Amazon QuickSight now allows users to create analyses from dashboards and import custom date formats

Posted on: Sep 26, 2017

Amazon QuickSight users can now create analyses from dashboards within their account. This allows users to quickly create customized views of dashboard content by modifying existing visuals or adding new visuals. New users may utilize this capability to get started quickly by creating QuickSight analyses from dashboards shared with them. For data administrators, this capability reduces requests for customizations of dashboards and enables faster onboarding of users to QuickSight. 

Amazon QuickSight now also allows users to import non-standard date/time data into QuickSight as date fields and modify default QuickSight-detected date formats. 

These features are now available in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore and Sydney). To learn more, see the latest Big Data blog post on QuickSight.
