Oh, the joys of summer! Sizzling temperatures, the smell of sunscreen, cookouts with family and friends…and of course, the newest release of Kurve!
Version 1.14 has officially joined the party and it’s making quite the splash! This release is packed with 6 NEW features and functionality to make reporting on your TRIRIGA data more efficient and compelling:
How does this newest release of Kurve solve today’s TRIRIGA reporting problems? Grab your favorite floaty and let’s dive right in!
You want a more condensed view of your data in a report - no problem!
Make your way to the ‘Settings’ tab in a Kurve Report and change the size of the table to:
Changing the size of the table will automatically adjust the font size and line height so you can fit more (or less) data on a page.
HOT TIP: If you’re like me and want to eliminate scrolling down the table to view rows, make your way to ‘Settings’ and change:
You may need to tweak the settings a bit depending on your screen size, but on a 13-inch screen, now all you need to do is flip to other pages to quickly scan through the rest of your data!
You all love the ability to add a static plot line to a graph to show a threshold (added in v1.12), well now you can add PLOT BANDS!
Bands are perfect for:
So, if you need to show budget variances and where you went over and under budget or hit a particularly high number of service requests in between April and June, PLOT BAND it!
You need to tell a compelling story with your data and using a feature like this makes your reporting capabilities even more effective!
Convert any pie chart and make it into a donut! Head to your Graph Settings where you can choose your “inner size %” – essentially carving out the middle of the pie and making it a donut.
Pie and donut charts are both meant to show parts of a whole and compare data, but there are a couple differences worth noting:
If you are trying to show a breakdown of your capital projects budget for the year or space utilization by vacancy status for a particular floor or building, try giving either one of these graph types a go!
Ultimately the choice is yours depending on the story you’re telling with your data!
Improve readability by changing the font size and color within a Kurve graph.
Make your way to the ‘Edit Graph’ window to change your axes, legend, and/or tooltips text size to:
Just like when creating a new color template for your graphs, use our handy color picker when selecting a text color. You can always input an RGB or Hex Code # if you have that available.
If you were in the Kurve Report Settings adjusting your table size, you likely noticed a few new buttons:
These buttons ultimately make your life easier if you want to reset your entire report rather than make individual changes.
Reset Columns will adjust your report back to the default view removing any grouping or aggregations, column width sizing adjustments, and column drag-and-drop rearrangement.
Remove Custom Columns will bulk delete all Kurve Custom Columns added to a report.
Clear All Filters will bulk remove all filters applied to your report.
Being able to export Kurve Reports to a Microsoft Excel file is super handy – especially if you need to share this data with someone who doesn’t have login access to TRIRIGA.
While all that TRIRIGA data inside an .xlsx file is extremely important, and so is having more information on the export itself.
That’s why you will now see the Kurve Report Name AND time the report was exported included when you open your download.
Kurve shows real-time data every time you log in to the system, so having the time stamp of the export will ensure you and your colleagues know exactly when this file was taken from the system - no need to manually do this yourself.
Now that’s what we call a time-saver!
Wishing you all a safe and happy summer! Till next time!
