The first new feature I’d like to talk about in ActiveAnalysis is a rather simple one to understand. Automatic Encoding uses a set of rules to determine the best encoding type to use to analyze your data based on the way attributes and measures are arranged on the shelves.
Looking at Date based data on the column shelf and place a measure on the row shelf? We’ll automatically use the line encoding. Not using dates in a similar situation? We’ll use the bar encoding.
This feature makes it easy for users to concentrate on the data they are looking for answers about and not worry about changing the encoding settings to match the new layout.
