Dashworks Release Notes - Yellow Dwarf

Executive Summary

5.5.0 is a major new release of Dashworks and introduces the new Evergreen Self Service feature. Self Service is set to be a game changing feature which we will continue to build over the next 18 months with increasing flexibility and functionality. At this stage, self service is a preview with a small subset of the final functionality, focusing on the application ownership use case.

Self Service Preview

Dashworks 5.5.0 Self Service preview-1

The new self service preview allows users across your organisation, many of whom would not normally use Dashworks, to confirm or change ownership of applications. Application owners are people who are the single point of contact within the company for an application who may be responsible for licensing, testing and approving new versions. Self service has been built as a flexible open structure that will ultimately serve multiple different use cases. This first release presents the end user with information about the owner of an application with the opportunity to change it to another user.

Project User, Device and Mailbox Count

Dashworks 5.5.0 New Project Counts-1

There are now several new user, device and mailbox counts available for projects. Users has project device count and user count for device and user scoped projects; and mailbox count for mailbox scoped projects. Devices and Mailboxes have project user count. These allow you to quickly see the volume of associations between one object and others in the same project.

Empty Data Points Shown in Dashboard Widgets

Dashworks 5.5.0 Empty Data Points-1

When you create a widget based on date data, dates which have a count or aggregate of zero, within the range of dates will now be plotted as a data point. This gives an even cadence to the data along the axis, and is how most users would expect to see the data displayed. This is particularly useful when showing schedules or monthly snapshots of data on dashboards.
