Release 71 Notes: Saturday, May 12, 2012

What's New in Release 71?

In Release 71, we focused on improving the current drill-in functionality and performance by bringing you an impressive new feature that provides great flexibility when defining various drill paths. As if that wasn't enough, we've also switched some of the core database technologies in our back-end which will bring about  significant improvements in report computation and data loading performance. Here's what we're bringing to you in this release:

  • Drilling Across into a Report
  • Continuous Performance Boosts
  • Removal of CSV Upload Mechanism from UI


Drilling Across into a Report

This new feature enables you to break a metric or attribute value down by a different attribute or you can even drill across from your original report into another report. Let's try this new feature out together! First, you'll need to be in "Edit" mode on your dashboard. Once in "Edit" mode, click on the Cogwheel icon on the top right. The chart below shows the % of each opportunity status by created date. Let's drill across to a Rep Scorecard report to see which rep has the highest Win Rate.


Now, let's select a metric (Won) and select the report we want to drill into.


Once the drill path is defined by selecting the report you want to drill into, click on any of the bars in the chart that represent the metric we selected and see what happens! Awesome, isn't it?


Performance, Performance, Performance!

As you are probably well aware by now, we are all about boosting our performance. We've been working non-stop to bring you the best platform performance possible by doing major back end optimizations that have, thus far, proven to be effective. As a result, reports and dashboards have been taking significantly less time to load. In this release, we also did some more under the hood optimizations and there will definitely be more to come, so please stay tuned!

Removal of CSV Upload Mechanism from UI

Because of the fact that we are moving to a new data transformation and loading framework, we had to remove the csv upload functionality from the UI. If you'd like to continue to load your own data, you will still be able to do so with the GoodData CL Tool or feel free to write us at and we'll point you in the right direction.


We really hope you enjoy Release 71!
