The new REST API provides you the support to automate back-end processes, perform administrative tasks and manage content programmatically. Importantly, the REST API also provides access to Yellowfin content for developers, enabling them to build custom turn-key experiences incorporating Yellowfin Signals, Stories, Notifications and more.
New configuration functionality has been added to allow you to use Yellowfin across multiple tabs or windows of the same browser. As part of this enhancement, safety checks have been put into place to protect against data corruption and prevents the same content from being edited in multiple tabs concurrently.
Timeline event cards that mention analytic content or contain links now have a menu icon. This menu offers you options to open the content in the same or separate browser tabs.
You can now view every historic run of scheduled tasks within the Schedule Management page.
You can now specify the Axis Formatting column setting for charts at the admin configuration level. As part of this enhancement, you can choose if numeric axis units will be summarized or define custom formatting. This setting will be applied in charts if Axis Formatting is set to ‘Default’.
Associated Reports functionality has been refreshed for Dashboards. You can now add reports as links in your dashboards rather displaying full reports, into both canvas and global containers.
Action Button functionality has been added to every dashboard canvas widget, making any dashboard widget actionable — meaning an event can be triggered when a widget is clicked. The types of events include: navigating to specific sub tabs, resetting dashboards or filters, jumping to a report or even an external link.
New events have been introduced for action buttons and all other dashboard widgets. These include: ‘Go to URL’ that navigates to an external page, and ‘Go to Sub Tab’ that navigates to any sub tab or slide within dashboards and presentations respectively.
Tabular report columns can now be sorted in ascending or descending order on published dashboards.
The reset button for dashboard filters can now be toggled to either reset filters only or all dashboard interactions including drills, sorting, chart brushing, date sliders and series selections.
Filter values applied on a dashboard are retained when opening a report from it. Improvements here include new navigational buttons to return you to the dashboard in a single click.
You can now change the display style of filters within a dashboard. This allows the entry style to be changed to checkboxes, lists, pop ups, dropdowns or radio buttons.
You can now save personalized default filter bookmarks that will automatically be applied to the dashboard when first loaded, or if the filters are reset.
Published Dashboards and Presentations can now be opened in full screens — showing just the content and hiding all toolbars.
A new toolbar has been added to published Presentations, showing presentation viewers including allowing you to configure user access and share the presentation.
Step Change Signals are now generally available within the outliers detection group for Signals.
A new Broadcast schedule type, ‘Save to Disk’, has been introduced, allowing you to schedule reports to be saved onto a local server path.
A new column formatting setting has been provided for calculated fields that allows you to clearly describe the field’s purpose and content to aid report authors.
You can now define the datatype of a calculated field’s resulting column upfront such as Numeric, Boolean, Text or Date. As part of this enhancement, the engine will not perform a validation test. The option to allow the engine to determine the datatype is also still possible by choosing the Auto Detect option.
A new setting has been introduced for dimension filters in reports where the first accessible value is automatically selected if you do not have access to the default value — particularly useful for scenarios where access filter restrictions are applied.
You can now edit a specific chart from a report’s design canvas with a single click.
Scheduled tasks that deliver content, such as report broadcasts, now maintain a list of recipients. Each historic run tracks users who successfully received the content and who did not. It is also possible to view the error in case of a failed delivery.
New configuration options now allow you to define global default limits for the number of rows to preview data as it is being built within the report builder and the number of resulting rows returned in active reports. As part of this enhancement, these settings apply to all reports but can also be changed at the individual report level.
