Original ask for Anomaly detection on/off:

It's fantastic to have gotten anomaly detection in Workspace in today's release. One point of feedback however would be that the function should be off by default when adding a new metric, with an option to turn it on.

The reason we believe this is, workspace is used by a variety of end users throughout our organization (from technical to non-technical). For some of the non-technical users seeing an exclamation mark or anomaly has the potential to cause confusion and spurious concern. We therefore believe that having the default as off, would allow the anomaly detection to be more appropriately managed and used within our organization.

Thanks in advance,

Rory

Hi Brandon,

Thanks for the update, the ability to change the default preferences would be fantastic.

Also, while performance has gotten much better, I feel that while the data returns for the report, I always found the interface laggy when I had the "searching for anomalies" message. It's a lot better since I got a newer faster machine, but my old machine I really noticed the issue. So it's more about the report / interface performance (slowness trying to scroll the reports, perform additional actions, etc), rather than waiting for the primary report data; especially on larger reports.

Thank you for this context - very helpful.  We certainly do still have places in Workspace that need interaction performance improvements, but to be honest I haven't experienced them in that use case that you specify.  However, if you are seeing them there, then we need to investigate further.  The other good news is within the next few months, we are going to be rolling out some major performance enhancements to the line/area chart, which I believe should help the issues you're seeing (I'll be curious to hear if they do).  Thanks!

Hoping everyone is doing well! Is there any update on this work? It would be great to be able to set a default Report Suite. Thanks!
