Hi everyone,

It’s been a busy few months here at Flourish, so we’ve got all kinds of things to catch you up on!

Introducing bubble charts
We’re often asked for simple yet effective ways to visualize groups of people, objects or events. Enter the “Bubble chart” template. With the flexibility of sizing by values, coloring by categories, adding images and labels, and even plotting on an axis, this template is worth trying out.

New feature: Search the settings panel
In the visualization editor, there’s now a search feature at the bottom of the settings panel to help you find the settings you’re looking for. Additionally, only one settings block will open at a time for easier navigation between customization options.
