Filters for Shopify widgets

We’ve shipped several improvements to the beta of our Shopify data source, adding powerful new ways to drill into your Shopify data:

  • Apply a whole new range of filters to your Shopify data, including billing city, discount code, order tag, order cancel reason and more.
  • Split data on your line and column charts by billing country, order tag, currency, and more.
  • Compare multiple metrics of the same type on one visualization; show fulfilled, unfilled and total orders on the same line chart, for example.

Compare up to 5 data series on column charts

You can now compare up to five series to column charts that are powered by a Spreadsheet or Custom Dataset (boosting the limit up from three series). You’ll also find it possible to add more series to visualizations that use our ‘split by’ feature, which includes Google Analytics, Zendesk and Intercom.

Comparison visualizations on Shopify widgets

We’ve released an update to the beta of our Shopify data source that now lets you show how your Shopify data has changed compared with a previous time period.

The beta of our new Shopify data source now lets you show how your Shopify data has changed over time. You’ll now find comparisons available on line charts and number widgets, that let you compare hourly, daily, weekly and monthly data, depending on how you’ve set your widget up.

Note: We limit the amount of historical data we import from Shopify, so comparisons can be applied only to timespans that cover the 31 days before you connected your Shopify account to Geckoboard onwards.

Number and line widgets for visualizing AppFigures Sales

We’ve rebuilt our AppFigures number and line widgets to make it possible to show data from Android and iOS apps on the same widget. We’ve also tidied up the time periods you can filter your metrics by, and the updated widgets also benefit from recent visual updates we’ve made across the board.

Switch widget orientation in a group

When grouping widgets, widgets within a group will position themselves based on the space available. Now we’re giving you more control over whether widgets stack vertically on top of each other, or horizontally side by-side.

The next time you’re building a dashboard, you can quickly and easily switch the orientation of widgets by hovering over the group, clicking the cog icon that appears in the top right of the group ⚙, and picking an option that works best for the dashboard you’re working on.

Shopify data source (beta)

We’ve released a beta version of our brand new Shopify data source. Re-written from the ground up, it makes it much easier to keep track of key performance metrics from your Shopify store (or several stores!). Here’s what’s new:

  • A simpler widget-building experience, making it easier to quickly spin up dashboards that contain important Shopify metrics
  • Support for a wide range of Shopify metrics, covering sales, orders, orders that have been cancelled, unfulfilled, fulfilled or that are pending, and average order value
  • Break these metrics down by billing location, channel, currency, discount code and more
  • Apply timespans covering up to 31 days, right down to the hour
  • Access metrics from multiple Shopify accounts
  • Apply goals and status indicators to your Shopify metrics to show how they’re changing over time
  • Visualize Shopify metrics using a range of visualisation types, including line charts, column charts, leaderboards, gauges and table visualizations

You can try the beta out by clicking ‘Add widget’ and selecting the beta in the list of data sources. We’d love your feedback!
