Introducing FNA Platform update 21.
We’ve been busy behind the scenes making improvements to the FNA platform, now available in version 21.7.
So, what’s new?
Here’s a short overview of some of the new updates. If you’d like any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch or contact your account manager.
Saving Dashboard State:
The Saving Dashboard State is now available for data filters and the following widgets: Network, Scatterplot, Column/Bar/Line Chart, Histogram, Sorted List, Trends, Data, Time Series, and Time bar. The platform automatically saves changes in “Editing” mode, however, any changes made in the default “Viewing” mode won’t be saved.
Command Line Widget:
The Command Line widget is a new feature that allows users to run scripts from the dashboard. It is important to enable dashboard autoupdate configuration to see any changes in the dashboard.
The latest release includes four new network layouts.
- Circular: Creates layout for networks with vertices placed on a circle
- Column: Calculates coordinates for networks placing vertices in columns defined by a vertex property
- Radial Tree: Calculates coordinates for a radial tree layout, allowing the definition of link length using an arc property
- Circular Tree: Calculates coordinates for visualising a tree with a circle-like shape
It is important to remember that if a user selects a radial or circular radial tree layout, but a network is not a forest, the platform uses a force-directed layout by default.
Sharing Workspace improvements
There are few updates on sharing workspaces. The first one allows users to manage permissions for editing or viewing mode only. Another feature allows the users to assign a new owner to their workspace and remove themselves from that shared workspace. Last but not least, users are able to re-share workspaces if they were granted with editor rights and customize sharing preferences.
The trophic analysis algorithm was also included into this release and it aims to investigate the overall flow direction of the network. Trophic levels are assigned to each node in the network representing their position in the flow structure computing the levels for vertice. Trophic incoherence is a network measure capturing the loopfulness of the network computing the trophic incoherence for the network/components. More directed cycles in the network, the higher the value of trophic incoherence.
More details on the appliance of trophic analysis to directed networks on the FNA platform can be found in the following video.
