Statistic

We overhauled our Statistic component! Previously, you could only set a single primary value, and we supported limited formatting options. Now, you can also set a secondary value to compare metrics over different time periods (e.g., to show monthly revenue growth). Additionally, the primary and secondary values have the same powerful customization options as our Number Input component, including currency and percent formatting, decimal place control, and more. The new Statistic component supports more features, including the ability to dynamically control positive and negative trend color, set a caption text, control alignment, and more.

Like all of our new components, the Statistic component also has expanded style editor support. You can automatically migrate your old Statistic components to this new version, too! As always, post in our community forum if you have feedback on this new component or feature requests.

Icon library

We now offer over 3,000 searchable icons with support for bold and outline styles. You’ll have access to this library anywhere where you can set an icon in Retool. To use any of our old icons, choose the deprecated icon set. These are rolling out to editors over the next week.
