  • advanced management of all the available dimensions in the layout
  • creation of custom views of data, which can be later saved and shared to social media
  • improved data display mode, by allowing users to use the ‘Summary’ or ‘Highlighted’ mode in different visualisations
  • many options for customizing the visualizations in tables and graphs mode
  • download of the data and structural items in various formats: MS Excel, SDMX, TSV, CSV, JSON
