March 2020 Release Notes

Version 2

 

New and enhanced features

Features added and enhanced in this release include:

New navigation

Domo's new navigation makes organizing and managing pages easier than ever. Whether you have a few pages or hundreds of pages, you can find them with simpler operations. In addition, since the functions frequently used in Domo can be moved with a small number of clicks, it is possible to execute the work in a shorter time than before and see the result. See this  demo video for more information.

In this release, all Domo customers will automatically transition to the new navigation, but you can switch to the old navigation layout in Admin Settings if you wish. However, the option to revert to the previous version in April will be removed and all customers will no longer be able to use the old navigation.  

Here are the highlights of the most important improvements.

Advanced UI 

The Pages menu has been moved into the scrollable Dashboard list on the left side of the screen. This list is collapsible and provides more space when you want to focus on important dashboard content. If necessary, you can display the list in the collapsed state. In addition, the search function is available in the list, and you can quickly filter the list of pages by entering a character string.

Shortcuts to the most important functions of Domo are displayed at the top of the screen, so you can operate more quickly.

Three-level page structure 

You can now create pages up to three levels deep, so you can add subpages one level below subpages. The increased number of hierarchy options allows you to publish the information you need more easily.

Favorites page 

Registering a page as a “favorite” allows you to easily access important content.   Select "Add to Favorites" from the page wrench menu   to add the page as a "Favorites" page.

Domo Everywhere

Embed the story

Each card's individual iFrames can be delivered to partners and customers as stories using the integrated iFrames. The method is very simple.  Simply paste the code embedded in the Story's Share dialog into your portal or application, and anyone can use the platform features, even from outside the company.

Embedding filters programmatically

Large-scale distribution of personal content in portals and software using programmatic filtering with Domo embed. Domo content can be shared without restriction on the number of viewing users. Shares are also possible for viewers who do not have a Domo account. 

With programmatic filters, you can:

  • Show only approved relevant content to viewers. 

  • Reduce the number of PDP policies to manage.

  • Enables viewers who are not full Domo users to view embedded content.

  • Reduce the risk of browsing users logging in to full instances.

Filters are defined in code based on your system's login credentials, not the Domo Data Permission policy. This ensures that only authorized subsets of data are displayed to viewing users, even if you have not selected Identity Provider Integration or Domo User Provisioning.

New AppStore interface / Public AppStore

In February, Domo launched the next generation Domo Appstore. The Appstore introduces a new collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to take every business process to the forefront and accelerate the use of BI at the cloud scale. Through collaboration between Domo and AWS, you can directly access and integrate any data subscribed with Domo from AWS Data Exchange. AWS Data Exchange is a new service that makes it easy and secure to search, subscribe, and use third-party data in the cloud.

Domo is also announcing enhancements to the Appstore that make it easier to find and build solutions that use data to drive your business. This new addition includes:

·         New enterprise apps  leverage data from different business systems to modernize common business functions such as finance and sales activities. Also update the workflow with the  new writeback  connector.

·         Improved navigation  makes it easier to find business-ready apps to support key processes such as sales commission, vendor contract management, or retail performance.

· A         more robust SDK  allows in-house developers and partners to build and distribute customized business-ready apps in days or weeks. Traditional app development typically took months, quarters, or years at most.

·         Increase access to models of innovation feasible with Domo and Domo App through public portals  

 

All apps in the Domo Appstore leverage the power of Domo's business cloud to quickly and easily virtually connect to any data source, anywhere, and make data more valuable to teams and organizations will do.

New chart type

We have added a number of new and exciting chart types to Analyzer. The added chart includes:

Sankey chart

Sankey charts are ideal for displaying information about the flow of business activities. For example, it can be used to show the flow of money (budget, donations, etc.), the flow of energy from a source to a destination, or the flow of goods from place to place. For more information about Sankey Charts, see  Sankey Charts-Beta .

Multi-value gauge 

When you use a multi-value gauge, a secondary value is displayed, along with a summary number, to represent the positive or negative level of change. You can use any of a variety of aggregation functions, such as sum, average, minimum or maximum, to aggregate the current value of a gauge. You can also show the level of change as a percentage or value. There are also a wide variety of other customization options available. For more information, see  Multi-value gauge-beta .

