We've added better support for custom schemas. AI-generated queries that reference tables from schemas with names other than public now actually include the correct schema name in the query. For example, a users table in the datawarehouse schema was previously simply referenced by "users", which made the generated query not work out of the box in some scenarios. From now on, that table would be referenced by "data_warehouse"."users".

Preview: Slack Integration

Introducing Avanty's Slack integration in preview today! Easily find matching Metabase questions for your Slack messages with just a click. No more manual searching for relevant questions in Metabase.

For instance, when Alice asks about the number of orders from France last month, simply click "Find or generate question" on the Avanty Slack integration. Avanty will search your Metabase instance for relevant questions. If none match, it will generate an AI-generated draft in Metabase that's ready for review by data scientists.

We will be launching this feature with select companies at first, and roll it out to a wider audience later. Please get in touch if you're interested in trying this out!
