#FeatureFRIYAY October: multi-account plugins, undo screenmode sync, and more!
Posted On 26/10/2018
October is running to an end. The days are getting shorter, and the weather is getting colder. So grab a blanket and a hot chocolate, while you read what’s new in Cumul.io this month!
A modification to screen modes
Mobile, tablet, desktop,… What’s your preferred device to view your dashboards? As you know (or are about to learn), Cumul.io allows you to tweak your dashboard for different screen modes.
You can keep the modes synchronized, or you could choose to make different versions for mobile & desktop, containing different charts or filters:
Keep dashboard items in sync for all screen modes For example, when you add or modify a chart in the desktop view, these changes will be applied to every screen mode you have enabled for the dashboard. Only the positioning of the charts will change.
Keep screen modes unsynched to make separate versions For example, if you add or delete a chart in the ‘mobile’ view, it will only apply to the mobile view. You’ll need to change desktop and other modes individually.
In the past, we’ve seen users struggling when re-enabling synchronization. This automatically overrides all your existing screen modes, while this is not always the desired result.
Has this ever happened to you? Then you’ll be happy to hear we’ve added an undo button for sync & desync. From now on, you can easily switch back to your previous versions!
The same goes for undo when deleting a screen mode. For example, if you’d delete the desktop view when desynched, you’ll be able to recuperate it with the undo button, instead of being lost forever.
Add data from multiple accounts
Plugins let you easily add data from any source to Cumul.io. To make that experience even more complete, we’ve added some new stuff to our plugins!
Have you connected your database, your own plugin, or an account from Pipedrive, HubSpot, Asana? You can now manage ALL your existing connections in your Profile section below ‘Connected Accounts’.
On this page, you’ll be able to:
Have a good overview of all your connected sources
Connect or disconnect any account in 1 click
Connect multiple databases
Add data from multiple accounts of services like Pipedrive, HubSpot, Exact Online, Asana or Yuki
Give names to your connected accounts (interesting when linking multiple accounts)
When creating a new dataset, you can easily switch between accounts. Browse & search accounts based on the name you gave them on the overview page.
New plugin: MongoDB
Are you using MongoDB? Good news! We launched a new connector, which allows you to connect your data from MongoDB in minutes. Simply enter your hostname, key and token, and you’re good to go.
Absolute values in pie/donut charts
A fan of donuts & pies? Just to be clear, we’re talking about the charts here ;-). We did some adjustments, so now you can choose how to present your data in pie charts or donut charts.
In the past, pie charts would indicate the percentage of each part by default. Now, it’s also possible to show the absolute values of each part.
