Organizing Queries



  • Gal Zohar

    Agree - generally, the queries list could really use some additional columns:

    • Dashboard it's used in
    • Created by (user), created on (date)
    • Maybe some folder structure?

    A similar thing is happening with calculated metrics and calculated attributes - once you start having more than a handful, it's getting hard to manage without a centralized view of all of them, and especially where they are used.

    Same here...I understand this the first iteration of this reporting solution but so far its lacking many features and "user friendliness"  that would prevent me from moving from Good Data to Explore.


    I started a post on the lack of details regarding queries here

  • Stoddard

    Strong agree

    Dear all,

    Thank you for sharing your feedback.

    We will soon be starting a research project which aims at identifying the best way to help you manage large collections of objects (queries, datasets & dashboards). The question we will be answering is - how can we shorten the time it takes you to find what you're looking for.

    We'll reach out back to the community when we kick-off the project & will welcome early feedback,

    Kind regards

    I would love to participate in this project if you need volunteers. The current query management system is not conducive to sharing usage across many users and expecting people to be able to find what they need.

  • Elizabeth Toy

    Love this feedback. Adding folder structuring ability for queries would be great. Seeing a huge list doesn't help me find what I want easily, and while naming conventions could help with that, the names of queries cut off...

  • Nicolas Gorga

    Has there been any update regarding this? Theres too much time wasted because of the lack of organization when it comes to querys

  • Vincent Dollet

    Hi Nicolas, we're aware of the importance to help you manage your resources. We're planning to start the work later this year. Thank you for your continued patience
