Spreadsheet-like custom columns

Extract parts of date/times, combine columns and more, without going into the advanced query builder.

Planned for the next release or two

Better caching

Algorithm improvements, clearer and more scalable UX, more granular control.

Data quality monitoring

Understand the health of your models.

Databricks driver

A new, officially supported driver.

Embedding React SDK

BigQuery, Snowflake, and more.

Faster and fresher fingerprinting

Better insight into the shape of your data.

Model improvements

Faster UX, foreign key mapping, custom filter values.

More dashboard improvements

Drag cards from the sidebar, reduce manual resizing of elements, zoomed in card view, dashboard templates and more.

New charts: sankey and boxplot charts

And potentially even more charts.

Parameterize date granularity

Ability to include parameters in SQL snippets.

Pivot table improvements

Better UI, pivoted downloads, and more.


Use dashboards as folders themselves for single-use questions, reducing clutter.

Static card parameters

Hardcode parameters for individual questions in dashboards.

Coming in the next 6 months or so

Action auditing, analytics, and permissions

Know who did what, when (and keep it under control).

Data warehouse cost insights

Know how much your queries cost, optimize (or kill) expensive queries.

Faster caching with external providers

Memory caching for blazing-fast query results.

Granular embedding via SDK

Build interactive analytics experiences using only specific parts of Metabase, in your app.

Lineage and debugging

Understand how you’re getting your results and pinpoint issues.

Better maps

Plot more metrics, draw polygons, build heatmaps, and more.

Consumption in mobile

Improvements to dashboards, viz and navigation in mobile contexts.

Dynamic goals

Define goals using other questions.

Even more dashboard improvements

Events in dashboards, dashboard verification, more visual customization and more.

Improvements to custom filter values

Key/value pairs and more flexibility.

JSON support for more databases

BigQuery, Snowflake, Redshift, and more.

Multi-level schema support

Reusable queries

Create a query once and visualize in different ways. Pairs well with parameters.

Revamped table visualizations

Better density, zebra-striping, scrolling, text wrapping, and more.

Visual custom expressions

Do things like string extraction, concatenation, and basic calculations without writing any formulas.


Call external services from events in Metabase.