SPC chart

SPC (Statistical Process Control) charts are line charts, also known as control charts, Shewhart charts, or control charts. Used to determine if a manufacturing or business process can be controlled. For Domo SPC charts, you can set rules based on SPC criteria by setting them in the Chart properties. Outliers that are out of the default rules are flagged as outliers in the chart. Domo's SPC chart allows you to set 8 types of rules. You can set one SPC rule or combine rules on one chart.

For more information, see  SPC Chart-Beta .

Shape gauge

The shape gauge uses any of the 45 types of images to indicate the current value. By using different images showing different ranges, you can tell the user if the current value is positive, neutral or negative. Available images include squares, circles, triangles, pentagons, and octagons, as well as upward and downward thumbs, airplanes taking off and landing. In addition, you can customize the color and add variations to the shape, and you can choose from a wider range of options. Up to 10 ranges can be used with the shape gauge.

Mega table

Megatables provide all of the same features as standard tables and heatmap tables, but with more features. With the mega table, you can:

  •  Stores up to 25,000 rows.

  • Collapse, expand, sort, and scroll on the page.

  • Stores HTML links and images.

    megatable_images_and_links_rn.png

  • Apply a predefined or customized date format to specific columns. When  using the short date format  and long date format that are predefined options, the locale used for both is taken into account. For example, if the locale is Japan, whichever date format you select, the Japanese date format is automatically applied.

    international_date_format_rn.png

  • Transposition of table data, ie, swapping of rows and columns, is convenient for increasing visibility when there are too many columns in a table.

    table_transpose_rn.png

  • Preserve all formats when exporting Domo tables to Excel. In addition to cell, row, and column formats, page and card filters, pivot views retain that format. In the screenshot below, the top is the Domo table and the bottom is the same table exported to Excel. See  Table Charts for more information.

    table_excel_export_rn.png

Pivot table

Pivot tables offer more powerful options than Domo's standard tables. Pivot tables allow you to quickly and easily aggregate large amounts of data from DataSets and explore the data in different dimensions and ways. Domo has been using the pivot table function in  the form of a Sumo card for a long time. However, Sumo cards are in a different format than other cards and could not use many of the features available with KPI cards. The addition of pivot tables to Domo's line of charts offers many features that were previously unavailable. For example, it has full integration with Analyzer, full mobile support, drill paths, alert integration, Beast Mode support, and much more. For more information about PivotTables, including creation steps and a list of all features, see  PivotTables-Beta .

Improved server migration in Workbench

Workbench jobs can be migrated seamlessly and smoothly using AES encryption. When moving a Workbench job to a new machine using AES encryption, the credentials are also transferred. This means you don't have to re-enter your credentials every time you switch machines. As a benefit, AES encryption is included in all the latest security features.

Workbench Query Builder

You can create queries in Workbench without knowing the data structure. When you create a query, Workbench loads table and column names from the database. Therefore, the accuracy of the query is guaranteed. Query Builder is available for all large databases (MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL).

Use Notes and Doc Cards in Publication Groups

Publication groups now support notes and Doc Cards. It provides a better context and a deeper understanding for anyone viewing the Story, whether or not they belong to your organization.   A new "Cards" step in the " Publication Groups" tab allows access to all cards. This does not require the use of the DataSet feature on the card. You can also access notes and Doc Cards (as well as custom apps that do not use DataSet). 

Note that this feature is not activated by default. If you want to include these card types in your publication group, you must configure and activate them separately in each publication group. Also note that Doc Cards in the Publication Group are "Read Only". That is, the content cannot be downloaded from the card.

CSV attachment in schedule report

When scheduling a report on one card, you can choose to attach the data used on the card. This will create a CSV export of the data and store it as an attachment. Busy executives and business users can easily and quickly analyze data snapshots on the fly, using the tools of their choice. It also makes it easy to repeatedly share important data and communicate seamlessly with customers and colleagues. 

Note that this feature is only available for scheduled reports on individual cards and not for dashboards. Also  note that the export contains only the data used on the card, not the entire DataSet  .

Disable card interaction

By disabling the interaction of cards in Stories, you can keep your users on a "guided path" in your Domo Stories. This option is located in the default card's Card Interaction Settings and, when selected, prevents actions from occurring when you click the card. Also, buttons and highlights disappear when you hover over the cursor. This allows you to focus on important content and use text and images freely as design elements in Stories. 

disable_card_interactions_rn.png

In addition,  you can use the Card Options Button  option in the Display Settings   menu . This menu appears when   you click the Edit Content button on a card in the Edit Story view   .
