Here’s a round-up of this month’s highlights:
Merge Components and References
Ensure good data quality and quickly tidy up your mainline or scenario by merging duplicate components of the same type or references with the same source and target. 🚀
Select the properties, field values, and style of the components or references you wish to combine, right-click and select "Merge”.

A Cleaner Reporting Page
We just moved the configuration of calculated fields and graph filters away from the Reporting page. 🧹 This allows for a more intuitive interface and most importantly, it marks the start of a series of improvements coming to the Analytics module.
Here’s where you can find calculated fields and graph filters:
Calculated fields. Go to Preferences > Organization settings > Manage fields. Click on the ‘Edit calculation’ button to view or modify the calculation.
Graph filters. Go to Preferences > Organization Settings > Graph filters.
Remove the Risk of Your Broadcasts Being Misclassified as Spam or Malicious
Whenever you broadcast a survey or a message, Ardoq sends an email to your audience from a <email@example.com> email address that you can customize when composing your message, as shown in the image below:
The reply address is set by default to the same user that last created or edited the broadcast, so that you or your team can continue the conversation or answer any questions from your audience easily.
However, some email clients classify an email as malicious or spam when the From and Reply email address is not identical. Your broadcast then risks not reaching your audience. We wanted to help you avoid this. With this update, you can now opt-out of using your email as the default reply address and choose the <firstname.lastname@example.org> option instead when composing your broadcast message.
Better Data Quality With New Resources Available In Azure AD
You can now filter by employee type and employee ID when importing people data into Ardoq from Azure AD. This improves the accuracy of your employee data by filtering out any unwanted non-user or service accounts from your import. Hooray! 🎉
Heroes Get Remembered, but Legends Never Die
When you think of improvements to legends in our views, words that might cross your mind are not typically associated with excitement. Yet, when applied properly, they can instantly clarify a lot for your audience. By using a legend, you can quickly set the scene, provide context, and highlight details in a very small space.
All our views are benefiting from the improvements, but perhaps our favorite is in our Dependency Map view. For this view, the legend icons resemble the visuals in the view, providing context-awareness for your audience, covering all the visual indicators.
Improvements to all legend views include:
New styles with enhanced fonts to make the text as clear as possible for your audience.
Margins have changed to improve the visibility of your data.
Scrolling will automatically be available but only if necessary.
It simply looks nicer and will help with your storytelling. We hope you agree ✌
