Again we have fantastic news: the brandnew February 2020 release is out now! We’ve worked hard to make the new Web Client accessable for the public – and we managed it already 1 month earlier than announced! Try it! Remember, the Web Client is the light-weighted alternative to our existing Excel Client, it is the Interface for your Collector Users to deliver their monthly/weekly/daily data.
(1) New Landing Page in the Web App
Login into the the Web App (or register at first for an account) and you will see the new landing page which shows the gallery with the available showcases:
Please note: all users who already have created their own data1.io application are directly connected to the Web App for their individual application and will not see the new Landing Page. We are working on that to deliver the new landing page to all user roles …
(2) New Showcase “Group Controlling 2.0”
Clicking the button Enter on the Landing Page opens the showcase with the new Web Client:
Please note that the button Write is only active if you select a bottom level element from the Dimension Tree. Change the data and try to write them back!
Activating a sum level element shows the aggregated values for this element (sum):
(3) Download as XLSX
The Web Client is based on an Angular Spreadsheet Webpart – the really good thing is that the spreadsheet can be downloaded as an XLSX and opened with normal Excel:
(4) Formatting and Upload the updated XLSX
The file can not only be downloaded and opened in MS Excel but you can also format it, activate sheet protection and use many more well-known features in Excel. After you`ve finished you can upload the updated file into your individual data1.io application.
This way it is possible to make the Spreadsheet looking nice (please compare the current spreadsheet with the one shown in the January 2020 Release).
Please note: with this release the download / upload feature is not yet available in private data1.io applications. This will come soon!
(5) Compatibility with the Excel Client
We presented this feature already in the January 2020 Release, but also in February hard work was necessary to make the 2 clients “under the hood” more compatible (a process that will continue over the next months). This makes more sophisticated templates like the one for the new showcase possible. Here is the “companion Excel Client” for the new showcase:
This Excel Template can be downloaded here or in the “Public Showcases” gallery of the data1.io Excel Client:
As you can see, the established Excel Client provides now 4 Showcases: the first 3 are only available for the Excel Client and the 4th is the first “dual showcase” which is available for both clients.
Hope you will like it!
Sure, the new Web Client is still an early version and we will heavily invest to make it even ten times better. So we are very curious for your feedback! Please let us know what you think about it and what kind of collection processes you would prefer to automate with data1.io.
