Differences between New and Classic experiences for grids

Introduced in 2023.1

Updated in 2023.2

Deprecated in 2024

To switch between New and Classic experiences, use the New Experience toggle above the data grid.

Let's delve into the differences between two experiences.

New experience features

The new experience introduces a range of features that enhance speed, customization, and real-time updates for data views. Its main advantages are:

  • Higher performance: On average, the new grids outperform the classic ones by 150-200%. In certain scenarios, the performance gain can reach an impressive 300%. This enhanced performance ensures a smoother and more responsive user experience, allowing you to work with data more efficiently.

  • Real-time updates: Stay informed with up-to-the-minute information as data views are automatically updated every 10 seconds. This means that any changes made to the underlying data will be reflected in your views without delay, ensuring you have the most current and accurate data at your fingertips.

  • Drag-and-drop customization: The new experience offers a user-friendly approach to customization. Using intuitive drag-and-drop functionality, you can easily customize the layout of your data views and organize the information in a way that suits your specific needs and preferences. Whether it's rearranging columns, resizing elements, or repositioning components, the drag-and-drop customization feature allows for effortless personalization.

  • Intuitive filter builder: Quickly filter your data using the new filter builder, which offers embedded date range filters. This intuitive interface simplifies the process of refining and narrowing down your data. With a few clicks, you can create precise filters that help you focus on the data that matters most to you.

  • Combined SQL queries and filters: Combine SQL queries with regular filters to perform complex data manipulations. This means you can leverage the power of SQL to perform advanced data manipulations alongside the convenience of standard filters. Whether you need to perform complex data retrievals or run custom analysis, the ability to integrate SQL queries with filters provides you with a robust tool-set for data exploration and analysis.

  • Preview linked objects: Gain deeper insights by previewing linked objects directly from your data views. This feature enables you to explore the connections and relationships between different data points, enhancing your understanding and analysis of the data.

  • Real-time customization feedback: The new experience provides instant feedback on customization changes. As you make adjustments to the layout and configuration of your data views, you can visualize the changes in real-time. This allows you to see how your customizations affect the presentation and organization of the data, ensuring that you achieve the desired layout and visual representation.

  • Multi-row selection: Working with multiple rows of data is more efficient. You can select multiple rows from different pages within your data view, making tasks like exporting data, performing bulk updates, or running workflow actions much easier. This feature streamlines your workflow, saving you time and effort when working with large datasets.

  • Shared views based on group membership: Access to shared views is based on user membership in groups. You can instantly share views with groups of technicians, enabling seamless communication and collaboration on data analysis and insights.

  • Conditional formatting: In the new experience, the ability to customize the appearance of your data by providing visual cues and highlighting important information is integrated with an intuitive drag-and-drop functionality and a user-friendly filter builder. This combination simplifies the task of fine-tuning data visualization in a way that is not only more efficient but also incredibly user-friendly.

  • Density options: You can adjust the spacing between rows in new data views to match your preferences. Three distinct density options are available: Comfort, Compact, and Condensed.

Classic experience features

Being deprecated in 2023.2

The features unique to the classic experience are:

  • Shared views based on security roles: Access to classic shared views is based on user membership in security roles.

  • Display records in multiple rows: View records in a multi-row format, optimizing screen space and facilitating efficient data browsing.

  • Borderless design: Enjoy a clean and borderless interface providing a cleaner and more streamlined visual presentation of the data.

Transition to the new experience

Starting with version 2023.2, the classic experience is being deprecated, with plans to phase it out in 2024. To ensure a seamless and optimized experience, convert your classic data views into the new experience. The conversion duplicates the original view settings within the “new experience” interface, which guarantee smooth and hassle-free transition.
