Introduction

The Appit Preview Program is a user opt-in program that allows you to access and try the latest features that we are working on before they are made broadly available. This gives you early access to new features as we are building them, and most importantly, the ability to provide feedback before the features are launched!

Q: What features are available in Preview today?

A: Our first preview program is focused on Reports and consists of out-of-the-box Process Reports, Power BI and Tableau integration using SmartObject Services for OData, and Power BI templates.

  • Process Reports - K2 offers out-of-the-box Process Reports for real-time visibility and in-depth insights into your data and include:
    • Process Overview Reports - A rollup of all key process metrics
    • Process Details Reports - Rich insights into activity trends
    • User Overview - View of an individual's workload across all processes
    • Embedded Reports - Easily embed your data into SmartForm applications or SharePoint pages
  • Power BI and Tableau integration - K2 helps unlock both process and business data through K2 SmartObject Services for OData by integrating with the tools you love such as Power BI, Tableau, Excel and more.
  • Process Analytics templates for Microsoft Power BI - If you prefer working in Microsoft Power BI and would like to keep track of performance of your processes and activities, K2 process analytics templates for Power BI can get you started.  You can now drill down into rich process activities for better analysis, understand your teams workload and identify any bottlenecks or review usage trends from within Microsoft Power BI.
