ADX dashboards keeps evolving constantly. Below you can find the latest new features released since our August update.
Cascading filters allows customers to use parameters to filter not only the dashboard visuals but also the other filters on the dashboard. This is very useful in high cardinality filters since it allows showing just the relevant values in the filter per other filter selections.
The example below shows a State parameter which is dependent on the value in the Country parameter.
To create the cascading affect you add the parameter to the query of a query based parameter (within the parameter edit experience).
In the example below only the states in Japan are available in the state filter once Japan is selected as country.
Clickable URLs in tables
URL strings (starting with “https://”) in tables can be clickable now. This is very helpful when users want to create quick navigation from their data to other data sources.
Multi-stats cards provides an easy way to create visuals with groups of multiple stats using one query. In addition to being more convenient, this will reduce cluster load by sending a single query to visualize a few stats.
The visual provides formatting options to define the number and layout of the multi stat matrix –
Text size support for stat visuals
You can now select your stat text size, using the recommended, small or large options.
All of this is now in public preview and we’re looking forward for your feedback.
