In addition to continuous improvements, this update comes with a fresh look for the Queries section which you have been using extensively.
We had built Queries section to provide you with a convenient way to create Materialised Views over your data. With time, we have come to realize that creating materialized views is a part of a bigger exercise i.e. creating Data Models and is an important need for any data-driven business. This makeover of the Queries section is our first step towards providing you with a full-fledged Data Modeling solution and you can expect many more exciting things in the future.
Queries section is now called Models and here are the key features in Models Section which were released in this update:
- Quick Navigation - This section gives you a quick overview of all of your Models and in one glance you can get info about status, last run time, frequency etc.
- Model Preview - You can now see a preview of output tables populated by the Query in your Data Models. Head to Models, select the Model and you can find the preview of the output table in the Preview tab.
- Run Now - Every Model runs your query on a given schedule, this feature allows you to skip the waiting time and run the query immediately and populate the model.
