Variable Menu Improvements & More

Posted on by

Hello readers! We hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as we are. Today, we are happy to announce a couple of improvements to SimplyAnalytics designed to help you get your research done more efficiently. Let’s check it out!

Variable Menu Changes

This first of two changes to the variable menus is rooted in customer suggestions that revolved around the same sort of question, namely: is there a way to quickly add in additional years or the # or % version of this variable? As of this week, the answer to this question is yes!

Now, when you are in a report and want to add in other years of data quickly, simply click on the variable name and refer to the Add Other Years text in the menu that displays.

In the example below, the chosen data variable is # Hispanic or Latino Population for the year 2021, but notice in the Add Other Years option, you are now welcome to instantly add in years from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2025 and 2026.



All you need to do is select the desired year(s), close out the menu/click away and voila! The new years are automatically added to your report:


Equally great is that users now have the ability to add in the other variation of your presently selected variable. For example, if you have # of adults walking to work in your report, you can immediately add in the % variation. This is also available from within the variable menu.


The percent version is now added to your report:


Create Data Table from Visualizations

We also wanted to update readers on this wonderful new feature that has flown under the radar, but is extremely useful.

When you are in a visualization such as a map or histogram or bar chart, you are now able to instantly create a data table based on the underlying data of the visualization. 

Check it out!

All you have to do is click on View Actions > Create Data Table and SimplyAnalytics will automatically generate a table for you. How cool is that?!

We hope you enjoy these new enhancements to SimplyAnalytics –  thank you as always for sending us these types of suggestions for improvements, we do listen!

Have a wonderful remainder of 2021, and as always please feel free to email us at anytime at:
