✨ Improvements

📍Delete integrations and delete workflows

Integrations and workflows now have a "Delete" button.

📍Zoom in fixes

If you save the console or the cluster with a specific polygon selected, it will not open zoomed in the next time you open it; we understand that this is not what the user intended, so we zoom out when you open it again to give you a better view.

📍Last location saved

When a console or a cluster is saved with a city or a SAB (Service Area Boundary), the next time that console or cluster is opened, it will open in the same location and will not prompt you for the location again.

📍Account-level grid sizes

We can now add grid sizes that are specific to an account.

🐞 Bug Fixes

📍Reset filter for timelines fix

In the timeline, we added a new "Reset" option recently, which was slightly buggy.

📍Recurring chrons

In workflows, chrons were not running at the expected times in certain edge cases, which we identified and fixed.

Featured image for 🏹 Feature Release: Workflows

With workflows, you can now get notified and take decisions on your clusters by setting thresholds and triggers on operational KPIs

❓How is it useful to me?

To kick off this version of workflows we have enabled Slack notifications every time a certain metric on your cluster reaches a threshold value set by you.

For example, the users will be notified every time:

  • The churn percentage exceeds 30% in the last week

  • The utilisation percentages fall below 10% in the last few hours and so on

You can set triggers and thresholds based on your use cases and requirements!

🛠 How can I create workflows on Locale?

Here's a small guide that will help you get started with workflows!

🔮 What's in store for future updates?

We will be working towards creating workflows that will allow you to:

  • Run intelligent pricing

  • Plan the capacity of your fleet,

  • Targeted communication and many more

with Locale depending on your industry and use case.

🚀Releases

📍Addition of two new types of metrics

  • Distance calculation - You can calculate the haversine distance between any 2 events which have the lat and long attached to them in your data.

  • Time difference metric -You can now use this metric is used to calculate the time taken between any two events.

📍Metric Duplication

You can now duplicate complex metrics with multiple filters to tweak them and see how the metric changes.

📍Exporting a layer

Since we built the layer catalogue, our users have been requesting a way to use these layers in other systems of theirs. Hence, you now have the ability to export these layers from Locale and upload them on your own systems.

🛠 Fixes

📍Filtering to a polygon in clusters

Filtering of polygons to see the data only for a particular polygon was only for consoles until now. Now we have enables this for clusters as well.

✨ Improvements

📍Invitation from "[email protected]"

All the invitations that any user that sends to their teammates to collaborate on Locale now go from "[email protected]"

🚀 Releases

📍Notifications on home screen

You will be able to see all the notifications on the home screen on the product. Currently, there will only be notifications for comments.

📍Hex level filter

Earlier we built a feature where you could filter a particular polygon and see all the metrics in the cluster and analyse data for that polygon only, the same thing now you can also do for hexes.

✨Improvements

📍Clicking on the comment opens the right comment panel

Currently, editing a comment is not allowed on Locale. When you click on the comment, it will open the comment panel on the right for you to loo at the entire thread.

📍Product copy changes

A few texts on the product were not consistent and did not correlate in the user flow, most of those have been fixed.

📍Improved navigation of Email notification 'open console' and 'view comment'

Whenever someone mentions you in a comment or replies in a thread you are a part of, you will get an email notification from Locale notifying you about it. This email has 2 CTA's:

  • 'Open Console' which will open the respective console

  • 'View comment', which will take you to the respective console and zoom-in to the area of the comment.

📍Changes in home-screen card design

On the top of the home-screen we had 2 cards for you to learn more about Locale - Docs and Video. We realised that this is not a recurring use case for our users to for it to occupy such amount of space on the top and so we have made it smaller.

🛠 Fixes

📍Sign up user

Fixed minor bugs in the invitation of new user to come and start using Locale.

📍Sharing cluster link

The link being copied to share the cluster was incorrect. This is now fixed

🚀 Releases

📍Auto-generate ID for Layer Catalogue

ID is a mandatory column for any KML/Geojson to be uploaded on Locale, now we have an option for our users to check a box and we can auto generate the ID for them. However, if this is done, that particular layer can not be appended or updated, it can only be cleared and replaced.

📍Email notification for comments

Now whenever someone tags you in a comment or replies to a comment thread you are a part of, you will be notifies via an email.

📍Polygon level filter

You can not click on any polygon, and say "Filter to this area" and you can view the metrics only for that particular polygon. This currently does not work for hexes, it will be released in the next week.

