New Features


Many of us have standards for how we’d like our reporting to look -- the tone used, numbers shown, style of report -- especially if you’re an analyst and presenting to a stakeholder.


Most of the time, the values that are fed in from your data set are not formatted the way you’d like for an external report.


That’s why we introduced additional formatting options for your Quill stories that can be found under the ‘characterizations’ tab in the settings modal:


  • Large value suffix: This setting allows you to choose how large numbers (e.g. millions, billions, trillions) are formatted. Oftentimes, it reads better to write 2,900,000 as 2.9 million.
  • Decimal places: This setting allows you to choose how large numbers (e.g. millions, billions, trillions) are formatted. Oftentimes, it reads better to write 2,900,000 as 2.9 million.
  • Negative values: Choose to show negative values with either negative/minus symbol or parentheses.
  • Spell out integers: Integers 10 and under are often spelled out as a standard writing style. This can be disabled by toggling to "no".
