What's new in Sigma

Workbook elements

Customizable table styles (Beta)

Customize style and format settings for table, pivot table, and input table elements.

Sigma provides style presets for out-of-the-box aesthetics and readability, and you can customize all style components independently for more personalized table designs. For more information about table style options and how to customize them, see Customize table styles.

Calculation columns in input tables

Calculation columns allow you to use formulas to populate input table column data. To utilize a calculation column, open the element menu, select Add new column > Calculation, then enter a formula in the formula bar.

Duplicate input table columns

Duplicate columns in input table elements the same way you can in table and pivot table elements. Click the caret () in the column header to open the column menu, then select Duplicate column.

Highlight rows with {value}

The highlight functionality allows you to quickly identify rows with a common value. Right-click any cell containing the value you want to highlight, then click Highlight rows with {value}. Sigma automatically creates a conditional formatting rule that can be modified or deleted in the Element format panel.

Workbook features

Enhanced version tag review workflow

When a user doesnโ€™t have permission to use a protected tag, they can submit a request for an authorized user to review and apply the tag (authorized users include all Admin users and any user whoโ€™s granted permission to use the tag and also assigned to an account type with the Create, edit, and publish workbooks permission enabled). This action triggers the following improved review and approval workflow:

  1. Sigma notifies authorized users of the request by email and directly in the application.

  2. Authorized users can review the request in the workbookโ€™s version history.

  3. Sigma provides a reviewer with the option to approve or deny the request. If the reviewer approves the request, they can set the requested tag or choose a different one.

  4. Sigma removes the request from the version history and notifies the requesting user of the reviewerโ€™s action by email and directly in Sigma.

While the request is pending, the user who submitted it can return to the version tag feature and update their request.

Version tag filter in version history

Filter a workbookโ€™s version history by applied or requested version tag to view a more focused list of records.
