3. Smart Editor: Rapid App Design

The Smart Editor is the cornerstone of fast app design in Toucan 3.0. It automates common operations to create the right dataset for any chart, without needing extensive data preparation. Builders can now design internal apps ten times faster.

4. Unlimited Filters: Enhanced Exploration Experience

With Toucan 3.0, you can create an unlimited number of filters, unlocking a smoother exploration experience. A dedicated panel centralizes filter management, and filters can be pinned or unpinned within stories.
