iCharts engineering has been busy making the new iCharts as good as it can be. In the last few weeks alone, we put out two updates, complete with new features and UX improvements. Here’s a roundup of all the new features in our latest iCharts release.
New Pie Charts
Pie charts were redesigned (and taste better than ever). They have a cleaner look that makes them easier to understand. These new pie charts are perfect for showing information like distribution.
Cross Browser Support
Users can now use Internet Explorer and Firefox to create dashboards in NetSuite. Our primary supported browser is Chrome. However, not all users prefer to use it. We studied which browsers our customers prefer, and we selected Internet Explorer and FireFox as the next browsers for the iCharts BI experience.
“View Data” for Pivot Tables
In NetSuite, users can now view the data that generates the numbers on their pivot tables. This is a major addition since users can now use low hierarchy fields with a count, or just put the amount and use view data feature to see the itemized list as a search in NetSuite.
Expand All and Collapse All Rows in Pivot Tables
If you need to expand or collapse all your rows at once, use this shortcut. No more collapsing and expanding everything one by one.
Users can use an existing chart or dashboard as a template to create new charts and dashboards. This is a workflow improvement that will increase the productivity in our studio.
Portlet Deployment Screen
After publishing a dashboard or a chart, a link in the confirmation notification will allow users to go directly to the portlet deployment screen. From there, they can control and manage the audience and portlets within NetSuite.
Increasing the Number of Measures to be Used in a Visualization
Until now, users had a five measure limit in a single visualization. Now we allow users to add up to 20 measures. Even though it’s not a best practice to have a chart with this many measures, it will come handy for pivot tables and mashups with multiple item counts.
