New Date Format

 

New

  

We made it much easier to input dates into Causal. Instead of date(2021,09,30) you can just type 2021/09/30 and Causal will automatically convert it to a date variable.

Show Percentages in Pie Chart

 

New

  

Pie Charts can now show percentages instead of values. You can find this option in the advanced settings of the pie chart visual.

Custom first cohort name

 

New

  

We added an option to the advanced model options that lets you change the name of your first cohort. This can be useful if the first cohort of your model also contains all previous months.

Goal seek

 

New

 

 

If you know the result that you want to get for a variable, but are not sure what input values you need to get that result, you can use the new goal seek feature in Causal. Just right-click on the output variable and select "Goal Seek" from the context menu. You can also tell causal to minimize or maximize the variable.

New

You can change the aggregation function by right-clicking on the variable:
