Fixes & Enhancements this month

General Data Warehouse Updates

  • Date-times the Data Warehouse has displayed some date/times in local time and others in UTC. In order to standardize the format, dates-times will be rendered in the browser based on UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Date-times imported into the Warehouse should be saved as UTC so that the correct time will show currently in all regions of the world, based on your browser settings.
  • When importing a Rule that fails to properly load, no error message showed to indicate an error occurred. This update will activate an error message in the lower right of the screen with the error message.
  • Changing the languages to English (Australian) resulted in dropping the decimal in numbers in the Data Warehouse.
  • Customizing the Quarter Prefix label when configuring the Periods within the Data Warehouse, reverted to the default.
  • Importing a Rule incorrectly showed the Last Modified date format.
  • When editing Module and Dimension attributes the pop-up window header was incorrectly referencing the wrong section of the screen.
  • When using Data Explorer to filter data based on a boolean True/False, the filter was case sensitive and did not properly filter the records unless the case was matched. This update sets the filter to case insensitive.
  • External API fails when a dimension uses a single quote. The result was data failed to load into Power BI/Tableau. This update resolves the single quote error.
  • Monthly Rates on the Currency menu showed the fiscal period label instead of the calendar label.
