With May ending, we want to present all the enhancements and new features we are introducing to AKTEK iO. If you are already a customer, you can also go to our helpdesk and check our step-by-step guide to use these new features.



Geo Map

We slightly enhanced our maps. Now you will notice that your map will automatically zoom in on the region where your data is, allowing you to start analyzing it right away.

Dashboards filter

We know the importance of filtering your data, and we understand how important it can be for data analysis purposes. That’s why we have created a new button for Dashboards that will allow you to filter the data inside those charts according to the fields on your report. If you have more than one graph on your dashboard, you'll be able to filter the data inside all the graphs or exclude those you don't want to filter.

Smart Filter

Save a filter

Based on your feedback, we are bringing back the possibility to save a filter and re-use it wherever needed: on reports, dashboards, networks, etc.

All you need to do is:

  1. After adding your rules, click on “Save filter” at the bottom left.
  2. Give an indicative name to your filter
  3. Make it public if you want your colleagues on iO to use it as well. Or just leave this toggle disabled, and you will be the only one who can see this saved filter.

You can also browse and apply existing filters. Find them under “Browse Filters” at the bottom left.

More fields supported in Smart filters

As your data grows, you may need more sophisticated filters to narrow down the data of interest at a specific time. To help you, iO is now supporting the following fields to be used in smart filter rules: Single reference, multiple references, connected references, record tag, Time, and Date & Time.AKTEK iO smart data filters


Bulk Upload

Bulk upload has never been easier! A new way to bulk upload your data is by doing a simple copy-paste from Excel sheets or entering manually many rows of data (in a table format). You can even bulk upload a single reference, multiple references, and connected references.

Curious to know how does it work? Please follow these simple steps:

1- When you add a new record (any report), you will notice a grid icon on the top right corner of the new record form.

2- A table will appear when you click this icon, as shown in the example below. 

3- You can start entering the records manually here, one after another, or simply copy-paste from your excel.

4- Click on Save.

If any data is incorrect or any mandatory field is missing, you will get notified before saving.

Dashboard templates

We know it’s common to create a line graph, bar chart, and pie chart when you have numerical data, especially if you also have a date field and track things over time.

It’s also common to create a Geo map when you have locations in your data.

For this reason, we have added some dashboard templates that will give you all of the above in a few clicks! The steps to follow are:

1- Go to the data structure of the desired report. (Admin > Data > Edit your data structure)

2- Under the properties, scroll down to Features and select:

  • Geotagged in the case you have location data. Then choose a name and the Geo field.
  • Time Series in the case you have Date/time field. Then choose a name for the Date/Time field.
  • AMP - only if it’s enabled on your license.

3- Save.

4- Now, if you go back to the report where your data is sitting, you will notice a new icon on top to generate a dashboard. The system will propose some templates based on the feature(s) enabled (AMP, Geotagged, Time series).

5- Select the desired template, give it a name and click on Confirm.

That’s it!

Recently used

We added a new section to your home page (or Explorer). This section will show the last ten visited pages to help you quickly find the frequently used sections, records, dashboards, etc.

The shortcuts will be created automatically here for your convenience.

Quick notes:

1- You can expand and collapse this section as needed.

2- These shortcuts are visible only to you and not the whole company. If you want to create public shortcuts, please refer to our helpdesk's Folders and buttons page and look for “Creating shortcuts”.
