The new “marquee” feature for the 7.3.0 release, grid nesting allows users to create an “expand/contract” report within the EDA grid. Grouped by dimension, the nested grid will allow up to three levels of detail to be displayed. This can include everything from customer data, purchase history, and product information. Whatever data you wish to associate in the view, your preferences can be saved, added to the dashboard of your choice, or exported.
Data Snapshot Retention
Administrators syncing data within EDA, retention of historical snapshots can be an invaluable tool when working with datasets. To use the feature, tick the ‘Retain snapshot’ box when adding a file in Sync. Retention periods can be set for both daily and monthly periods. This feature is especially useful when working with data that is updated in real-time, allowing you to retain and view historical snapshots at-will.
Retained data can be viewed by navigating to Administration > Sync sources and selecting the relevant source to view in more detail. In the example below, each snapshot is identified by its timestamp according to the retention period previously set by the user.
Enable and Disable Sync Items Functionality
Administrators who have been looking for a veritable pause button when it comes to data sync will find just that with the new Enable/Disable Sync Items functionality released in EDA 7.3.0. The function is easy to engage. All admins need to do is tick enable box in the Data Items panel prior to sync taking place.
Newly added items and items being edited can also be enabled or disabled for sync using the same method.
