Sharing data connections

 

New

  

You can now share a data connection (e.g. share your BigQuery connection so others can build data sources off of it), as well as create multiple data connections for the same integration (e.g. connect to multiple Google accounts). See our docs here for more info!

Scenario change highlighting

 

New

  

When you preview a scenario, Causal will now highlight the cells with changed formulas in a darker color:

You can hover over the highlighted cell to see that variable's previous formula:

Read-only spreadsheet in dashboard

 

New

  

You can now share a read-only spreadsheet view via the model dashboard. To enable this, first share your model, then turn on the "Read-only spreadsheet" option under Dashboard in the model sharing modal.

Anyone who has view access to your model will now be able to see the spreadsheet's formulas/values, but won't be able to make any edits to the underlying spreadsheet.

Note: This option is off by default!

Automatic data refresh (choose exact time)

 

Improvement

  

Causal already allows you to automatically refresh your data sources (on a daily, weekly or monthly basis).

We just added the ability for you to set the exact time and the day of the week or month in the header of the data source preview. See our docs here for more.

Scenario filter in Views

 

New

  

You can now filter for scenarios in views! This means that you can give people access to a particular scenario/s only (e.g. the High Growth scenario), and not allow them to see other scenarios (e.g. the Worst Case scenario).

See more on scenario filters here, and sharing scenarios via views here.

Better toolbar

 

New

  

We've made changes to the toolbar to improve usability and consistency.

Most significantly, the Scenarios button now shows the number of scenarios in your model, directly in the toolbar.

Improvement

  

You can now switch between the Spreadsheet and the Visuals workspaces in one click, directly from the toolbar.

Folder sharing 📂

 

New

  

We are launching a beta of folder sharing in Causal 📂 tl;dr you can now share at the folder-level, similar to g-drive (more on the nuts & bolts of how permissioning works here).

It is currently in beta, so please treat with a degree of caution. Given it is a new feature you may also experience some issues (or have feedback), please reach out to us if you do!
