Product Update: Notify Your Colleagues of Important Changes to Your Business!

Our Comments feature in Outlier just got more powerful! Commenting has always allowed you to add context to a story and collaborate with teammates. With this update, you can now tag specific team members, ensuring they (and only they) get alerted to your comment. You can find it in the Comments section of the story as seen in the image below:

You can also tag multiple people to view a comment. Outlier notifies you as to how many people you have selected. One of the core benefits is to send and get feedback from multiple stakeholders across your departments. This is important to ensure strong communications between cross-department or cross functional roles. This comment tagging update allows stakeholders to speed up the distribution of news about potential causes to your stories and receive feedback in a collaborative environment. With Outlier’s Automated Business Analysis platform, we put the power of artificial intelligence in your hands.

Previous Outlier Product Announcements

Previously, we announced that users can also access year-over-year analysis in stories. Together, this year-over-year update along with the seasonality modeling Outlier already provides, help customers see how impactful their annual business results are. Think about how a retailer could benefit from being reminded of a significant shift in sales from one campaign to the next. Teams from marketers to product could also see revenue year-over-year for a specific set of dates immediately when clicking within the Outlier story to identify the root cause analysis.

Outlier identifies unexpected changes across business data so that marketing, data scientists and analysts can make more informed decisions quickly. As an automated business analysis platform, Outlier discovers hidden patterns and relationships that are impossible to find manually without AI algorithms.
