January 2017 Release 1

Version 26

 

New features and enhancements

Features and enhancements in this release include the following:

New Card Interaction Tools (CSR)

Our new Card Interaction (Client-Side Rendering) tools make it easy and fun to perform in-depth data analysis on your charts in ways you never could before. These tools include the following:

  • New Chart Picker. You can now change the chart type for most charts right in the Details page instead of having to first open the Card Builder. In contrast to the chart type picker in Card Builder, which only shows icons for each chart type, the Details view chart type picker shows you actual thumbnail versions of each available chart type with your chart data already applied.

  • Legend Item Toggle. In most chart types with legends (excluding Maps), you can now click on a legend item to hide or show the corresponding data in the chart.

  • Chart Zoom. You can click and drag over a portion of a chart to "zoom in" on that portion. This works on most chart types, excluding pie-type charts, maps, gauges, Radar graphs, and a few others.

  • Quick Sort. For most Bar and Line graphs, you can now quickly change the sort method just by clicking an icon, without having to open the Card Builder.

  • Chart Save As. When you make changes to a chart in the Details view (whether by using any of the above features or filtering using the Analyzer tool), you can now save a copy of the edited chart to your Domo. You can then give the new version of the card a new name, enter a description to help viewers understand what has been changed in the card, and select the page in Domo where the new card will reside.

  • Data Forecasting. A new chart property for Bar and Line charts allows you to forecast the value of the remainder of the current period in your chart. It does this by taking the current value for the period and comparing it to the previous period.

For more information about all of these tools, see New Card Interaction Tools (Jan. 2016).

Bulk Admin Options for Pages and Cards

At long last, "Admin" users in Domo now have the ability to make bulk edits to the pages and cards in their company Domo instance! With this capability in place, users of your Domo instance will no longer need to waste time manually moving, deleting, and setting permissions on cards and pages, freeing them up to tackle more important tasks like answering the needs of your business.

The Cards and Pages tabs in the Admin Settings have been completely revamped to allow you to make bulk changes with ease. The Cards tab lets you filter by card, owner, number of pages the card is found in, card type (chart, document, poll, etc.), and the date of the last edit, or any combination of these. The Pages tab lets you filter by page, parent page, owner, the number of cards in the page, and the last update date and time, or any combination. You can even select all of the cards or pages in your instance if you want to make changes to all of them. For any page or card, you can click anywhere in the row to bring up a tab with more information.

Bulk options for pages

Bulk options for pages include all of the following:

  • Changing page owners

  • Adding and removing users and groups

  • Moving pages in the hierarchy (includes options for setting permissions on moved pages)

Domo Online Form v2

The online forms (webforms) tool has been improved to provide more options for manually creating DataSets in Domo. These new options include the following:

  • You can import an existing DataSet into a webform.  

  • You can change the data type for a column. Number (value), Text (string), and Date data types are available. You can also disable Domo's automatic data type identification for a column by deselecting the Auto Detect option for a column.

  • You can search for and replace given text strings.

  • You can add columns to your online form with one click of a button.

  • You can expand the online forms editor to fill your entire screen. 

  • You can filter to see rows in a column that do not match the selected data type.

Each column also shows the number of unique values within that column.
