This document describes any new features, enhancements to existing features, fixed issues, and known issues for the latest release of Sugar Discover.

July 16, 2021

Fixed Issues

The following Sugar Discover features have been deployed as of July 16, 2021:

  • Line Charts: A new option has been added to Line Charts to select multiple points that can be passed as filters into the linked report, making it fast and easy to compare differences in details for multiple points in the chart.
  • New Chart Color Palette: The chart color palette has been expanded to include a broader set of pre-defined colors. Since the default colors applied on charts have been changed, there may be a color change on your reports if colors were not previously defined. If colors were explicitly chosen on a report, then they will remain. If a color is not available on the new color palette, Report Creators now have the ability to specify a specific color by its HEX code.
  • User Name Filter Type: Content creators can now define a new filter type on User Name (Is Current User) that is dynamically updated to filter on the user viewing the Report.
  • Live Query: This new mode provides users the option to either automatically update the report with each change immediately, or to make a number of changes and selectively decide when they want to update the query based on their changes.
