New Schedule Drawer and Modal

We have shipped a refreshed design for our schedule modal for queries and dashboards. Now, when initially clicking the schedule button, instead of a screen covering modal, we show the list of schedules in a drawer that opens on the right side of the screen, similar to details, comments, and other UI elements. From that, we've then simplified the schedule modal to better utilize the same colors and design as the rest of the application. Finally, you can now give your schedules names to make it easier to differentiate between them.

Schedule Approval Workflow

We are currently rolling out to enterprise customers the ability to turn on a new schedule approval workflow. For organizations who have opted into this workflow, any new schedule that has been created by a user will need to be approved by an admin. Additionally, admins will be able to get a full holistic view of all schedules that have been created for their organization, as well as see the prior run results for those schedules. These views are available under "Preferences" under a new "Schedules" tab on the left sidebar.

Toggle X-Axis Sorting in Charts

We have rolled out a new feature on charts to allow end users to control how the X-Axis value will be sorted. Previously, we would always apply an ascending sort to the x-axis values in our charts. While we will still continue applying that sort by default, you can easily change it to descending or turning it off altogether by clicking the new icon to the right of the "X-Axis" header under chart settings.
