Welcome to 2022! We've been busy cranking out some features that we can't wait to see you use and help us improve. Without further ado:
Dashboard: Strip Logs
Strip Logs is a new dashboard widget that allows you to visualize continuous streams of data, in a strip. One example of this type of data, from the mineral exploration industry, is the composition of the soil in a test hole that's being dug to obtain a soil sample. Using strip logs would allow you to visualize the various soil horizons, the mineral content observed, etc, for each test hole in a field, in the structure of the sample itself.
Because Grid enables rapid data entry for field personnel, this widget also displays its visualization as the data becomes available, in real-time. This allows management staff to see the sample results as early as possible, as soon as field personnel put it into the app. The days of waiting hours or even days to see results is a thing of the past.
Dashboard: YQM Functionality
When you add any chart widget to your dashboard, the chart now lets you display your data by Year, Quarter or Month (YQM). Before we launched this feature, if you wanted to chart your data by year, quarter or month (or some combination of the three) you'd have to create multiple dashboard widgets, one for each view.
Data: Web Forms
Instead of using the Worksheet interface to input your data, you can now use an auto-generated Web Form to enter data into the Worksheet.
UI Improvement: LTW Coloured Buttons
When you use the Link To Worksheet column in a Worksheet, you can now define colours for the various buttons that will appear in the mobile app. So if you're using the Link To Worksheet column to allow your users to pick options from a menu, the options can now be colour-coded and when the user is entering data, they'll see those colours in the mobile app as well.
We've Been Busy!
The Grid family has grown: we've just on-boarded new staff onto our dev, growth and content teams. These hires will allow us to expand our product offering, reach out to new customers and partners, and bring efficiency and cost-savings to the frontline operations of many more organizations over 2022 and beyond.
One Last Thing: We're constantly looking for great talent to join us in delivering the very best product we can, so if you know someone who might fit right for us, please don't hesitate to let us know!
