Live Connect for databases is now enhanced with the following options.
Live Connect support for more Cloud Databases
We have enabled Live Connect (Beta) option for the following cloud databases:
Live Connect Support for more Local Databases
We have enabled Live Connect option for the following local databases:
Caching Reports/Dashboards to load fast
You can now load reports and dashboards based on Live Connect tables from cache for a set duration. This reduces the time to load your reports and dashboards, by fetching data from the live database. The local cache will be refreshed after the set duration to keep the reports fresh.
Sync Meta Data for Individual Table
You can now synchronize the meta data changes for each table separately, instead of synchronizing all tables in the workspace. Use the Sync link in the Data Source setting of Live Connect workspace to do this.
All compatible data type changes will be automatically synchronized. In case the data types cannot be synced, it will show a column mismatch. You can resolve the mismatch as mentioned here.
Join Tables in Zoho Analytics
Zoho Analytics now allows you to define lookup relationships among the connected tables easily using the Lookup Column feature. Previously, Live Connect tables were joined only based on the relational data model defined in your database. This will help you perform cross-functional analytics across live connect tables from the same cloud database in Zoho Analytics.
Handy Delete Option
You can now delete views from a Live Connect workspace. You can also restore a deleted view from Trash, within 45 days of deletion.
You can now change the user role for multiple users together. With this feature, you can easily define the same role for multiple users in one go, without repeating the tedious process.
You can now remove the data source for an individual table too. Data Synchronization will be removed for the specified table alone. You can choose to synchronize data from other sources, or manually import data into this table as needed. For the rest of the tables, the same data source will continue to be in sync.
Oct 18, 2021
From now on, when you are importing data from another Zoho Analytics Workspace, the data types of the columns will be copied as is from the source table.
For example, when you import currency data, it could be be identified as Number or Positive Number based on the first few records. Now, in the following case the numeric columns will be identified as Currency based on the source table. `
Data Alert criteria can now be specified with both AND and OR conditions. This enables you to define more powerful criteria to track the key trend changes.
Tabular functions, also known as Window functions, are now supported in Query Tables. Tabular functions compute the result based on a set of rows than just a single row. These functions really enable you to do more poweful computations on your data set. Example of Tabular functions are RANK, ROW NUMBER, LEAD, etc.,
Custom Sort user interface has been revamped to enable users to easily arrange the values in the desired order using drag & drop or using arrow keys.

A set of cool new features has been added to our already smart Ask Zia. The enhanced AI assistant will now support:
- Ability to Understand Unstructured and Incomplete Queries: Ask Zia can now interpret grammatically unstructured queries appropriately. In the example below, although the query is not properly formed it will still be interpreted rightly as "show me sales by region in the previous year".
Typo Tolerance: Ask Zia is now typo tolerant. It can even understand misspelt words and interpret your questions right. The example below shows that misspelt words being handled appropriately and the question being rightly answered.
Ability to Interpret Accurate Function Type: Ask Zia can interpret the intent of your questions, derive the functions to be applied on your data, and generate the metric that you are asking for.
For example, the questions "Which region has the highest total sales" and "Which region has the highest number of sales" read very similar, but are subtly different. The first question should get the Region with the highest TotalSales (Sum function type). Whereas the second question should show the Region with the highest Sales Count (Count function type).
Comprehend Short Dates and Weekday/Weekend: You can now ask questions with short dates and weekend notations like "Sales for Apr, May, and Jun 2020" or "Show me the weekend sales for June 2020".
