Dashboard Release Notes
We’re constantly improving the Parse.ly dashboard by adding new features, refining existing ones, and eradicating bugs. This is a record of changes our customers see in the dashboard.

Parse.ly’s on-page analytics bookmarklet now has seven metrics for evaluating slot performance, as well as referrer, visitor, and device breakdowns on each and every page.
June 5, 2017

May 16, 2017
- IT experts will be happy to know that Parse.ly now supports SAML 2.0. This makes it possible for admins to connect Parse.ly to identity management services like Okta or OneLogin, set up single sign-on, and onboard and offboard users in one place.
- Admins can enforce log ins with Google Authentication or their preferred identity management service.
- Creating reports is much simpler with a clean new interface.
- Admins, rejoice! You can now change permissions and site access for multiple users, instead of trudging through one by one.
- Network admins can manage users for all sites in their publishing network and grant other users network-level access.
- Admins of more than one site can filter users by site access, permissions, and email address.
