Saved Views and Expanded Chart Styling

Justin Woodbridge

October 20th, 2020

Saved Views

With saved views, you can easily pivot and explore your data, stashing away interesting visualizations and divergent analytical threads as you go. Save anything from a simple hunch to come back to later, to a clear-as-day outlier to share with them team in a note.

Expanded chart styling

Style your charts to add headers and subtitles, making it easy for charts to stand alone when shared as PNGs, or embedded as an iframe on your blog posts.

Other improvements and fixes

  • Refined drag and drop preview in note editor
  • Added support for embedded any chart published on Bayes cloud as an iframe
  • Fixed bug causing intermittent crashes when Bayes updates to a new version

Calendar Blocks

Wire up temporal fields to calendar blocks and let users interact with time directly in your note! Check it out in action with this analysis of Trevor's Strava activities over the years.

A More Stable Note Editor

Isaac has been grinding on improving the stability of the note editor, knocking out way too many bugs to list here. Overall, it should be a lot more stable and smooth for you!

We've also been rounding it out with all the essential formatting options you'd expect: lists, blockquotes, and more.

Other updates and Changes

  • Redesigned the block menu
  • Fixed auto-updating crash (hopefully the last time!)
  • Significantly improved drag and drop UX in the note editor
  • Fixed email sign in silently failing
  • Fixed weird default window size in the Mac build
  • Toasts are now fully dismissible
  • We have a fresh design for Bayes Cloud coming your way soon, along with the new explore side design

Other Improvements and Fixes

  • We've started to update the design of bayes.cloud. More changes coming soon!
  • Increased the width of tick to marks for improved legibility

A Better Note Experience

We've been giving the note editor the love it deserves with lots of small refinements, bug fixes, and design refreshes. Some highlights:

  • Refreshed note publishing: We redesigned the note publishing experience for more clarity. It's faster and easier to both publish new notes, and keep track of changes you've made as you publish updates and new versions.
  • Expanded rich text editing: No more plain text notes! Format your document with full-rich text formatting.

Other improvements and fixes

  • Fixed a bug breaking Google sign in
  • Added progress bar to integration data downloading
  • Fixed inner scroll on some charts

Stay tuned for the upcoming overhaul of the Explore screen!
