What's Changing

Anomaly Detection on KPIs

A new anomaly detection algorithm will detect data that does not fall within expected confidence intervals. This will appear on time-series-based KPI charts. A red dot will point out the anomaly, and a gray shape shows the expected confidence bounds. You can right-click on the dot and choose "Explain Anomaly" to learn more about the data. This feature is available to all users.

For Advanced Analytics subscribers: When creating time-series KPI charts, you'll have the option to format the anomaly options in Chart Settings. 

Save a view on Liveboards

When viewing any Liveboard, even one you don't own, you can now save a "View" which will keep your filter choices in place.

Monitor KPIs - with filters

KPI alerts are a great way to get notified about your data based on a schedule or a threshold condition. Now, any filters you've applied to the liveboard will be included in your KPI alert. Learn more about KPI Alerts.
