Sunsetting Time Logging

On the 18th of December, we'll be sunsetting the feature to log time for clients in Swydo and reporting on those time logs in widgets.

Why are we doing this?

As we're working to improve Swydo, we also need to scrutinize our current feature offering and the value each provides our customers. With that in mind, we investigated and found that only a few of our customers have found our time logging capability valuable. Because of this, we will be discontinuing the functionality to free up resources, allowing us to invest in new and improved features that better help our customers.

Do I need to do anything?

On the 18th of December, we'll remove the time overview from the Client pages and remove any time logging widgets from reports. We will also remove all historical time logs available in your account.

If you'd like to keep your historical time logs available somewhere for reference, please move them from our system before the 18th of December.

The Geo Bubble Map allows you to visualize your geographical data on a map. All available geographical dimensions (Country, Region, City, etc.) in our integrations are compatible with this new visual, and you can use our filtering capabilities to lock the zoom to a specific area.

A huge thank you to all of the Beta Program companies for providing us some great feedback to help us improve the chart visualizations during the beta period!

Report page updates

In our latest update, we've made a few significant changes to the page on which you create your reports. All the same features and functionalities are still available, but we've changed the positioning and flows to use them.

We made these improvements with the following goals in mind:

  • Highlight the most frequently used features.
  • Provide a cleaner viewing experience by only showing edit options when you actually need them.

Did we achieve our goals? And what do you think we should update next? Let us know what you think by sending a message to our support team through the in-app chat or sending an email to support@swydo.com!

Important update Facebook & Instagram Insights integrations

Facebook has released a new version of its APIs for Facebook Insights and Instagram Insights, which includes an update to their permissions structure. Because of this update, existing connections for these integrations need to be reauthorized to accept the new permissions structure.

What do I need to do?

If you have a connection with Facebook Insights or Instagram Insights in your account, you will need to reauthorize it before your next report goes out (e.g. your monthly reports on the 1st of June). Connections that are not reauthorized will no longer pull in data; Scheduled reports using them will fail to send until the connections are reauthorized.

If you're using our Facebook Insights or Instagram Insights integrations, you'll have received an email informing you of this breaking change.

Don't know how to reauthorize your connections? Click here!

New & improved chart visualisations

Now available for all customers: 2 new ways to visualize your data & an update to how our existing charts are visualized in reports!



A huge thank you to all of the Beta Program companies for providing us some great feedback to help us improve the chart visualizations during the beta period!

Heatmaps

Heatmaps allow you to easily visualize the most popular (hot) and unpopular (cold) values in a data set. heatmap.png

Treemaps

A treemap is perfect for visualizing how segments in your data compare to each other. treemap.png

Chart updates

We have created the new visualizations from scratch with new technology, meaning we could resolve any issues that weren’t solvable before, while making the charts flexible in such a way that we can start building new features for them in the near future.



The following visualizations have been updated:

  • Bar chart

  • Column chart

  • Line chart

  • Area chart

  • Spline chart

  • Spline Area chart

Height update

The most important difference is that the new charts are slightly taller than before. This was a very difficult decision since the height affects existing reports, but after careful consideration and feedback from our testers, we’ve found that the benefits outweigh the downsides. In the old visualizations, things such as the chart legend would take up a lot of the space from the visualized data, causing this data to be less readable. With the slightly larger height, the readability improves significantly, especially for more complex data.

Because of the height update, widgets might shift slightly in your reports. Please make sure to check your PDFs before they are sent out this month to ensure the layout is still how you want it to be!

As always, let us know if you have any feedback on the new charts or the updated visualizations! All feedback is greatly appreciated and will help us further improve Swydo.
