There are some rumors that you may want to hear

Welcome to KoolReport's rumor channel. Today I will tell your some secrets about their products that you may not know.

KoolReport secret that you may not know

First: KoolReport Core 5.1.0 was released

The new version 5.1.0 was released with improvements such as better datasource functionality, PHP8 compatibility together with some minor bug fixes. It is actually not a rumor, I just took the information from their change log.

Second: Many packages got updated

I heard that together with new version of KoolReport Core, many packages got updated:

  1. Amazing 1.7.0: Fix browser console warning
  2. BarCode 2.1.0: Able to save barcode to file
  3. CloudExport 3.0.1: Able to looking for resource link within CSS file
  4. ChartTable 1.1.0: Remove the resource-dependency of ChartTable on other packages so that it can work alone
  5. ChartJs 2.5.1: Smoother plugins integration
  6. D3 1.6.0: Working better at client-side

  12. VisualQuery 2.0.0: A complete makeover from version 1.0

The above upgrades of the core and packages make the new KoolReport Pro 5.7.0. They maintain strong backward compatibility so we can feel free to upgrade to latest version.

Third: A new and more powerful Dashboard Framework 2.0.0

I also heard the Dashboard Framework has gone through a BIG surgery from version 1.0.0 to much more powerful v2.0.0 with more than 50 changes. Its best new features are:

  1. Extend datasource connection to SQLite and Oracle
  2. Improve debugMode to show unexpected error
  3. Adding Logging system that able to report issue via multiple channels
  4. Improve Metrics behaviors
  5. Integrate full text search into Dashboard table
  6. Bring new widgets on board: DrillDown, PivotTable, D3 and ChartJs
  7. Ability to call procedure from datasource
  8. Incorporate DetailView into widget and let user view data behind any charts
  9. Increase the flexibility in settings property with anonymous function
  10. Able to export dashboard or widgets to PDF

Beside, I heard the next version of Dashboard will have a big feature to help us manage our application's database. The name of it was not yet confirmed BUT it is promised to be the most flexible built-in CRUD+. Despite of all improvements took or will take place, someone told me that the price of Dashboard Framework will not change whatsoever. Can you believe it?

Alright, that's all for the rumors!

Have a great day and looking forward to seeing you in the next episode.

Why's so hassle to create KPI dashboard?

It should be fun and easy to build. In KooPHP inc, we always keep in mind one thing "Developer must be happy!" because only when happy, he can build the whole world.

It sounds a bit exaggerated but it is true that if we want to build something bigger, we need to free our mind from hassle and focus strongly on main things.

Building a dashboard is not an exception. While what we should focus on is the content of dashboard such as "how data is available and organized?" "what chart types should be used to maximize user's understanding of data?", those tedious tasks like creating user login form, building menus, authorization, CSS styling keep eroding our energy. Sadly, those tedious tasks are essential and we can not escape from.

Understanding the pain, we built a solution called Dashboard Framework. The framework handles for you all those hassle tasks and let you concentrate on what really matter. Some of its features are:

  1. Built-in authentication
  2. Allow authorization from application to data field
  3. Work with MySQL, Postgres, SQL Server, SQLite
  4. Support data from CSV, Excel files
  5. Support Data Caching at widget level
  6. Support multi-languages
  7. Support Multi-themes
  8. Beautiful single page application
  9. Support lazy loading for widgets
  10. Flexible three levels organized menus
  11. Work with other frameworks like Laravel, CodeIgniter, Yii2, Symfony

Phew! That's a lot of listings but those are not all. So you see, when you own a framework like this, why hassle can bother you from building great dashboard system for yourself or for your clients. Saving tons of time & efforts, keeping you focus on the importance, making you more productive, helping to serve more clients and bringing you more income eventually. If you feel our words unbelievable, let see its beauty and simplicity from the links below.
