New Features

Support for Search, Filter Groups and Amazon S3 Analytics Connector

Starting today, you can search for your data sets, analyses and dashboards in QuickSight using the unified search box, making it faster and easier for find and access your data. Additionally, we are introducing Filter Groups. You can now create a filter group in QuickSight with multiple filter conditions that are evaluated together using the OR operation. Across filter groups, the AND operation is applied. This provides you with more flexibility to apply advanced filtering criteria to your data. Finally, we releasing the Amazon S3 Analytics Connector in QuickSight. Amazon S3 customers can now create data sets and analyses of their S3 Analytics data that spans across multiple S3 buckets and configs. This allows you to analyze and optimize your S3 usage using a single comprehensive QuickSight dashboard. 

Create Analyses from Dashboards and Import Custom Date Formats

Amazon QuickSight users can now create analyses from dashboards within their account. This allows users to quickly create customized views of dashboard content by modifying existing visuals or adding new visuals. New users may utilize this capability to get started quickly by creating QuickSight analyses from dashboards shared with them. For data administrators, this capability reduces requests for customizations of dashboards and enables faster onboarding of users to QuickSight. 

Amazon QuickSight now also allows users to import non-standard date/time data into QuickSight as date fields and modify default QuickSight-detected date formats. 

These features are now available in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore and Sydney).