✨Improvements

📍Removing city

When you select a city from the search bar on Locale, it filters all the data flowing in the console only for that city, this restricted users from looking the data at a country level or viewing it for multiple cities together. We have added a backspace in the search bar, which removes the city so that you can visualize all the data you are sending to Locale.

📍Saving layer pop-up

When you upload a new layer and save a layer on Layer catalogue there was no indication if the layer was saved or not, we have added a small pop-up whenever the request is successful.

🛠 Fixes

We fixed quite a few things on Layer catalogue:

  • Now it supports various edge cases - we have taken care of multiple edge cases that the KML and Geojson can have.

  • Error if layer saving fails - if you layer uploading fails, in most cases it will show you an appropriate error to understand what is missing, instead of a generic error.

  • Saving the layer was getting stuck - while saving the layer you won't get stuck anymore, it will either save or throw an appropriate error.

📍Filter's getting locked when the console is saved - no filters will get locked now

📍Show Entity was empty for any hex or polygon, we have fixed this now.

In the last week we have improved the product, fixed a few things, and released new things as well.

Excited? We are too!

Let's check them out.

🚀 New Releases

📍Home Screen

We have launched our first ever Home screen. It is built on the idea that the users to get their task accomplished as fast and as easily they can when they come on Locale. Our home screen now shows the most recent console and clusters visited by each user. This will be personalised to you.

Another interesting thing we did was let our users know what we are building next and how it will help them - we have added a 'coming soon' tag to whatever we would be building next and when you click on it, you get a sneak peak into what it is and how it will help people take better decisions using Locale.

📍Height in Hex Heat Maps

Now you can look at any 2 metrics you like at the same time, without applying any filters and creating clusters. We have added the capability to view the second metric as height for any metric in any heat map console.

📍Layer Catalogue

You definition of boundaries for a particular city would be different from that of your competitor's and google maps. We have now added the ability to upload any customised boundary that you would like for any city. Currently GeoJSON and KML are the accepted formats.

✨ Improvements

📍Pop-up when saving cluster

Earlier when any cluster was saved, there was no indication to the user if the cluster has been created successfully or if there is some error. Now there is:)

📍3 months Data Download

We only supported a weeks data to be downloaded from our consoles. But as we scale and understand our users better, it made sense to why our users would need to download up to 3 months of data in one go.

📍Adding hex size in the Grid Size selection

We have added the corresponding hex size to each grid size.

🛠 Fixes

  • Changing last updated timestamp to local timestamp.

  • Computed Metrics with trips entity is now working as intended.

  • NULL lat long gave NULL grids which was plotted around north pole.

We improvised 2 highly used features on Locale this week -

Adding cluster percentage calculation

Now whenever you make clusters you can see the contribution of these clusters inside the metric in comparison to the original value of the metric.

Calendar UX Improvements

Our calendar was not very easy to use and it being one of the most important parts of the product we have improved the experience of using and navigating through it really intuitive now.

Featured image for 🏹 Feature Release: Clusters

With clusters, you can now monitor and take actions in your focus areas filtered on multiple metrics.

What are clusters?

Clusters are areas that share common qualities, patterns, or behavior that we want to analyze over a certain time period.

These areas can be

  • Problematic areas

  • Well-performing

  • Areas with important KPIs

  • Areas bringing in a lot of revenue or bookings

Creating clusters on Locale

How to create and save a cluster?

For example:
 To create a cluster comprising areas

  • High idle time and

  • Low bookings

  1. Select the idle time metric in the metric studio, filter to the areas with high idle time, and click the APPLY FILTERS button.

  2. Repeat the previous steps to apply the area filters for low bookings

  3. Click on SAVE CLUSTER.

Where can I see my clusters?

All the clusters are listed under the “Area Cluster” section on the homepage of Locale.

Featured image for 🚀 Locale Updates : Computed Metrics

💡Computed Metrics

With the computed metric feature, the users can perform mathematical operations on two or more existing metrics (also known as the base metrics) to derive compound metrics. These metrics are denoted by Σ in the metric section. The operations included are addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and so on.

Users can also create computed metrics using metrics of users, bikes, and so on, i.e. metrics across various entities. For example, if you want to find out revenue per bike, trips per bike, and so on.

For example: If you want to create a metric for churn, the user can use the computed metric option to subtract searches from the bookings.

i.e. Churn =bookings - searches
