#FeatureFRIYAY June: a Typeform connector, an improved theme editor & more!
Posted On 28/06/2019
Summer is coming! While the sun is burning outside, we’re releasing some new, refreshingly cool features to the platform. Read on and discover what’s new in Cumul.io this month.
Connect your Typeform data to Cumul.io
Do you regularly conduct surveys or ask for feedback? Then you might already know Typeform. It’s an awesome platform to build & share interactive forms & surveys, including feedback forms, contact forms, and even quizzes.
And it gets even better! Thanks to our partnership with Typeform, you can now analyze your Typeform survey & feedback data in Cumul.io.
We added a Typeform connector to Cumul.io, which lets you connect data from any Typeform in just a few clicks. Instead of creating manual feedback reports, you can now create insightful dashboards to analyze your surveys, which are updated automatically.
In the embedded dashboard below, you’ll find the results of our sample survey. Feel free to fill it out yourself, and your answers will be updated in the dashboard in just a couple of minutes!
We have a number of styling options available to give your dashboards a look & feel that completely fits your brand. For example, have you tried our theme editor before?
This is the place where you can create a custom color palette, perfectly matching your branding. Now, we’ve made the theme editor even more intuitive by adding simple drag & drop.
Instead of adding & deleting colors to get them in the right order, you can now simply drag colors to switch their order. Go and give it a try!
Extra options in bar & column chart
Bar & column charts are great to compare values against one another. Although it’s a quite simple chart type, that doesn’t mean you can’t do more complex stuff with it!
Let’s look into some new advanced functions we added to these charts.
Manually set your axis range
When creating a bar or column chart, your axis will start at zero by default, and end at the maximum value of your dataset.
However, in some cases, you might want to narrow down (or broaden) the range of the axis. Therefore, we’ve added an option to set manual axis ranges. That means you can set your own custom min & max value!
For example, imagine you want to keep track how much downtime your platform has had in the past months. In the chart below, it’s very hard to see visually when you’ve suffered the most downtime, because the differences are usually less than 1%.
By setting your manual range between 97% and 100%, it will be much clearer which months were worse, as you can see below.
Add a custom order to your bar & column charts
In Cumul.io, there are different ways to sort the bars in your bar or column charts, and we just added an extra one!
By measure: sort from highest to lowest value, or vice versa
By category: sort alphabetically on category
Sort on other column: sort bar & column charts based on the value of a different column
That’s right. You can now sort your bar or column charts on another column in your dataset. But how does that work? Let’s explain this with an example.
The chart below shows your sales per product. It’s automatically sorted from highest revenue to lowest revenue.
But… what if you want to see the revenue in relation to the number of customers you have per product? Well, in that case you can simply order the chart on the column in your dataset which counts the number of customers per product.
You can now see in one glance that Antax has the smallest number of customers, but accounts for the 2nd highest amount of revenue. You might want to consider boosting sales for Antax!
