The main focus for the latest ChartsPLUS update (3.0) is to empower the end users to create their own visualizations at application runtime so that Design Studio can be used for creating agile visualizations and data discovery.

In addition to enabling runtime properties ChartsPLUS 3.0 also has several additional enhancements. You can check out the Playlist below for a demo of various new features available in ChartsPLUS 3.0.

Please see below a full list of options available with this new release:

  • Ranking: Ranking allows you to sort and display the data by their Rank (top or bottom).   Ranking can be done based on any measure available in the data source even though the measure is not displayed on the Chart. Click here for more details on this feature.
