We’ve recently updated our block headers for a more simplified look. This article is designed to outline all the new behaviors. Introducing the Formula icon for hiding the formula bar! There is now an formula icon that can be used to hide and show the formula bar. Members can click the new formula icon to expand and collapse the formula bar. Also when using the drilldown options, Members can click on “Show/Hide formula breakdown” to expand and collapse the formula bar.We optimised the experience for each type of user. If the Member is considered a “modeller” (either have the ‘Can Configure Block’ or the ‘Can Open Block Explorer’) then the formula and the formula breakdown will be displayed by default. All remaining Members will be considered as “contributors” and the formula and formula breakdown won’t be displayed by default. All users have the ability to show/hide formulas.

FP&A Week: Breaking the Paradox Join us as we dive into the hard-learned lessons from top finance voices at companies like Warner Bros, Datadog, Snowflake, ClickUp, Deloitte and many others. The past years of market twists have positioned finance teams to face tough - sometimes paradoxical - questions: 🤔 How can you balance short-term targets with long-term priorities?🤔 What actionable steps have other finance teams taken to drive growth?🤔 How can you shift from number-crunching to being a strategic advisor to the business? These questions and many more will be answered at FP&A Week - ranging from building world–class teams, to fostering collaboration, and of course, AI. See the full agenda and save your virtual seat here!

Hello friends, On Friday April 14th, we will be making some changes to the Autosave functionality and the default Autosave behavior when inputting data in Sheet View. What is the “Autosave off” feature that will be released on April 14th? Now Members with Configure Blocks permission will have a block-level setting controlling Autosave. This setting is now available on all block types and determines if inputs within the block are automatically saved or not. While already existing, the Autosave functionality was changed to expand its functionality to Boards for all types of display modes and not only Sheet view, making it more accessible to Members inputting data on Boards. This change also enables the autosave setting to be consistent across users and views. How does this impact Sheet view? On April 14th, Sheet view’s default behavior will change from Autosave being off to Autosave being turned on. This means Members will no longer have to save inputs before they sync with the rest of

Pigment NPS Survey: How we measure your satisfaction and how we make sure that your feedback helps us improve the product
You have probably heard about NPS, a survey that allows a company to measure its customers’ satisfaction. At Pigment, we care a lot about your feedback & we use the NPS survey to have more insights about your experience with the product & the company. How do we measure the NPS? At Pigment, we send out your first NPS survey one month after your account creation, and then every 6 months after that. You will receive it via email or directly in Pigment and it will look like this: You will be invited to provide a score from 1 to 10 and, as a follow-up, you will receive an optional question to give more details about your score. Any constructive feedback is welcome and represents an invaluable source of information to make Pigment even better!This optional survey is of great help to us!! If you prefer to opt out, simply ignore. It will disappear after several reminders. What happens after you give your feedback?Once you’ve shared your feedback, your CSM will be notified and will ha
