Visual Reports: Dynamic Annotations, Chart Data tab, Clone reports, and other improvements

Dynamic Annotations

Our latest release allows you to create dynamic annotations in our Visual Reports Editor. You can also use a subset of numeric calculations when creating annotations with in-chart data. We have added the Process Control by Lead and Cycle templates to demonstrate how this can be used.


The following math and statistical functions are available for numeric annotations:

SUM(numerical expression)

Returns the sum of a series of numbers.

AVG(numerical expression)

Returns the average of a series of numbers.

MIN(numerical expression)

Returns the minimum of a series of numbers.

MAX(numerical expression)

Returns the maximum of a series of numbers.

MEDIAN(numerical expression)

Returns the number in the middle of a set of numbers.

STDEV(numerical expression)

Estimates standard deviation based on a sample. The standard deviation is a measure of how widely values are dispersed from the average value (the mean).

Chart Data Tab

Aggregations of chart data results are now available via the Chart Data tab. This tab is accessible through view and edit mode. We've also added the ability to export chart data to a CSV from this tab.


Clone Report

The "Clone" action has also been added to the Visual Reports actions menu. Please note: This means the tab "Create a report from existing reports" is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.


Visual Report Editor Improvements

Drag and drop of fields has been improved. We've also made it possible to change the order of fields in an axis.
