December 17, 2020

If you’re in a hurry

  1. Fixed: Multiple issues were caused by Sigma’s handling of very large numbers.
  2. Fixed: Numeric filters temporarily could not be added to dashboard visualizations.

Tell me more:

  1. Fixed: A few issues were caused by how Sigma previously handled very large numbers (> ~2^57).  For example, large numbers were exported in scientific notation, despite not being formatted as such in Sigma. We’ve updated how Sigma handles these very large numbers, resulting in the remediation of all related issues.

  2. Fixed: A bug resulted in the inability to add numeric filters to dashboard visualizations. This bug has been fixed.

December 14, 2020

If you’re in a hurry:

  1. We’ve updated Text Match filter options. 
  2. Fixed: A few worksheet actions were failing when applied to number columns. 
  3. Fixed: A visualization tooltip bug has been fixed.

Tell me more:

  1. Text Match filter options have been updated to better represent value excluding use cases. This has been done by adding excluding filter options in place of the ‘exclude’ checkbox. For example, you can now select a Text Match filter value of ‘Does not contain’ rather than selecting ‘Contains’ combined with a check ‘exclude’ option.  Learn more about filters.

  2. Fixed: A handful of actions involving number columns were temporarily broken. Examples of these broken actions include failure to successfully add number column aggregates to pivot tables as well as an inability to format number columns. Most of these broken actions have been fixed; however, we are in the process of identifying any others.

  3. Fixed: Tooltips and other hover actions were broken on charts with custom domains set on an axis. This has been fixed.

December 8, 2020

  7. Fixed: Negative numbers were not formatted correctly when exported to Excel.

Tell me more:

  1. You can now duplicate dashboard elements! Use this feature to duplicate visualizations, images, buttons, etc. To duplicate an element, click the element’s gear icon to open its menu and select ‘Duplicate’. Please note: control elements (e.g. filters) cannot be duplicated.

  2. You will now see a list of recent search terms when you open the search bar in any Sigma page header. Click on any term to start searching. 

  3. We’ve made a series of small updates and bug fixes to improve your experience with Warehouse Data Editing. The changes are as follows:

    • Hovering over a column on the Edit Cell Values page will now display the column’s name and description. This behavior is consistent with spreadsheet columns throughout Sigma. 
    • We’ve made it easier to edit boolean values. When a boolean cell is selected, hit your keyboard’s spacebar to switch between true and false.
    • Fixed: If you clicked the “Save to Warehouse” button while your cursor was still focused in a cell, your new cell value would not be saved.
    • Fixed: Null values were completely cleared if a value that did not match the column’s value type was entered. This has been fixed. A cell’s value will remain unchanged if an invalid value is entered.
  4. A tooltip has been added to location path breadcrumbs. Take for example, the worksheet header information popup, which displays the worksheet’s location. Long location paths are displayed with a ‘...’ to represent mid-path folders (eg ‘Marketing/.../events’). Hovering over this location will now display a tooltip with the full location.

  5. You will now see an identifying type icon to the left of the title in document and warehouse object headers. For example, the worksheet icon will be displayed in all worksheet headers.

  6. Fixed: If your organization uses SSO for authentication, its members will no longer see an option to change their name in Sigma. Although this option was previously displayed in your profile, it would not have resulted in a successful rename. If you wish to change your name in Sigma but do not see the option available in your Profile, please contact your organization Admin.

  7. Fixed: Negative numbers were not formatted correctly when exported to Excel. The sign was positioned on the left side of the cell, while the number was positioned on the right. This has been fixed.

December 3, 2020

If you’re in a hurry:

  1. New functions - Trunc, RoundDown, RoundUp, MRound, Int
  2. Ceiling and Floor have a second optional parameter: factor.
  3. Additional columns have been added to the Admin Embed management page.
  4. Excess clutter has been removed from search results.
  5. The document header caret icon is now an info icon.
  6. Send/Schedule menu items have been reordered in the ••• menu.

Tell me more:

  1. You now have access to a whole new set of functions!
    Trunc: Truncates the input value to the specified number of digits / decimal places.
    RoundDown: Rounds a number down to the specified number of digits.
    RoundUp: Rounds a number up to the specified number of digits.
    MRound: Rounds the input number to the closest multiple of the given factor.
    Int: Rounds the input number down to the largest integer of equal or lesser value. This function is similar to Floor, but does not support Floors new optional "factor" parameter.

