We've introduced a suite of powerful metric formatting options that revolutionize the way metrics are managed. These new features address key areas such as metric renaming, currency presentation, and number formatting, simplifying the entire process for users. With this enhancement, users can effortlessly customize and fine-tune their metrics to meet their specific needs, ensuring that data is not only accurate but also presented in a clear and intuitive manner. This new addition is a significant step forward in our commitment to providing a user-friendly and efficient experience for our customers.

The available formatting options for all metrics and widget types are mentioned below. Please note that certain widgets may have limited options based on their characteristics.

1. Name

You can rename the metric in a desired way. The order it picks up is the name you enter in the formatting tab for that metric. If you don't, we'll use the name from our language pack. Just remember, you can't leave this empty, but you can use a space to make it seem empty.

2. Currency

If your data is about money, you can pick the currency you want to use. We'll suggest the currency code from your data source by default.

3. Show Currency Symbol

This helps make your currency look better. Instead of just saying "USD," we'll show the currency symbol, like "$" for dollars or "€" for euros.

4. Metric Type

This is for metrics that involve comparing numbers. You can choose whether they are positive or negative. Don't worry, this only matters if you're comparing numbers.

5. Decimal Places

If you want to show decimals (like 3.14), you can pick how many decimal places you want. The default is two.

6. Enable Number Precision

This makes numbers look simpler. For example, we'll show "112K" instead of "112,345." Just remember, in charts, this only works if you turn it on.

Options for Comparing Data in Some Widgets

When you're comparing data in KPI, Overview, or Table widgets, you can use these settings:

1. Comparison Data

Type: Dropdown

Default: "Both"

Options: "Both," "Previous," "Delta," and "Only Delta"

Use it for numbers, percentages, and other similar data types.

What it does: Lets you choose what kind of comparison data to display. You can show the current and previous data, just the difference, or only the new data.

2. Percentage Change Always

Type: Toggle

Default: On

For percentage data types.

Helpful for metrics like Click-Through Rate (CTR).

What it does: When it's on, it shows the change in percentage as an actual number, not as a relative change. This can make certain metrics easier to understand.

These options give you more control when you're comparing data in specific widgets. They make it simpler to show the information that matters most in your reports.

We are excited to introduce this new feature to our esteemed customers, and we are confident it will make a significant difference in your experience with our software.
