We are pleased to announce the Board 2023 Spring Release is live. This release delivers numerous improvements for all users of Board across a wide variety of business scenarios, including:
  • Citizen End Users can easily tweak the format of values displayed in Data views and show or hide columns on the fly to customize the data shown to suit their needs.
  • Makers now have various new options and features to load and manipulate data in a much more streamlined and faster way. The new Smart Import Object will be improved with new mapping options providing a much greater level of flexibility, and the Layout will be capable of handling many more use cases involving Unbalanced Hierarchies.
  • From a design point of view, various formatting options of the Data view and charts are now able to be managed from centralized configuration areas, making it easy for Makers to preserve graphical consistency in reports and dashboards across the entire Board Platform.
  • The new "REST API call" Procedure step included in this release gives Board a never-before-seen ability to integrate with third-party systems, in a much more simple and scalable way.
  • Admins and Ops gain other new security and logging functionalities.
The new features of this release include:

New Data View Formatting Options

End users in Play mode can now decide the format of numeric values displayed in the Data view as well as show or hide columns as needed. These changes can be applied on the fly in Play mode, with the possibility to save them using existing Board's self-service BI features such as My Screen View or Presentations. Read more about the new Data view formatting options

Custom Style Template

Various new properties have been added to the "Row style template" configuration page, the "Block format" configuration page, and the Data view and charts properties panel. All these formatting options are managed from centralized configuration areas and they can be configured in order to be applied automatically, when certain conditions are met. Read more about the new options.

"REST API call" Procedure step

The new "REST API call" Procedure step allows Makers to create Procedures able to send different types of API requests complete with any additional parameter they may need. The new step can be used to send data from Board to other systems (or other Board Platforms), to receive data to be processed and stored in Board Data models, to activate processes outside Board and much more.