  2. An optional second argument has been added to Sigma’s Ceiling and Floor functions. This argument, referred to as ‘factor’, allows you to define a multiple to which your input  number will be rounded. If you are familiar with Ceiling and Floor functions in Excel, you may know this second argument as “significance”. 

  3. Two additional columns have been added to the Admin Portal Embed page: Location and Last Updated. “Location” will show you where your embed lives in Sigma. “Last Updated” is helpful for tracking when you last updated or reassigned an embed. Learn more about Embed Management.

  4. When you search for documents in Sigma for targeted actions, you will now only see results that are relevant to the action for which you are selecting a document.  For example, the "Add Visualization" to dashboard modal will now only show worksheets. This cuts down unnecessary noise so you can zero in on what you are looking for.

  5. The dropdown caret icon in page headers has been switched to an info icon to better represent its content. Click the info icon to view details about a worksheet, dashboard, dataset or table. Contents include information such as document location, last updated date, and document description.

  6. The send, schedule, and export menu items in worksheet headers now match those in dashboard headers. This is an organizational change of the header ••• menu only.

  • Attention Admins! Do you use your organization’s Sigma Usage Dashboards located in your Admin Portal? We’ve recently added “connection type” and “connection name” filters to all four query themed tabs: Query Details, Query Summary, Query By Day, and Query Performance, This will allow you to filter query information by connection type (e.g. snowflake vs redshift) and by connection name (e.g. prod_snowflake vs dev_snowflake). You may want to reference this data to clearly understand how often and when your warehouse is being used, determine if it is sized properly, track how well it’s performing, and more. Learn more about your Sigma Usage Dashboards.

November 25, 2020

  • We’ve released a new dashboard template for Snowflake users! Sigma’s Snowflake Storage Cost template tracks and displays your warehouse’s storage costs by database and time. Learn more.

November 24, 2020 

  • We’ve simplified the UI for creating dashboards from templates. Sigma will search for tables in your warehouse that match your selected template’s data source requirements.

You and your teammates can leave comments to provide additional context, request feedback, make suggestions, ask questions, centralize communication, and more. Mention colleagues in comments to get their attention!  Learn more about dashboard comments.

  • You can now add hyperlinks to images on your dashboards! This works similarly to adding links to dashboard button elements. When your dashboard is in edit mode, open the settings modal from the image element’s dropdown menu. 

  • The “About this...” information section on connection, table, and Dataset pages has been moved to the detail popup in the page header. These details could previously be found on each page’s Overview tab. To open the page detail popup, click on the caret icon in the center of the page header. 

  • Fixed: The 'Data Export' and 'Discard Draft' menu options in worksheet headers were temporarily disabled for worksheets in edit mode. This has been corrected.

Pass through functions allow you to call your warehouse functions directly from Sigma. They are useful if your team uses a warehouse function that is not represented in Sigma’s function index.

  • A maximum bar width has been defined for bar charts. This prevents the undesired “super chunky” bar effect when displaying only a small number of bars.

  • Fixed: A small number of users were unable to convert their old dashboards to Sigma’s current dashboard format. This issue was only present if the dashboard contained a date parameter. The bug has since been fixed. 

October 30, 2020

  • Data Warehouse Editing has arrived!

    Sigma’s warehouse data editing feature allows you and your team to update your warehouse Tables directly from Sigma’s spreadsheet interface. Organization Admins have full control over which Table columns can be edited and what values are acceptable per column. Editing permissions are limited to organization members granted access by an Admin. To get started, visit our instructions on how to Configure Warehouse Data Editing and how to Edit your Warehouse Data from Sigma.

  • Sigma has a whole new look and feel!

    Sigma’s old left hand navigation panel has been replaced with a fixed navigation panel that opens up to full page navigation views. This gives you more navigation space and deeper insight into your documents before you open them. We also aimed to improve high level interactivity and bulk actions on documents.  A slim new header has also been implemented across Sigma’s interface to provide more screen space for your analysis. The new header search bar and advanced search page will also allow you to find content from anywhere in Sigma.

October 27, 2020

  • Admins - you now have the option to preserve warehouse Table column names in Sigma. This can be applied on a per-connection basis. Previously, we have displayed column names in our recommended readable format. These “friendly names” are still applied by default. To use our new preserve warehouse table names option, (1) open the connection in your Admin Portal, (2) click ‘Edit’, and (3) switch off “Use friendly names” under Connection Features.

