Happy summer! 

It may seem like an unusual time for a product release, but we thought you would want these updates as soon as possible.

As you see from the summary below, our main focus has been to improve the loading speed of the entire solution - from login to browsing dashboards.  If you've ever said, 'Hurry up!', we hope you see a difference now. 

We've also made several other improvements and fixed issues. Have a peak at the list below and remember to check the section about Single Sign-on (SSO). This can help you navigate to key reports faster, without the hassle of passwords.

Hope to hear from you soon!

P.S. Our technical support team is available as normal during the summer:)


Loading speed

Rather than loading all dashboard parameters at once, the dashboard now loads what it needs, when it is needed. In some cases, we've seen this can lead to 6x faster loading time! This difference will be most noticable on dashboards with many parameters.

We have also worked on several other issues that affect loading time.

Single Sign-On (SSO) for SuperOffice CRM

Business Analyze now supports single sign on from SuperOffice CRM.  This means you can nagivate directly to Business Analyze from the main menu in SuperOfficem or from web panels withtout having to re-enter your user name or password. Webpanels will also show dashboards from Business Analyze without any need to log in.

SSO with Active Directory

Business Analyze now also support single sign with Active Directory. This means, for example, that you can go directly from your companys intranet and over to a dashboard in Business Analyze without the need to log in again.

Support for more data sources

In addition to a wide range of applications that we already connect to, you can now connect and extract data from Google Analytics, LiveAgent and CrossAdvertising directly in the Data Central!

The easier it is to gather data into one place, the easier it is to analyze and gain insight from that data.

See examples of data sources and applications Business Analyze connects to, or tell us what application interest you.

Visualisations: Updated gauges and dark theme

We have updated the look of the stardard gauge. Hope you like it! You can still change how it looks by changing the style of the element (if you have 'Designer' access)

The dark theme, which you can select for the dashboard and visualisation in the editor, has also been revised. It is a sharp alternative to a white or light background behind charts and graphs. You should try it!

A few of the additional fixes
