Just In: Enhanced Look & Feel for Charts, New Import Option, Expandable Shelves and more

Posted by Posted on by

Zoho Reports brought in some new features in its latest update.

Enhanced Look & Feel of Charts
The default chart background color has been changed from grey to white, to give the chart a lighter look and feel. The fonts and styles of the charts have all been made more consistent. The tooltip now sports a new presentation style, and the tooltip border reflects the same background color as the corresponding bar/line/point.


New Import Option
Before this update, Zoho Reports supported 3 import options – 1) append new records to the end of a table, 2) delete all records and add all records afresh, and 3) add new records and update existing records. Now, there is a fourth option, which allows you to delete those records in Zoho Reports which aren’t there in the incoming import file. This option is most useful when relationships are defined between tables, and you want to delete specific records.


Expandable Shelves
Previously, the column shelves in the chart designer were of fixed height. If more than 2-3 columns were dropped, it was a bit difficult to scroll through and drop new columns. It’s become more intuitive now, as the shelf’s height grows, based on the number of columns dropped.


More Chart Types
New Area Chart types have been added.

  • Smooth Area
  • Smooth Area with Points
  • Stacked Smooth Area
  • Stacked Smooth Area with Points

Other Enhancements

  • Previously, when changes were made to a chart, the chart type reverted to default. But now, the chosen chart type gets retained.
  • When adding a numeric data column in the Graph tab, Add New Range option is available now (previously, the range was auto-calculated).
  • When you do some changes to a chart’s Settings, you can now preview those changes using the Preview link.