  • Accessibility text on visualizations now lists the visualization name rather than “Vega Visualization”. This alternative image text is useful for screen readers.

October 21, 2020

  • Admins - the Admin Portal’s People page now defaults to display only active organization members. This will allow you to immediately focus on your existing team without having to filter out or scan over deactivated accounts. To view all members, past and present, or to view only inactive users, use the filter menu near the top right corner of the page.

October 19, 2020

This functionality is accessible via the new Embed page in your Admin Portal. Learn more

  • Fixed: The “Include Nulls” option did not work for worksheet Contains filters. This has been fixed.

  • Fixed: Two bugs have been fixed in the SQL editor. Both cases resulted in unsaved changes to the query.

  • Fixed: A SQL editing bug has also been fixed in the SQL editor interface. This bug made it possible to  the Dataset with not-yet-run SQL changes, resulting unsaved changes. Updates to a SQL Dataset’s query must be run using the SQL tab’s ‘Run’ button prior to publishing.


October 14, 2020

  • Does your team use Sigma’s Embedded Analytics platform to embed your interactive dashboards and visualizations in other internal or external applications? To help you manage your growing embed list, we’ve added an embed management page to your Admin Portal. This page lists all existing public and application embeds for your organization. From here you can search for and view embeds and delete stale ones! Learn more about Embedded Analytics.

October 13, 2020

  • Fixed: Unknown column name errors were being displayed in worksheet columns supporting nested links with four or more levels. Certain column actions would temporarily remove these errors; however, they would reappear if the page was refreshed. This bug has been fixed.

October 9, 2020

  • Conditionally scheduled email reports now display the condition met directly in the email. Now you will automatically know why you received the scheduled report when you did. This becomes particularly helpful when there are multiple conditional schedules for a single report. 

October 8, 2020

  • We’ve added new Text conditions to our conditional scheduling options! You can now schedule your reports to send if a Text column contains, starts with, or ends with a custom text value. Learn more.

  • Our recently released column details modal is now also available on Datasets’ Overview tabs and connection Tables! This feature, which was first released for worksheets in late September, introduces a whole new level of column insight to Datasets and Tables.  Open the Column Details modal from a column’s menu to view top values, value distribution, row counts, and other statistical information.

  • New function alert! An ArrayAgg function is now available in Sigma. You can use this function to aggregate a list of column rows into a single array. Learn more.
    This function is only available for Snowflake connections.

  • Fixed: Worksheet row counts were not recalculated in response to parameter changes. This bug has been fixed.

October 1, 2020

  • Do you still have dashboards built using Sigma’s old dashboard format (pre- April 2020)? If so, you will be prompted to convert to Sigma's current dashboard layout and controls the next time you wish to make edits. Conversion is required to continue making edits to your dashboard; however, it is possible to revert to older versions if you prefer your old layout.
    Sigma’s current dashboard builder was first introduced this past spring. It provides building block templates, improved interactive controls, theming, a mobile friendly layout, interactive visualizations, and more. Learn more.

  • If your organization uses OAuth, all organization members will now see a related info message when creating a scheduled export. This message is a reminder that the schedule will not run if the scheduler's OAuth token expires. This scenario can be mitigated for dashboards by running the dashboard with a service account. Using a service account requires Admin support. Learn more.

  • Fixed: Some large exported pivot table PDFs displayed misaligned rows. This bug has been fixed.


September 28, 2020

  • We’ve updated how null values are handled in Sigma worksheet Include and Exclude filters. Null is now listed in the value selection list for both filter types. This change is in response to feedback that the existing ‘include nulls’ checkbox was not intuitive. This change applies to Include and Exclude filters in worksheets only. Learn about filters.

  • It is now possible to sort pivot table columns directly on dashboards. This new feature has arrived hot on the heels of dashboard table chart sorting (released last week). The introduction of dashboard visualization sorting means authors and viewers alike are no longer limited to sort orders predefined on the underlying worksheet. Learn more.

September 25, 2020

  • A detailed summary of column statistics is now available for worksheet columns! Open the Column Details modal from you column’s menu to view top values, value distribution, row counts, and other statistical information.

To refresh your data, type  ⌘ ⇧ R . Other available keyboard shortcuts can be looked up in-product by typing   /  on any Sigma page.

  • Previously, when a Slack export notification failed, Sigma would send an error message to your destination channel. To make failures more actionable, we now also send a link to the report. Learn how to schedule Slack notifications.

