One of the most useful newly added feature is capability of exporting to CSV. This feature was requested by many people and finally Amazon Quicksight is equiped with export to CSV feature

You can now export your data to CSV by selecting the visual you want to export, clicking on the top-right menu icon, and choosing Export to CSV.

2) Possible connectivity with Microsoft Active Directory

amazonBy this feature, you can now connect Quicksight with your on promise AD using Quicksight AD connector. AD connector acts as a proxy which sends the credentials which have been entered for sign in to your on promise AD for validation purpose.

So now users who has their on promise AD credentials, can not log in into Quicksight using existing AD credentials.

Using Managed Microsoft AD, you can easily provision users across multiple cloud and on-premises domains using trust relationships provisioned with the respective ADs.

3) Aggregate filters for SPICE data sets

Apart from this, Quicksight also added some features like KPI charts by which you can present a single aggregated value from a measure, and also comparisons against another measure or over a time period and Custom ranges for Microsoft Excel spreadsheets which automatically detects the cell range of your table in the sheet when you upload an Excel spreadsheet.
