal of all Legacy Open Performance services will occur on October 1, 2021. This is a follow up from the February 2019 deprecation announcement of Legacy Open Performance goals and the October 2020 end-of-life announcement with the general availability of the new Measures feature.

Action Required: 

If you would like to maintain any existing legacy Open Performance goals, you must recreate them using Open Performance Cloud. How-to documentation and videos are available to you as references, if needed. Otherwise, any legacy goals and associated content will be removed and no longer accessible.

Please reach out to your Client Success Manager or contact our Support Team at with any questions or for further assistance.

End of Support for Internet Explorer IE 11

Due to Microsoft’s announcement that O365 will drop support for Internet Explorer 11 in August of 2021 and support for the desktop application will end on June 15, 2022, Socrata decided to end support for IE11 beginning on June 21, 2021.

On October 18, 2021 we will end all support for Internet Explorer on the Socrata platform. At that time, any issues that only appear in Internet Explorer will no longer be fixed, regardless if this causes loss of functionality. Users will still be able to access the Socrata platform after this time, but as the platform evolves beyond the capabilities of IE, users will likely begin to experience issues that will degrade their experience.

Please see this support article for more details: End of Support for Internet Explorer 11
