Users management redesigned
Users Management has been completely re-designed with efficiency and usability in mind. Check out the updated ‘Manage users’ guide to see how powerful and easy it now is to manage users and permissions, even across hundreds of websites and users.
New ‘write’ permission and ‘admin’ can now create users
We’re also slightly changing what ‘admin’ permission means, and we introduce a new ‘write’ permission for more flexibility. Users with ‘admin’ permissions have more power starting in Matomo 3.6.0: they can now directly create new users and give these users permissions to access the website’s data.
Improvements in reporting and dashboards
In terms of reporting: you can now build more awesome and precise dashboards by including only the metric(s) you need in your dashboard (Try the new widget “Generic > Metric” to display your KPI chosen amongst all of the dozens KPIs available in Matomo). In Referrers reports, “Social network” is now its own Referrer type along Search Engines, Websites, Campaigns and Direct entries. In all email reports, users will now find an “Unsubscribe” link that will let them unsubscribe from the email report. When you segment data in a report and the data is not processed yet, a notification will now explain why and clarify what to do next.
Administration and security improvements
This release also brings dozens of other improvements and fixes. For example the Matomo Glossary has been redesigned and improved. MySQL 5.7.17+ compatibility with support for group replication. And we introduce several security improvements, please learn more about security in the section below.
