  1. Auto-Expanded Column Labels in Pivot Mode: A simple enhancement helps for better user readability when using pivot mode in a Kurve report.
  2. Recycling Custom Column Names: A deleted Custom Column name label can now be used again when you create a new Custom Column!
  3. Under the Hood Upgrades: Additional tweaks to features and functionality that make the app better, fix hidden bugs, and improve user experience.

Auto-Expanded Column Labels in Pivot Mode

Understanding data shouldn't be a chore. That's why readability of your pivoted data with auto-expanded column labels was prioritized! Say goodbye to unnecessary formatting and hello to a more intuitive, user-friendly interface. Now, your eyes can effortlessly glide across the screen, focusing on what matters most—your insights.

With this enhancement, Kurve for TRIRIGA v1.25 ensures that every bit of information is presented in a clear and concise manner. Whether you're analyzing your projects by location, statuses, or identifying trends over time by month, the pivot enhancements make deciphering data a breeze.

In previous versions of pivot mode, column labels were auto-collapsed (see left image), meaning users would need to expand on the Month in order to see the additional column breakdown of Type. In v1.25, the column labels are now auto-expanded (see right image). You can see the Month (April) and the Type (Commercial, Hotel, etc.) automatically visible upon opening the report.

Recycling Custom Column Names

Flexibility is key when it comes to customizing your TRIRIGA experience. In v1.25, a game-changer has been introduced - recycling column names. Have you ever deleted a custom column name, only to wish you could use it again in a new context? Now you can!

With Kurve for TRIRIGA v1.25, you have the freedom to repurpose deleted column names, streamlining your workflow and eliminating unnecessary naming conflicts from past choices. It's all about empowering you to customize your report setup in TRIRIGA exactly the way you want it.

In this example, we've created a Kurve Custom Column called 'Test.' We can delete this column, create a new column, and now reuse the name 'Test' with this new column!

Various Under the Hood Upgrades

You might be wondering, why all this focus on optimization? The answer is simple: we believe that every second counts when it comes to your work in TRIRIGA. By fine-tuning Kurve for TRIRIGA, we're helping you save time, increase productivity, and make more informed decisions based on your data.

While new features are always exciting, the backbone of any reliable software lies in its stability and optimization that goes beyond surface-level improvements. That's also why Kurve v1.25 also includes crucial under-the-hood upgrades aimed at enhancing the overall application.
