Amazon QuickSight now allows you to create Top N and Bottom N filters to see the highest or lowest performers on a given metric. This feature allows dashboard authors to create charts, tables, and other visualizations that will dynamically show only the top or bottom N members of a dimension regardless of how many members there are or how frequently they may change. The Top N and Bottom N options can be used with text, date, and numeric filters. See here to learn more.

QuickSight now also allows you to configure on-screen parameter controls to only display relevant options based on choices made by the user. The user’s selections on a parameter control cascades to filter out irrelevant options in subsequent linked controls, providing an intuitive and guided experience for the end user.

Lastly, you can now parse JSON objects while reading data into QuickSight. JSON parsing allows you to create columns in a data set with values derived from key value pairs within the JSON object. See here to learn more.

These features are now available in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo).
