June 21, 2021

New features

  • Goals now show on line charts. They show if you are on track or not based on the end goal and the milestones you’ve added to the KPI. Goals are not shown on public dashboards.
  • It is now possible to set the number of decimal points a KPI should show. This defaults to two and will not show decimals if they are not significant or if there is not enough space when shown as a number. 
  • It is now possible to see and manage users on a given team. This makes it easier to see who is on a given team. The feature can be accessed with the Organization Administrator privilege from the teams menu.

Bug fixes

  • Deleted items in Google Sheets integration have been removed. This implies that the “Bin” in Google Drive is not included in the search result when setting up a Google Sheets integration.

The release also includes improvements for the Cobraid team which we hope will give you an even better and faster support.

    May 5, 2021

    New features

    • New graph type. It is now possible to show KPIs as bar charts on dashboards. Choose between the intervals daily, weekly or monthly and decide the number of bars you want to show. You can also choose to either start from scratch on each bar (default) or to accumulate across bars.
    • Choose an “as of” date for variables. This will fix the value of the variable to the date you choose. Convenient if you want to show % change since a certain date.

    Improvements

    • Better scroll on dashboards in mobile view. This improvement lets you rearrange dashboards on mobile by using the drag icon instead of the entire dashboard card. This makes it easier to scroll in case of many dashboards on a team.

    Bug fixes

    • An error now shows if the password is too short, when changing the password.
    • A bug in the search field when adding new KPIs to a dashboard has been fixed. This greatly improves usability in case of many KPIs on a team
    • The Azure DevOps integration no longer stops working after a while. A mechanism has been implemented to automatically renew user access to Azure DevOps when the previous access expires.

It is now possible to track the progress of each goal and see the progress in relation to the time left before the deadline.

    • New integration in private beta. It will be available to the public in the future, but is only available for some customers at the moment.

    • Google Adwords has been reintroduced after a while away. Some changes to authentication in Adwords were the reason but have now been changed so that you can enjoy your Adwords KPIs in Deploy again.
    • A “now data point” has been added to line charts so that the latest value from the KPI is also appended as the most recent value.

    Updated graph type selector

    November 30, 2020

    New features

    • Promote a user to organization administrator.
    • An indicator has been added to the dashboard title to show if it is public or not. Public dashboards are indicated by a globe.
    • Copy a KPI. Existing KPIs on a team can now be copied drastically increasing the setup speed when the user has to setup multiple similar KPIs.

    Improvements

    • It was hard to scroll on dashboards on mobile devices without zooming. This has been improved. Now the user has to tab the graph on a mobile device to activate the zoom functionality. To stop engaging with the graph, the user just have to touch anywhere outside of the graph.
    • Major technical platform upgrades. The software used to create Cobraid Deploy has been upgraded. This has removed various bugs, decreased load time, and overall improved performance in the system.
    • Number widgets now show the same statuses as the graph widgets. This makes the error reasons more clear to the user. 
    • Increased useability of the dashboard share feature (public dashboards). It’s now possible to retrieve a share link again after the dialogue is closed.

    Bug fixes

    • Data on graphs started to have its own will after a while, resulting in lines drawn to random places. This has been fixed so that data continue to show correctly. 
    • Organization-wide KPIs were not visible to other teams as they should be. This has been fixed.
