Adaptive Insights 20202 Release 1 is now live!

2020R1 highlights include:

  • Improved interactive dashboards for better collaboration

    • Bring your sheets, visualizations and text all on one dashboard
    • Make changes to the sheets and immediately see the impact of those changes on the dashboards
    • Sharing a perspective is easier now that you can share with groups
  •  Enhanced secured access to company-wide modeling

    • Control access to individual accounts on modeled sheets to enable more users to participate in the planning process
      • For example, a modeled sheet with salary as a column can be accessed by only a subset of users while the same sheet can be made available to all users
  • Enriched process tracker for faster task completion
    • Create and assign a task to an existing user group and, depending on the condition of the task, an individual or the group can complete the task
    • Get greater flexibility and process navigation by linking tasks to specific dashboards for seamless access to dashboards for specific task completion
  • Simplified, cleaner user interface for a sleeker look

    • Admins can now change the display setting to increase the contrast of all sheets, so grid line and colors appear darker for an easier display on a projector
    • More updates to our interface as we continue our journey toward a consistent look & feel across Workday 
  • Advanced integration framework

    • Update specific columns on rows of modeled sheet via manual data import, API & integration to better automate the maintenance of modeled sheets
    • Use dimensions or levels as a key to identify and update select rows
