People and group management

Interactive embedding

You can embed all of Metabase in your app.

Dashboard subscription and alert customization

Custom filter values

Send different groups of people the contents of a dashboard with different filters applied. You only need to maintain one dashboard, which you can use to send results relevant to each subscriber.

Restrict which domains people can send alerts and subscriptions to

As an additional security layer, you can whitelist domains, which restricts people from sending alerts and subscriptions to email addresses that don’t use an approved domain.

Suggest recipients on dashboard subscriptions and alerts

You can also control which recipients Metabase suggests when people create dashboard subscriptions and alert.

Content moderation tools

Tools for keeping your Metabase organized, so people can find your most important, verified items.

Advanced caching controls

All Metabase editions include global caching controls. Paid plans includes additional caching options that let you control caching for individual questions.

Model persistence for individual models

Usage analytics

See how people are using your Metabase.

Admin tools

See which queries are failing to help keep your Metabase tidy.
