Now you’re able to save your most used queries as favorites so you can find the queries you need, when you need them.
Query organization categories
Find what you’re looking for faster with new query organization categories on the left sidebar like Recently updated, which lists all queries that were updated over the past 30 days.
Reuse existing queries
Add existing queries to new dashboards, save as a new query, or export.
Query usage log
See where and on how many dashboards your queries are being used to easily understand the extent and impact of any changes you make.
Column sort dropdown
This update to the user interface makes it easy to customize sorting your queries by dataset, visualization type, and more.
Add multiple queries at once
Create new dashboards in a flash by adding multiple queries at once.
Bulk delete queries
Now you can bulk delete queries that are not used so you can organize your Explore instance and ensure you keep only relevant queries.
Finally, we’ve added the number of dashboards in which a query is used. This gives you a better understanding of what queries are used, and the ones you may want to consider deleting.
