Zebra BI Cards 1.3 release: uniform layouts and background color
This release, it's all about different report design options. As you may know, the Zebra BI Cards visual enables you to resize any of the cards as you wish to make them as user-friendly and flexible as possible. However, in some cases the free layout might not be the best option, so you can now explore the uniform layout as well. It enables you to prepare reports where all the cards are the same size and you can simply make them larger or smaller!
Different color options in the Zebra BI Cards visual are another neat feature that you can explore from the 1.3 release onwards and it has been particularly highly anticipated by our users. You can now define a global and individual card background color and also set global border colors! The reports and dashboards with Zebra BI Cards visuals can now exactly match your company design and branding, and you can also create reports with the visual in dark-themed reports.
Flexibility in report design is crucial for adopting the visual as it helps you meet your company's needs and create a great tool for efficient storytelling through your reports and dashboards.
Friendly tip: in order to still make the most out of your reports, make sure that the same colors should always mean the same thing. Less is more. 🤓

Zebra BI Charts 6.0: improved legend UX and 2-dimensional small multiples
Hold your breath. You see it correctly, the Zebra BI Charts is jumping straight to version release 6.0* to match the exciting new features in this release and the ones that are coming up in the next months.
From the Zebra BI Charts 5.4 release onwards, you already had a chance to enjoy some improved features related to the legend UX. However, this update is bringing even more improvements to this area. You can now rename the legend entry directly on the visual which makes it much easier for you to manage your charts.
Stay tuned as we're already working on further new features to make your reports even better.
What's better than small multiples?
The only thing better than small multiples is 2-dimensional small multiples. And they are making a comeback! This is one of the most distinguishing Zebra BI features that enables you to compare multiple categories of data. Using small multiples allows you to immediately see which categories are the most important and also analyze the trends.
The best part? They are fully scaled which gives you the correct insights into your data.
Create even more user-friendly reports with Zebra BI Charts visual and take advantage of comparing multiple categories to see which one is the most important and where you should focus your attention.
