In the realm of data analysis, it's crucial to understand the origins of the data behind the graphs, KPIs, and key business insights.
That's why we've introduced a feature that lets you connect your projects to any Maven data set or source data from external sources.
Now, you can explore the original data for any project on Maven. This provides several advantages:
You can examine the data source of a project and draw your own conclusions from it.
You can gain insights from other people's work by analyzing their source data, which will help you enhance your data analysis skills.
You can pinpoint significant data points and explain how a project was developed.
We believe that this feature will simplify the learning process, improve collaboration, and make data exploration more engaging.

We are excited to announce a new feature on Maven Analytics that allows users to select their preferred aspect ratio when embedding media in their portfolio projects. With this update, users can now choose from four different aspect ratios: 16:9, 4:3, 9:16, and 9:21.
What does this mean for you?
This new feature gives users greater control over how their media is displayed within their portfolio projects. They can choose the aspect ratio that best suits their content and presentation style, ensuring that their work is showcased in the best possible way.
How does it work?
When creating or editing a portfolio project, users can now choose their desired aspect ratio from a dropdown menu. Once selected, the media will be automatically resized to fit within the chosen aspect ratio while maintaining its original quality.
What are the benefits?
With this new feature, users can customize their portfolio projects to match their personal preferences and showcase their work in the best possible way. We know that not all dashboards are created the same and this new feature allows all types of dashboards to be presented clearly.
We hope that this new feature enhances your experience with Maven Analytics and helps you to create more polished and professional portfolio projects. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or feedback by reaching out to our support team.

The rich-text editor is now available for project descriptions. This feature makes it easier for you to customize the format, styling, and layout of your project descriptions and allows you to build more rich case studies about your projects without the need for complicated markdown formatting.
Key capabilities include:
Text style formatting (H1 - H6, Quote, Code block)
Bold Italic Underline, Strikethrough, and code formatting
