We are excited to announce our new downtime feature for automations! This powerful new feature allows you to optimize your automation scheduling, ensuring that your automations run only when needed, thus improving efficiency and reducing unnecessary resource usage.
The downtime feature enables you to define specific periods during which your automations will be paused. Within the automation panel, you can set time-based triggers to determine when an automation runs, and then add a downtime for each trigger. For instance, you can set a downtime for every Monday or specify a time range during which the automation should not run.
Please note that the ability to set a downtime may vary depending on the frequency interval of your automation.
By incorporating downtime into your automation scheduling, you can prevent automations from running during periods of inactivity or overlapping with other tasks. This not only helps you manage your resources more effectively but also ensures that your automations are executed at the most opportune times, maximizing their effectiveness and minimizing any potential disruptions.
Watch our full tutorial video below to learn more about downtime for automations.
Data Warehouses are a new feature that allows Toric users to deploy a Toric-managed data warehouse. Toric warehouses enable users to control the region for deployment and backup region including US, APAC and EMEA regions [additional regions coming soon].
With Data Warehouses, users can create tables with custom schemas supporting Primary Keys, Dates, Currencies, Numbers Units of measure, Lists, Boolean even BIM models. Like data-tables, Warehouses can be read/write from flows using the Write to warehouse, Select, Distinct and Summarize nodes.
Toric also supports external data warehouses that can be connected to the platform. The same functionality applies however Toric cannot create tables in external warehouses, and the types of data that can be written are limited to that warehouse technology.
Toric's data tables are a powerful feature designed to help users better aggregate and manage their data. Data tables provide a structured way to consolidate information from various sources into a single, organized table. They enable users to have full control over the table's structure, including the ability to define column types, designate primary keys, and set required columns.
Data tables in Toric work by allowing users to create custom tables, define their schema, and map data to columns from different sources. Users can also perform read and write operations on these tables, which can be especially useful when working with multiple projects or versions of a project.
The key benefits of data tables for Toric users include:
Toric’s Data Tables offer users a powerful tool for aggregating, organizing, and accessing their data, ultimately improving overall data management and analysis capabilities.
