What's new

November 1, 2022 ✨

You are about to enter another dimension. Next stop—The Time Zone!

  • You can now choose whether to display time and timestamp field values as they were entered or in the current user's time zone.

    For example, if a timestamp field is set to display As Entered and if a user in Los Angeles enters "10/2/2022 2:02 am" in the field, then users in all time zones will see "10/2/2022 2:02 am". But if the field is set to User Time Zone, then the Los Angeles user still sees "10/2/2022 2:02 am" but a Beijing user now sees "10/2/2022 5:02 pm".

  • To change the setting, open a spreadsheet view containing the field you want to set. Click Down arrow button in the column for the field and choose Edit Field. For Time Zone Setting, choose As Entered or User Time Zone. Even though the setting can be changed only in a spreadsheet view, the setting applies to the field in any view with the same data.

  • Time and timestamp field data is filtered, sorted, grouped, and summarized based on how the date and time is displayed, so changing this setting can affect how these features present data.

  • For existing time and timestamp fields, the time zone setting is As Entered, so how the data is displayed isn't changed. For existing data, the UTC+0 time zone is used. For newly entered data, the current user's time zone is used.

  • Support in Claris Pro apps is coming soon! For now, values entered in these fields in Claris Studio won't necessarily match what's displayed in Claris Pro apps, and values entered in Claris Pro apps won't include time zone information to display values as expected in Claris Studio.

Trick out your dashboards with filters

  • The new quick filter object in dashboards lets you add multiple items to a filter. Each item in a quick filter is simply a button users can turn on or off to apply the filter. Along with dashboard filters, which let users choose operators and enter values, quick filters give users an easy way to further filter data on a dashboard.

    For example, you can create a quick filter with an item for each quarter (2022 Q1, 2022 Q2, etc.), where each item specifies a date range. Then users simply click 2022 Q2 to show only data from that quarter.

  • Dashboard filters and quick filters now let you choose which charts and summaries they apply to. By default, these filters apply to all chart and summary objects based on the same table, but now you can click Gear button on the filter and choose which of those objects to connect the filter to.

  • You can now add multiple dashboard filter and quick filter objects to a dashboard and connect them to the same chart or summary objects. Each filter (dashboard filters, quick filters, and filters defined within chart and summary objects) can further refine the data to display.

Easing the way

  • Breadcrumbs at the top of views just got an upgrade. The last breadcrumb is now editable, so you can change a page or view name while you're in the view. From a page in a form view, you can now click the view name to go up to the form flow.

  • To help us help you better, the feedback box now lets you choose whether we can email you about your feedback if we need to.
