New Features

  • Job Cost - Two new dimensions are available: Customer Rep, and Job Rep.  Customers who use these fields for supervisor, inspector etc. will now be able to classify their jobs according to one or both dimensions.  
  • Time Tracking - We added:
    • Service Item Rate, and a calculated field for hours x Item Rate for easier reporting in Excel Pivot tables.  This was in addition to the previously existing Billing Rate, and/or Price Level Rate.
    • Source Name to encapsulate both Vendors, Employees in one field
  • TABLEAU, TABLEAU, TABLEAU! - We now have out of the box examples for Tableau 8.2 users (https://www.tableau.com).  Load your subject, and just open up the Tableau shell for that subject from the Configuration Tool.  No configuration needed!  All of your dimensions, hierarchies, measures are pre-configured, with correct formatting, and aggregation defaults.

Tableau Software

  • PowerPivot Examples - Enhanced examples for out of the box use:
    • Inventory Forecasting
    • Inventory with Sites/Lots
    • Profit and Loss with General Ledger Detail
  • PowerPivot Enhancements - Things to help you create reports/analyses quicker:
    • We have created hierarchies for automatic date drill down: e.g. year-month-date, year-quarter-period-date for 5253Tax Year, etc.
    • Days of the week, Month names now come out in proper order - not alphabetically
    • Rate fields will default summarize as average
    • You can choose the default date ranges to use in QQube e.g. 5 years of data instead of the default 25.  This will exponentially speed up the PowerPivot reports.
