I have an idea:

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Link to Klips used by a data source

    Similar to the way that you can see what data sources are being used in a klip, I think it would be very useful to see which klips a data source is being used it, visible from the data source. This way in case something changes in a data source, you know what klips it is going to affect.

    Plus as use of klipfolio grows, the more data sources are created and the more data sources are replaced and deprecated. It would be helpful to be able to go through and see which ones can be deleted without breaking something.

  2. edit, copy and paste formulas; rearrange series and add components

    entering a formula step by step might be a safe way to get a solid input, sometimes it is really terrifying that you can not edit it using your curosr keys and copy ans paste partys of one formula into the other; maybe a formula editor mode or something like that could help us out

    also, when you want to rearrange series it wuld be great to have a some small buttons facilitating a reorder like you allready have with columns in a table

    and most of all, if you want to add a component, now you have to enter…

    The components work was addressed with a release in the summer of 2014.

    Within formulas, you can currently copy and paste sections of the formula by selecting them and using CTRL + C to copy and CTRL + V to paste elsewhere. We have making this more visible and easier as an item on the roadmap.

    Rearranging series also exists as it’s own topic. (See “Series Ordering in Klip Editor”) This is also on our radar for development in the future.

  3. Would like the ability to duplicate datacources

    We often want to reuse the core bits of an existing datasource. Would be handy if there were an option to duplicate a datasource in the same way that Klips can be duplicated.

  4. Filters

    Allow end-users to apply conditional filters to their Klips.

    For example: Filter the data to show only Products = ABC, and Price < $1,000

    Optionally, allow Klip builders to pre-filter the Klip, or data sources to have filters applied to them before use in a Klip.

    We have been approaching this as a concept called ‘dynamic data sources’. This will allow you to create a user input control, say a drop down with geographies, and put a variable in the data source definition related to geographies.

    The result would be that as a user changes the input control to, say Canada, the data source is filtered to provide data for Canada.

    In the background, an instance of the data source would be created with that value from the drop down populating the variable in the data source query.

    If the instance already exists, the dashboard will leverage that like any other data source. If the instance does not already exist, it would be created.

    We have been testing this kind of thing for a while and are working on productizing it.

  5. Datasource usage

    In the datasource details, show which klips currently use this source.

    This can be achieved now using the API (currently in beta). We are looking into exposing it in the UI in a future release.
