Release Highlights 

  • Administration & Service Management 

  • Dashboard & Story Design 


Administration & Service Management 

Include or exclude object dependencies while exporting   

New Features that were added in this release are:

While exporting a package or editing an existing package, you can now choose to include or exclude object dependencies 

  • While creating or editing the ACN package, users can consist of objects with and without dependencies.  

  • User experience is enhanced to allow users to choose objects without dependencies. 

These features create a significant value as: 

ACN is used to transport the object between Development and production tenant. First, transport users would like to transport with all dependencies.  

During subsequent transport, users wanted to transport only delta changes. This enhancement would allow users to include objects without dependencies. 

Dashboard & Story Design 

New Features that were added in this release are: 

Optimized Design Experience (ODE) 

  • Forecast Layout (Phase 1) 

  • Cut-Over Date Types (Specific Date and Today) 

  • Calendar and Fiscal Period 

  • Version (Look Back and Ahead) 

Optimized View Mode (OVM) 

  • Active Viewport Rendering with Tables 

New Features that were added in this release are:


Active Viewport Rendering, the ne default rendering experience: 

Only processes and renders objects that are visible to the user, those that are dependent and objects that are not supported with Active Viewport Rendering.  

The objects outside the viewport are paused and only processed when the user scrolls to bring them into the new active viewport.  

It enables viewers to have data returned to them as quickly as possible and allows them to execute multiple subsequent interactions more seamlessly.
