Hide numbers inside the Radar chart

As highlighted in our recent blogs, we've introduced an enhancement to the radar chart, enabling you to set a maximum value for all measures. However, we understand that visual clutter can be a concern.

That's why we're thrilled to announce a new toggle feature that allows you to hide those potentially overlapping numbers within the chart.

Now, enjoy not only the flexibility of maximum value control but also a cleaner and more visually pleasing representation of your data. Enhance your chart visualization effortlessly with this new toggle option!

Automatically create new elements on Reference fields

When loading a reference field from a table containing values not present in the referenced database, you can seamlessly incorporate these values into the referenced report.

Utilize the bulk upload/edit matrix, and if the system doesn't recognize a new entry, a prompt with an option to "Create" that record in the corresponding database will appear. To enable this feature, simply toggle the "Add Create button next to the drop-down selection" option.
