Crunch web application

  • Updated the Manage Users panel in Crunch, including a cleaner layout, displaying the dates the user was added and last authenticated, and adding the ability to configure users as clients or organization users.
  • Made significant enhancements to the Bar Plots in Crunch, including a cleaner layout, more readable text, and a new confidence interval display. See the help article for more information.
  • Changed the label for the ‘Edit value’ button to “Edit KPI value”.
    • In cases where the user had already established a KPI + comparison value in an earlier session, the Properties panel then reflects the comparison cell selection.
  • Improved the assignment of the maximum range in the value axis when exporting a PowerPoint stacked bar graph.
  • Enabled data streaming for numeric arrays.
  • Disallowed the ability to create a view with personal variables.
  • Fixed the following:
    • A table layout would sometimes render with extraneous line wrapping when selecting the “Empty rows/columns” option in the display controller.
    • Editing a tile for a time plot was not correctly persisting customizations to the Min and Max ranges or hiding the Title and Subtitle.
    • Tables with many rows would sometimes only display a few. Now, all the rows are displayed (unless hidden).

SDKs (rCrunch, pyCrunch, and sCrunch)

  • Updated scrunch to version version 0.16.0. See the official page for more information.

Crunch Automation

  • Changed how variables are referred to in array. See the help article for more information.


  • Variable folders specified when creating a dataset from metadata now allow periods, commas, and dollar signs (., ,, $). Previously, these were replaced with URL-safe strings.
