Dashboard Filter and Usability Improvements

With this alpha release, we significantly improved Dashboard Filters as well as the usability of Dashboards.

Filter Improvements

Variable Filters allow viewers to add values

Dashboard Filters can be used to filter multiple reports simultaneously. We are improving Dashboard Variable Filters significantly by offering dashboard editors the possibility to allow Dashboard viewers to add filter values on their own. 

By allowing dashboard viewers to filter on custom values, they gain a lot of flexibility and can consume dashboards for different scenarios without editors having to modify the filters.

Editors can simply activate the checkbox “Allow viewer to add filter values” when adding a Variable Filter on a dashboard as shown below: 

When the checkbox is activated, dashboard viewers will see a Typeahead in the Dashboard Filter that can be used to filter for any value that is available for the chosen variable:

Dashboard viewers can even link multiple values by ‘or’ as you can see in the following screenshot:

Split Filter Report Filter and Dashboard Filters

Dashboard filters apply on top of filters that have been specified in Reports. In order to make more transparent how filters apply once a Dashboard Filter has been activated, we split the applied Filters into a report and a dashboard section as shown below:

Usability Improvements

Besides the above-mentioned filter improvements, this release comes with significant usability improvements in the area of Dashboards:

Editable Dashboard Filters

In order to simplify the usage of Dashboard filters, with this release we allow users to edit dashboard filters. Simply click on the edit button (pencil) to modify it.  In previous versions, users had to remove and add a completely new Dashboard filter in order to make changes.

Edit Reports from Dashboard Edit Mode

When editing Dashboards, often you have to modify underlying reports in order to e.g. change the visualization or customize the report. With this alpha release we allow users to directly access the Report Edit Mode from the Dashboard Edit Mode:

What’s Next?

We’ll release the next alpha of Camunda Optimize 3.3.0 in December 2020. Stay tuned.

A smooth update from Camunda Optimize 3.2 to Optimize 3.3 will be possible. Along with the release we will publish a dedicated update guide.

  • The Journey from Camunda BPM to Camunda...

    You might have noticed something a little different about our recent release announcement: Camunda BPM is now Camunda Platform. We’ve renamed our process automation solution to better reflect our mission to help organizations automate any process, anywhere. And, to be perfectly honest, we are also keeping up with what we’re hearing in the field — many of our users and customers already informally refer to “Camunda Platform” or even just “the platform” or simply “Camunda” when talking about the product. During CamundaCon 2020.2, our CEO, Jakob Freund, explained that processes are the algorithms that determine how an organization runs. They define how we work within our own team or across teams, and they influence the way we deal with our...
