This update is important! We have released a significant range of exciting New Features and User Interface Changes to make your Spark Chart experience easier and to give you even more power.
We have taken on board a lot of feedback balanced with the delivery of highly requested new features. In addition to new features, the update focuses on reducing the number of clicks to accomplish tasks, amalgamating menus, removing buttons and integrating screens together, and modifying the terminology. The change log is massive, and we are very much looking forward to getting this out there. Next, we will be moving on with more features and a second phase of UI and UX changes.
Please take the time to click here and read about all the changes in detail.
In summary, the release includes:
- Many terminology and menu changes throughout the Dashboard and Projects. The changes are intended to make the user interface more intuitive and take into account extensive user feedback.
