Displayr’s Product Roadmap (Revised 3 November 2017)

This blog post is updated semi-regularly. It was last updated on the 3rd of November 2017.

Recap: the last few months

  • We left beta about a month ago. You can now pay to use Displayr!
  • You can now create really cool dashboards. Checkout this post for links to different examples.


Our number one priority for the next six months is usability. Displayr will become a lot more intuitive. Intuitive for you to figure out. Intuitive by figuring you out.

New visualizations

Over the next month or so you will see:

  • Bean plots
  • Violin plots
  • Density plots
  • Histograms
  • Waterfalls
  • Streamgraphs
  • Packed circle bubble charts
  • Venn diagrams

Insert > Shapes

The ability to insert and format standard PowerPoint-like shapes (boxes, lines, stars, etc.). These export to PowerPoint as PowerPoint shapes.

Advanced analytics

Our second big push for the next six months is in advanced analytics:

  • Long-running calculations for more complex analyses (up to 48 hours).
  • Run multiple long-running calculations at to the same time (no need to wait for results)
  • Hierarchical Bayes for MaxDiff
  • Hierarchical Bayes for Choice Modeling
  • Experimental designs for choice modeling

Integrating charting and visualizations

Currently, charting and visualization work a bit differently. We will be integrating them and, at the same time, making them more flexible in terms of the data that they support.


A search tool to search through your data, your reports, and our menus and documentation.

Longer term

In the longer term, our focus will be more on speed and larger data sets.
