Hi there!

Everyone thinks building a customer-facing analytics dashboard is easy... until they start building it.

Needless to say, if you need to ship dashboards → check out Propel’s API-first approach to building customer-facing analytics.

What’s new?

🌎 Query-time zone support: Time zones may not matter as much for internal BI, as having everything in UTC or PT is good enough. However, when building customer-facing analytics for your SaaS and consumer apps, end-users must see their data aggregated in their specific time zone. Learn how to accomplish this with Propel without complicating your data pipelines. Read the blog post.

Check out the local-aware dashboard that Lumeo, a no-code video analytics platform, built on Propel using the new query-time timezone feature.

😍 Updates and deletes preview: Our Snowflake integration now synchronizes updates and deletes, not just inserts. With this preview, you can have a mirror of your Snowflake data in Propel to power your customer-facing use cases. Read the blog post.

🎿 Snowflake Dynamic Table support preview: Propel now supports Snowflake's Dynamic Tables, which enable you to transform your data for your customer-facing analytics easily. Read the blog post.

We had a packed month with platform improvements! Check out our changelog.
