Dropbox and Google Drive hosting of CSV Files
Customers have been asking for a way to synchronize Megalytic reports with CSV files so that changes to files get automatically reflected in Megalytic reports. We now support using Dropbox (and other services) URLs in the CSV widget, so that any changes you make to a local copy of a CSV stored in Dropbox will automatically be propagated to the Megalytic report CSV widget.
A common use case is a call report, for example, that is a CSV file containing data about inbound phone calls. Now, rather than uploading a new version of this CSV to Megalytic each month, you can simply edit a local copy that is synchronized with Dropbox. Point a CSV widget to the Dropbox URL and your changes will automatically appear in the Megalytic report. Works with Google Drive as well.
Uploading Images Directly into Reports
Before this release, images were embedded in cover pages and notes widgets by providing URLs. Now, you can upload images directly into Megalytic reports. To implement this, we have upgraded the Megalytic Image Library to manage all the images uploaded to your reports, including logos and embedded graphics.
Improved Cover Pages
Before this release, if you wanted to upload full page image as your cover page, you needed to carefully size the image to fill the page and then upload it. Now, you can upload a full cover page image just like any other image as part of the standard cover page creation process.
