  • Establish a secure connection between your databases and Preset using SSH Tunneling1: You can now connect your databases to Preset securely via SSH tunnels using API or SQL Alchemy forms. SSH tunneling enhances security by routing data traffic through an encrypted SSH connection, offering an alternative to native data encryption.

New Features

Self-Serve Analytics

Drill to Detail

  • Create datasets and visualizations more quickly with UI/workflow enhancements: We’ve built additional logic to the navigation to make creating and locating datasets, charts, and dashboards faster and more intuitive. For example, after connecting a database, you can now immediately see the option to create a dataset in the "+" menu in the navigation bar.

Themability and Customization

  • Personalize your dashboard layout with the horizontal filter bar: You now have the option to arrange the dashboard filters above the visualizations. If you're embedding Preset dashboards into a custom application, the horizontal filter bar enhances the usability and readability of your tables and charts.
