Numeric AggregateNumeric Aggregate

Benefits & Features:
• Summarizes values in Currency, Number and Percentages fields
• Toggle the feature on/off summary section for a layer
• No data set configuration needed

Geopointe focuses on providing three main features to our users: Analysis, Action and Automation. Our improvements to how Geopointe summarizes values greatly improves our ability to help our customers with the analysis of their data.

With this new release users will be able to summarize values in Currency, Number and Percentage files on the Layer Manager as well as in the shape info window. Any Data Set fields of the Currency, Number or Percentage data types will be summarized.

There is no data set configuration needed, however, the Layer Manager has a new icon allowing the user to toggle that summary section for the layer on and off. While Number and Currency fields will default to being summed, Percentage fields will default to be averaged.

High-Performance Assignment PlansHigh Performance Assignment Plans

Benefits & Features:
• Process large quantities of records faster
• Admins can enable High-Performance Assignment Plans

Prior to this release, Geopointe’ Assignment Plans were extremely powerful, but now they’re turbo-charged. We understand that some of our customers are processing millions of records across thousands of shapes and need to process new data in near real-time, and that is why we are introducing High-Performance Assignment Plans.

To enable the High-Performance option your admin can simply do so from the Geopointe Setup page. We understand the importance of securing Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and, therefore, will never send any PII data. Once the feature is enabled, any specific Assignment Plan can be set to utilize the High-Performance option, the end result doesn’t change but the run time will be fast.

*Until the Production Push on 11/3/2018, High-Performance Assignment Plans are not enabled by default. You can contact our support team to ask for it to be turned on for you. Once the Production Push is complete, we will enable it for all customers.
