Crunch web application

  • Added the ability for organizations to route user questions and problems directly to personnel or online resources (blogs, knowledge base, help center, videos, etc) for any folder via the “Report an Issue” menu option. For example, you may want to configure a top-level regional folder to route user issues to your own, branded and configure a lower-level folder to route user questions to a specific email address like See the help article for more information.
  • Added support that tracks how users are interacting with datasets: upon request, Crunch will send clickstream data to each organization’s Google Analytics reports. See the help article for more information.
  • Made the following improvements to the variable organizer when accessed by selecting “Edit Variables” from dataset properties:
    • Dragging and dropping are smoother, and a dropzone now appears with a dashed border where the dragged variables are moved, making it easier to see.
    • When clicking or dragging to “Move…” a ‘Move to…’ dialog appears, which allows you to more easily navigate your folder hierarchy and even create new folders as part of the moving process.
  • Improved how “Export this table” performs so that it correctly exports the displayed measure and decimal place setting in multitable view.
  • Improved how the “Above table” and “Below table” bases options are properly reflected in the tab book export for crosstabs.

  • Added the MINUS modifier info to the DISPLAY command. See the help article for more information and examples.
  • Made speed improvements when working with large scripts or datasets in the CHANGE, CREATE MULTIPLE SELECTION, and ORGANIZE commands.
