Recently we published a post about the Chart Perspective and today, we are pleased to announce the Calendar Perspective!
If your collection contains attributes with date and time, you can view them in a calendar. Don’t worry about the format – Lumeer recognizes lots of formats and doesn’t mind if the value is “01/04/2019” or “April 1, 2019 6pm” (in case your favourite date format is not supported, please let us know and we will make it work).
After switching the perspective, choose attributes that contain your event name and start date. You can also choose an attribute with an end date but this is optional as some types of data (e.g. orders) contain only one date.
Now that there are events displayed in the calendar, you can see their names by hovering over the dots:
And after clicking on the dot, you can see all details of the event and update it:
You can of course add a new event to the calendar without going back to the table or post-it perspective. Double-click on a date and a window for creating a new event appears:
When you return to the Post-it Perspective, the new event is there:
In the top-right corner, there are controls for switching between monthly, weekly and daily view:

Your data are not only tables, and neither is Lumeer!
Sometimes you need to change the perspective, the point of view if you will, and see your data in a chart rather than just a table for instance. Actually, lots of people coming from spreadsheets background had told us so. We are dedicated to creating the features you need, and this is why we present you with charts! Now you can find Chart among other perspectives in the perspective dropdown:
There are currently three types of charts you can choose from: line, bar and pie, and you can easily switch between them and select attributes for axes:
You might be used to changing data in your Excel table and then looking at chart next to it to see how it changes. Each of the perspectives in Lumeer can not only display but also change your data. Chart is not an exception – just drag the bars and the data will be automatically updated:
And don’t forget about the exports to .png files and other features you can find in the upper right corner:
