You can use the week attribute to filter your data in insights and KPI dashboards, you can compare the data to the previous period or the same period of the last year, and you can use weeks when customizing your date filter on KPI Dashboards.


How to enable this feature?

  • This feature is immediately available for Free plan and new customers.

Create a Logical Data Model in Your Workspace from CSV Files

You can now create a logical data model in your workspace from CSV files that represent the structure and the type of your data.

This is how it works
In the Web LDM Modeler, simply drag and drop a CSV file to the canvas:

The Web LDM Modeler analyzes the file and suggests the structure of a dataset to create based on this file:

Once you review the suggested structure and confirm it, the Web LDM Modeler creates a dataset:

This way, you can build an LDM from scratch in a newly created workspace or update an existing LDM by adding more datasets and connecting them to the datasets that already are in the LDM.

After you publish the LDM to your workspace, the datasets created from CSV files become integral part of the LDM.

Review your LDM from a different perspective
In addition, you can now switch between the graph view and the list view of the LDM.

  • The graph view shows the LDM as a set of color-coded datasets with their relations. This view opens by default when you open the Web LDM Modeler.
  • The list view lists all the datasets in your LDM with their statuses (published/not published) and timestamps.
