Hi, it seems to be not appearing in my preview features. I am running the latest build: 2.114.864.0

I have decided to give this another go.  But still reverting back to the previous version.


I think the Options to Add to your Visual are the best part of this new feature.  The Add to your Visual button at the top of each visual is handy and a nice enhancement.


I really cannot approve of the new hidden panes on the Pane Switcher.  It is more cumbersome than the previous panes that were simple to collapse and expand with ease.  They were always available and we didnt have to waste time thinking about where they are.    This makes work so much more difficult by forcing users to go looking for and icon that represnts format/data/visuals panels and then we have to right click, then click again to  'open in a new pane' in order to get them to stay on screen.  It is very inefficent way to work, it was really so much better when we had the collapse chevrons that allows us to free up space on the screen when we need it.  I also feel that dragging and dropping a field from the data pane over to the appropriate axis was so easy. Now there are too many clicks to do the same thing.  I think it is making a really simple process over complicated and many users will not like it.  

I agree with you. The best thing would be to take advantage of some good ideas from this new feature to use in the pattern, such as minimizing the "Build Visual" in the "Visualizations" panel, being able to change the title directly in the visual, etc. But never discontinue the pattern for what we are testing.

Hello, this will be coming in the March release. The monthly blog will be out shortly, looking like tomorrow. Apologies for the confusion! Appreciate the enthusiasm to try the preview, looking forward to your feedback.
