Say Hello to JavaScript Charts

Posted in Features, Updates | Comments Comments

JavaScript charts are here, they look great, and they work on your iPad!

Scout’s basic chart functionality has remained the same, with a few enhancements:

  1. Most importantly, the charts no longer require Flash. This means you can view the charts on your iPad or modern Flash-free browser.
  2. 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.
  3. The charts feel snappier!

JavaScript charts have been a popular request on the Scout Uservoice page, and we’re pleased to release them. As always, any feedback, let us know.

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.
