Changelog September 2022

“Wake me up when September ends.” 🎶 Just like that, we’re woken up by the fact that the air is crisp, and it’s definitely fall. 🍂 It’s been full-on at Whaly in our “back to school” mode! To get a glimpse into what we’ve been up to, check out our latest Product updates and Marketing resources below.

🛠 Revamped Workbench UX

We’ve been hard at work enhancing the Whaly experience for data analysts. Our Workbench is a tool that’s specifically dedicated to analysts, and is where they model out the data. We’ve made UX improvements within the Workbench for analysts / builders, by:

  • Offering a multi-tab experience to maximize productivity.
  • Providing the ability for analysts to better explore their data.

⚡️ Query Optimization

We’ve simplified and enhanced how you can run queries. Now,

  • You can control how your datasets are cached, so queries can be sped up.
  • You have the capabilities to materialize your queries as View or as Tables, allowing you to reuse your results in other tools. This way, you can also speed up query time.
  • We alert you when there are issues with materialization, so you’re always aware when your data is stale.

🌊 Flow Improvements

We have two new features in Flow within the Workbench.

  • Group by: You can now use the “Group By” function to categorize data from your initial set.
  • Union: Our “Union” function enables you to create combined tables, which can be handy for big marketing tables.

🔗 Selective Sync

Get a better understanding of how your data is synced through our connectors. Select which tables you want to sync, and how (Full table vs. Incremental).
