Today, I found enough time frame to download and install Lumira1.17 desktop version, thanks to Tammy Powlas that informed us, to download 64 bit in order to get the version 1.17. I have used the Worldcup excel data to taste the new functionalities.
I have created a dataset from local excel file and in the advanced options “detect merged cells” option is added in the new version, which will be very good functionality to use excel that contains merged cells. However I did not use this function in below scenario.
After acquiring data new look of visualization screen appeared with new functionality called related visualization wizard. This is very important for people who need to be guided in order get best look of the data that they are trying to develop a story.
The good thing is proposed visualizations can be filtered by the available grains of the dataset.
Once you finished selecting the best visualization you can continue to develop your story by new creating supporting graphs.
When you want to compose your story than new screen welcomes you to lead you to make the best-fit to your requirements
I have selected board option for this document.
Also input controls can be added to narrow data and focus on some details.
I really like the new functionalities and look of Lumira, which is more stable and full of guidance at a glance.
