May 2022 changelog

Automatic geofence boundaries with Radar’s Places database

While you may know approximately where all your locations are to create a set of geofences, it’s unlikely you have the fully mapped polygons with detailed boundaries. Now in beta, we’ve introduced the ability to link your imported geofence locations to a nearby matching geofence polygon from our Places database of millions of points-of-interests, allowing you to snap to the full polygon geometry automatically.

This means that you can use Radar’s highly accurate and battle-tested geometries without any additional work. Just import the addresses or centerpoints you have and let Radar give you the best matching geofence geometries.

Place matching in the Radar dashboard

In this example, imported geofences centroids (shown in orange) were 87 meters and 46 meters from the known Radar polygons for two different Four Seasons Hotels. Based on a preset maximum distance threshold, Radar linked the original import to the known location from the Radar Places database (shown in purple). This allows for a large import of addresses to be converted to geofences with fully known footprints, and all without any additional configuration or time spent drawing boundaries.

Contact your account manager or ask our sales team to learn more about this beta.

Radar is now integrated with Attentive

Attentive, a leader in SMS marketing, is now an available integration in Radar that can be used by all customers in the Enterprise plan tier. With the addition of Attentive, Radar now supports 15 different event integrations. Full documentation for Radar's Attentive integration is available.

Radar event tables and query exports

When viewing the events tab in Radar’s dashboard, you can now see a full table of results for any query. In addition, new event fields have been added to allow for additional groupings, like geofence external id to compare enter events across geofences. For example, if you represent physical stores with unique external ids, you can now query to view the number of events across all stores for a given time period.

When doing an analysis, you can also now customize which rows are visible in the line chart and search across table rows. The entire query result can also be exported to CSV