September 1, 2020

  • We’ve made some UI adjustments to the report schedule frequency section of schedule modals. Schedule options are now listed as ‘Day/Week’, ‘Month’, and ‘Custom’. Additional settings have been added to the ‘Month’ option.  The goal of this change is to improve ease of use. Your existing scheduled delivery times have not been impacted. Learn how to schedule reports.
  • Some auto-sized columns in pivot tables were wider than needed. We have removed our minimum autosize width to prevent excess width on would-be narrow columns.
  • We’ve improved our error messaging for embedded analytics. Hopefully, you will never encounter an error when using Sigma embedding. However, if you do, error messaging can guide you to a solution.

August 31, 2020

  • Inline HTML table chart visualizations are now available for emailed worksheet reports. All existing PNG-formatted table charts in scheduled emails will automatically receive this new format. The ‘Inline’ option is available in the worksheet send and schedule modals under ‘Format as’.

August 13, 2020

  • Sigma’s new worksheet control panel is live!

    The control panel, which houses worksheet filters, parameters, and totals, can be found on the left side of your worksheet. This new design was created to give you better access and insight into your data controls. You can now create and modify control values while simultaneously watching your data respond in real time! Learn more.
  • Text Match filtering is now available on both worksheets and dashboards! Text Match filters search for full and partial matches between your input text and your data’s values, using your choice of Contains, Starts with, Ends with, or Like.

  • It’s time to make your Sigma presence more personal! If you haven’t already, try adding a custom avatar to your Sigma profile. This feature has been around for a while, but it is now easier to use and accepts larger images.

  • Fixed: Manual page breaks in dashboard PDF exports occasionally resulted in blank pages. This has been fixed by removing excess padding at the bottom of some table visualizations.

  • Fixed: Trellis chart sizing and formatting would break when filters were applied. This has been fixed.

August 10, 2020

  • You can now see a detailed query runtime breakdown for your timed out queries! Query runtimes can vary due to network traffic, queue delay, or data warehouse processing time. Sigma’s runtime breakdown allows you to see if and when your query encountered delays.

August 6, 2020

  • Conditional scheduling is now available for worksheets and dashboards!

    Use this feature to attach data conditions to your scheduled worksheet and dashboard exports and notifications. The conditions you specify determine whether or not the notification or export will be sent to its destination at the scheduled delivery time. This feature is particularly useful if you or someone on your team only wants to be alerted of the report status under certain conditions. Learn more.

August 5, 2020

  • Emailed worksheet images are now displayed inline rather than as attachments! This means you can see your data without having to click a link or open an attachment. To send or schedule an email with an inline image, set the Format as field to ‘Image’ in your worksheet’s send or schedule modal. Learn more.
  • User account types are now visible on each organization member’s individual profile page. This can be helpful for new users looking to get a better understanding of their role and privileges in Sigma.

  • We’ve updated the send and schedule modals in worksheets and dashboards. Our goal is to improve your overall export experience, while making room for more functionality to come! Send or schedule an export to check out the new look! Both options can be found in the “Data Export” submenu of your document’s header menu.

  • Dashboard font options are here! You can now select your dashboards’ text and data fonts, getting the look you want for your reports. Learn how.

  • Fixed: Wide Table Charts with autosized columns were horizontally cut off on PDF exports. We resolved this issue by narrowing these tables to fit within the PDF width for export only.

  • Fixed: Some Table Charts exported as landscape PDFs were displaying with missing rows. This issue was related to our dashboard element height restrictions. The bug has been fixed. 

July 23, 2020

  • After an application embed link is created for a dashboard, the person implementing the iframe code can interact with the iframe through javascript actions/events. Events will allow them to listen for variable updates that can then be used to take actions such as passing the variables to different embeds. Learn how.

July 16, 2020

  • Do you send or schedule PDF exports of your dashboards? If so, check out Sigma’s new option to set section page breaks on your dashboard.  Adding page breaks between dashboard sections can greatly improve the look of your exports without impacting how the dashboard displays in Sigma. Section page breaks are individually set per section, giving you control over which sections you break on. Learn how.
  • You can now pass dynamic dashboard control values to linked URLs! These values can be passed to other Sigma dashboards or to external web pages.  To take advantage of this new feature, insert a link with control values in the URL into a dashboard text or button element.
  • You can now specify whether or not your dashboard’s viewers can set values on a hidden control via the dashboard URL. This functionality is helpful if you would like to link one dashboard to another with specific values passed to hidden controls.
    Please note: If a control targets a highlighted chart or coordinated drill down, allowing control input via the URL is required. In all other cases, this option is off by default.

