More sources to connect to
The more the merrier! We have added a bunch of additional data sources that you can connect to. Here’s what we’ve added:
You can now connect Appsflyer as a source on Hevo. Enjoy the complete visibility on your mobile app attribution and tracking data!
Your favorite Google Analytics is a legit source now. Move the data from GA to your data warehouse to feel the power!
Facebook Ads and Google Adwords
We have included Facebook Ads and Google Adwords in the source list. You will now be able to combine your ad data with other user data to dig into deeper insights.
We have added an additional data warehouse to Hevo. We are excited to tell you that in addition to the existing ones, you can now load data into BigQuery, Google's serverless, highly scalable, low-cost enterprise data warehouse. Not just that, you create data models and materialized views on your data in BigQuery. #MorePowerToYou.
More to Models
In the last update, we introduced a handful of interesting features in Models. We have been sinking our teeth into this ever since, and here are a few more updates that we have worked hard on.
We are thrilled to introduce a new flow for models that make it easy for you to navigate through the module. The flow takes you through step-by-step model creation, thereby enabling you to focus on the right things.
Creating models without understanding the schema is hard. To ease things for you, we have added a schema browser on your dashboard. This gives you the flexibility to view the schema and build the models side-by-side, all in one place.
We have introduced a ‘Run Query’ option in Models. This feature allows you to get a quick real-time snapshot of the results your query would return. You can experiment with the query, perfect it, and then commit!
Changes to your data models will be auto-saved as drafts and will be available to you when you come back for deploying your changes. That way, you don’t have to worry about losing the complex models you’ve written.
Behold, the Activity Log!
Taking a step towards improving your visibility over pipelines and models, we have added this powerful feature. Hevo’s ‘Activity Log’ provides a one-stop view to watch all the activity that occurs within pipelines and models. From failure at any stage in your pipeline to successful executions, all of it is recorded here. What else? You can also use various inbuilt filters to create custom views of the log.
In addition to the above elements, we have also changed a handful of visual elements, colors, and icons to bring about a consistent look to the product. While we are constantly working towards improving your experience, we believe that this update will help you relate and locate functions easily.
