Hello everyone,

Apologies for the long gap between emails. We’ve been super busy with huge COVID-driven increases in users and traffic. But we’ve also been building features faster than ever, so there’s lots to update you on.

COVID-19 charts
Thousands of you have served billions of coronavirus charts and maps since the crisis began. We also launched our own set of live COVID-19 visualizations, which you’re welcome to embed on your own site.

New Flourish help docs
We recently launched a rich archive of Flourish help docs. Best of all, you can access these directly from the editor: just hit the big blue help button at the bottom left and relevant docs will appear.

So many new features!
We’ve been adding features across all the built-in templates. A few recent highlights…

• Our powerful Scatter template is the first outing for our fancy new drag-and-drop annotation feature. We’ll talk more about this in another newsletter when we’ve rolled it out to more templates.

• The Line, Bar, Pie template has better label options, selective dashed lines and better axes which automatically set their own size.

Line bar pie template

• Our searchable tables are now lightning fast and support mini stacked bar charts with negative numbers.

Table template

• The Hierarchy template now has more sorting options and an inner radius seting for donut-style radial charts.

Hierarchy template

• The Survey template can now exclude small categories or group them under “Other”, which really improves results with many datasets.

Table template

• Our popular Projection Map template now offers editable SVGs for downloads while still using much faster canvas rendering for display online.

• Flourish image and video slides now offer a fixed aspect ratio mode, which is great for video stories.

Community templates
Did you know any developer can create new Flourish templates? Earlier this year we published a Q&A with Code for Africa about their experience creating the Bubble Network template.

New embed domain
If you’ve ever had to whitelist Flourish domains in your network or website, please also add flo.uri.sh, which is our new domain for published embedded content. We plan to migrate older projects to the new domain in due course. More on that next time.

We always love to hear your feedback and ideas so feel free to press reply!

Best wishes,
Duncan and the Flourish team
