← Other release notes

May 2, 2022

Crunch web application

  • Fixed the following issues:
    • Certain messages were not sent to clients who have requested notification, specifically for dataset sharing.
    • Time plots using categorical dates with the date format YYYY-Www were not rendering properly.
    • Time plots would sometimes not save properly to the deck.
    • Scorecard creation would sometimes not work.
    • Vertical scrolling was not working properly for folders that have homepages defined for them.
  • Updated the Decipher variable format.
  • Made a fix to how categorical arrays are exported to Excel (.xlsx ) files: since exports only print tables for the first 150 subvariables, users are advised to split larger arrays into chunks.
  • Made improvements to the UI experience when exporting a tab book.
  • Removed the option to import a multitable from the multitable builder.
  • Updated the transformation for “multiple selections” operations to adapt to an earlier change in the handling of categorical arrays in order to reduce memory consumption.

API endpoints and API reference

  • Enforced API Keys. Crunch is no longer allowing a username and password to access the Crunch API.

SDKs (rCrunch, pyCrunch, and sCrunch)

  • Added information to sCrunch docs that describe support for using API keys.
  • Updated rCrunch to explain how authenticating with crunch via login() is no longer supported. See Crunch API Keys for more details on authenticating with API keys.
  • Added experimental rCrunch support for parquet exports in exportDataset().

Help desk and website improvements

  • Added new information to the Importing Decipher article, which describes how to obtain prerequisite credential information to load data from Decipher into Crunch.
  • Created a new article for the new Script Builder, which describes how to use a customized Google Sheet that consolidates all of the key metadata from a dataset into one place. It acts as both a metadata reference and a tool for automatically generating Crunch Automation.