  • When you create a copy of a document, Sigma’s ‘Save a Copy’ modal will now suggest that you save it in your ‘My Documents’ folder unless you have edit permissions on the original document’s parent folder. If you do have edit permissions on the original parent folder, you will instead be directed (but not required) to save it in the original folder.
  • Fixed: We have switched the Parameter “Allowed Values” list to be a “Suggested Values” list. This allows parameters to accept alternate values. Previously, dashboard visualizations would error if you attempted to set a parameter to a value that was not included in the pre-defined “Allowed Values” list. The error hit said: “Invalid Argument - Parameter does not match constraint”.
  • Fixed: Axes were disappearing on scatter charts and line charts that displayed percent fields with a precision of 0. This bug has been fixed.

  • In the past, we did not allow team names to be reused even if the original team assigned the name had been deleted. This would result in a ‘Create Team’ failure if you were attempting to create a new team with the old name. Sigma now supports reusing team names if the team name is no longer used.

  • Fixed: The edit menu and ‘Publish’ button on Dashboards was not appearing for some touchscreen laptops. This has been fixed. The problem was caused by treatment of the laptop as a mobile device rather than taking into consideration its screen size. Dashboard editing is not supported for smaller mobile devices such as phones and some tablets.

  • Attention dashboard authors - you can now make your dashboard charts interactive using dashboard controls!

    Creating interactive charts will give you and your dashboard viewers the power to filter data across your dashboard; click on one chart and it will impact another. Interactive charts are made possible by the bi-directional nature of charts and dashboard controls. Sigma provides two ways to make your charts interactive: highlighting and coordinated drill downs.
  • Dashboard controls now support date binning! Using date-time binning on your date controls will allow you and your dashboard’s viewers to filter one or more visualizations by date part (eg year, month, etc). Learn how.
  • You can now add charts directly from worksheets to dashboards! This option is helpful when you want to (1) create or edit a chart with a target dashboard in mind, (2) add multiple charts from a single worksheet to a single dashboard all at once, OR (3) examine a chart before adding it to a dashboard. When you use this new feature, Sigma will automatically redirect you from the worksheet to the dashboard, cutting down extra steps in your dashboard building workflow. Learn how.
  • Save time when viewing a dashboard by pasting a list of comma separated values into controls that use value lists for input. Learn about controls. 
  • We’ve improved the overall experience of adding and editing links in dashboard text elements.
  • Chart tooltips have gotten a mini makeover. We’ve altered the alignment of data in tooltips to improve their appearance and make them easier to consume.
  • Selected table cells can now be copied by clicking Cmd/Ctrl+C on your keyboard. To learn other available keyboard shortcuts in Sigma, click Cmd+/ on any Sigma page.
  • Fixed: Incredibly long SQL queries sometimes caused the query history modal to freeze up, making it impossible to view sql text for single entries. This has been fixed. 

June 25, 2020

  • We’ve added a “Show Only Selected” option to all value list controls on dashboards. As a dashboard viewer, you can select this option to temporarily limit long value lists to only values you currently have selected. The “Show Only Selected” button can be found at the bottom of each value list popup.

  • Fixed: Previously, long axis titles would visually dominate small charts. We now truncate axis titles in respect to each chart’s size. 

June 19, 2020

  • Attention Single Sign On (SSO) Admins!
    We have set a clear userRole order of precedence between your SSO Identity Provider and Sigma. You can now more confidently configure your organization’s user roles.
    Summary of precedence: A user role configured in SAML will always take precedence over a role set in Sigma. If no user role is declared in SAML, Sigma will next recognize the user role declared in Sigma. If no user role has been declared in either SAML or Sigma, the user role will be defaulted to ‘Viewer’. Learn more

  • New Function Alert! We’ve added Like & ILike.
    These are both logical functions that will allow you to match similar text values rather than exact ones. ‘Like’ is case-sensitive; “ILike” is not.
    Example: In our sample baby name data, the `Like([Name], “%em%”)` will return true for values in the [Name] column that include “em”, like “Gemma” and “Jeremy”. If `ILike`is used, “Emma” will also be included.

  • You can now conditionally format your big number charts! Use conditional formatting to define how you want to visually present various conditions.
    Example: If you want to mark a value of < $10k as below target, you can set conditional formatting to display red when such a condition is met.
