NEW: Data Explorer
Designed to enable non-technical users to query data in a fun, simple, code-free fashion. Prior to this, users had to have a solid understanding of the underlying data model which made an interactive query challenging. The new data explorer makes understanding the data model much easier. Views created in the Data Explorer can be saved for future access as Report Views and edited in the Report Builder.

NEW: Dashboard Builder
The Dashboard Builder is an early, experimental feature we added to this release to allow users to create their own visually appealing dashboards and host these dashboards where the data resides, within the Process Tempo platform. Our mission is to reduce the need for 3rd party applications and instead use Process Tempo to host the data, the metadata as well as the content. We have created an intuitive interface, so business users are able to interact with the data and create dashboards, without the need for developers. Since Process Tempo is not licensed by user it makes for a less costly alternative for dashboards that need to be accessed by a large number of users.
