Automation for Effortless Workflow

Gone are the days of recreating queries on your dashboard after discovering valuable insights. Our new feature automates this process, saving you time and ensuring you can focus on analyzing your data rather than repetitive setup tasks. Once you’ve found the answer to your question in the messenger feature, simply convert it into a dashboard tile, and you’re good to go!

3. Convert to Dashboard Tile: With just a click, transform your query into a fully interactive dashboard tile.

4. Continuous Monitoring: Your newly created dashboard tile is now part of your Dashboard, providing real-time updates and allowing you to monitor the metrics that matter most without manual intervention.
