Scout’s basic chart functionality has remained the same, with a few enhancements:
- Most importantly, the charts no longer require Flash. This means you can view the charts on your iPad or modern Flash-free browser.
- Charts now show values in a tooltip as you mouse over them (the image above shows an example). This solves a long-standing problem with the old charts, where the legend became unreadable with many metrics.
- The charts feel snappier!
A Note on dashboards with the new tooltip: in some cases the tooltip can overflow from the smallest charts on dashboards. If you encounter this issue, just enlarge your dashboard chart a bit to make room for the tooltip.
