Select top categories in plot and use your custom color

Dear Graphext Users,

We've Got Some Great New Features for You!

  • 🌈 Customizable Plot Colors:
  • 📊 Focus on What Matters - Top/Bottom N Categories:

🌈 Customizable Plot Colors:

Now, you can add a personal touch to your plots by choosing any color you like. This is perfect for aligning your visualizations with your company's branding or simply picking a color that fits the mood of your presentation. It's a small change, but we believe it can make a big difference in how your data is perceived and understood.


📊 Focus on What Matters - Top/Bottom N Categories:

We understand that sometimes less is more. That's why we're introducing the ability to show just the top or bottom N categories in your plots. This feature will help you create cleaner, more focused visualizations, making it easier for your audience to get the key takeaways without getting lost in the details.


We can't wait to see the amazing visualizations you'll create with these new tools. As always, we're here to listen to your feedback and make Graphext even better for you.

Cheers,
The Graphext Team 💙

Streamlined Category Renaming and Merging

Dear Graphext Users,

What’s New?

Enhanced Category Renaming and Merging:

  • Direct Renaming: You can now rename categories directly within our interface. This straightforward functionality allows for quick adjustments to your dataset, ensuring that your categories accurately reflect your data.
  • Efficient Merging: When you name two categories the same, Graphext will automatically combine them into one. This is particularly useful for cleaning up datasets where the same item might be listed under different names, like various job titles (Product Manager, PM, Product Mgmt, etc…)  that essentially mean "Product Manager."


Coming soon! The Future is ✨AI-Powered:

We're not stopping here! Get ready for an upcoming feature where our AI will suggest merging similar concepts. Imagine the AI detecting and suggesting merging "Advisor" and "Adviser" or "E-mail" and "Email," helping you to further clean and organize your data efficiently.


Seamless Integration:

These new category management tools are designed to fit smoothly into your existing Graphext workflow. Renaming and merging are straightforward, quick, and won’t interrupt your data analysis.

We hope these updates make your data work more efficient and straightforward. Your feedback is always welcome as we continue to improve Graphext.

Interactive plots resizing

Dear Graphext users,

Say hi to interactive plot resizing! At Graphext, we understand that the impact of a good visualization is not just in the data it represents, but also in how it's presented. Recognizing that different visualizations require different aspect ratios for optimal clarity and impact, we've now made it possible for you to adjust the size of your plots interactively.

What's New?

  • Interactive Resizing: You can now click and drag the edge of your plots to resize them. This means you can easily switch between landscape and portrait orientations or fine-tune the dimensions to get just the right ratio for your data visualization needs.
  • Adaptable Visuals: Whether your data looks best in a wide, landscape format or a tall, vertical orientation, you have complete control over how your plots are displayed. This flexibility ensures that you can present your data in the most effective and visually appealing way.

Why This Matters:

We've all been there – tweaking numbers, trying to get the visualization size just right, only to end up with a format that doesn't quite do the data justice. It can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. That's why we prioritized developing a solution that not only saves time but also enhances your ability to present data in the best light possible.

Seamless Exporting:

Once you've configured the perfect size for your plot, exporting it is just as straightforward. This seamless transition from customization to export means your workflow is smoother and faster, allowing you to share your insights with others more efficiently.

Fast multiple segments selection

Dear Graphext users,

This week at Graphext, we're introducing a series of keyboard shortcuts designed to make your filtering process in the cross filters significantly more efficient. We understand that working with data often involves dealing with variables that have a wide range of categories, and selecting or deselecting these manually can be time-consuming. That's why we've implemented these shortcuts to streamline your workflow.

What's New?

  • Selecting a Range of Categories: Now, you can easily select all categories between two points with just a couple of clicks. Click on the first category, then click on the last category while holding down the SHIFT key. This will select both categories and everything in between.
  • Adding or Removing Categories: To add or remove a single category from your selection, simply hold down the CMD key (on Mac) or the CTRL key (on Windows) while clicking the category. This feature is particularly handy when you want to maintain most categories but exclude just a few, especially with variables that have a high number of categories.

Why This Matters:

These enhancements are all about saving you time and making your data analysis workflow smoother. By allowing for quicker selection and deselection of categories, we hope to significantly reduce the time you spend on manual tasks, freeing you up to focus on the more critical aspects of your analysis.

Correlations 2.0

Dear Graphext users, 

We're rolling out an update to the correlations section, now called Correlations 2.0, for all our Graphext users. Here's a quick refresher on what the correlations section does: It's a handy tool within Graphext that lets you pick a variable you're interested in, and then it shows you how that variable correlates with others in your dataset, sorting the results by the highest correlation. This feature is pretty neat because it works with all kinds of variables, including categorical ones, thanks to the mutual information algorithm we use.

What's New in Version 2.0?

  • Pearson Coefficient: We've added the Pearson coefficient to our toolbox, so now you have another way to measure how variables relate to each other, especially useful for linear relationships between continuous variables.
  • More Ways to Visualize Data: Besides the bubble charts we had before, you can now use boxplots and heatmaps for a different look at the correlations in your data. These should give you more insights and make the correlations easier to understand at a glance.

Why We Made These Changes:

We wanted to give you more options and better tools to see and understand the relationships in your data. The Pearson coefficient is a classic statistical tool for a reason, and we think it's a great complement to the mutual information algorithm. As for the new visualizations, we know that a good chart can sometimes tell you more at a glance than a bunch of numbers, so we're excited to offer you more choices there.

Try It Out:

The updated correlations section is ready for you to explore. Check out the new features and see how they can help with your data analysis. We're here for any questions or feedback you might have.

Introducing the Write-Back! Export the output of your models to any data source

Hello Graphext Users,

As promised in our last update, we are excited to roll out our new product release including the much-anticipated Write-Back functionality. Coupled with a sleek new interface, this feature aims to take ease-of-use a notch higher for all our esteemed users.

Demonstrated in the attached video, you now have the convenience to export the entirety or selected parts of your dataset to a destination of your choice, be it BigQuery, Snowflake, AWS S3, or a host of other platforms.


The Write-Back functionality, sewn together with our latest Recurrence feature, paves the way for a multidimensional user case scenario. What does this mean for you? With Graphext, you are now equipped to train a predictive model, leverage it to interpret new data, channel the output of this model back to the data source you prefer and set up a Daily Recurrence Schedule.

Effectively, this gives you the ability to oversee end-to-end processes not just in a more streamlined manner, but on an automated, recurring basis.

Stay tuned for more updates. Your feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

With love, the Graphext team 💙
