You can enable or disable the features below in your project’s Preferences page, found at /settings/workspace/preferences.


Add new block v2

An improved experience for adding new blocks to your pipeline in the Pipeline Editor (/pipelines/[pipeline_uuid]/edit), which allows you to search for existing block files and use data integration blocks inside of a standard (batch) pipeline.

Command center

Refer to this page for details on the Command Center.

Compute management (beta)

Adds a Compute management tab to the navigation pane that allows you to configure Spark using a standalone cluster or AWS EMR.

Custom design

Allows you to change the header logo. Refer to this page for more details and instructions.

Data integration in batch pipeline

This requires the Add new block v2 feature above to be enabled as well. It allows you to add data integration blocks (as a data loader or data exporter block) inside of a standard (batch) pipeline, which lets you load data from different sources or export data to different destinations. This allows more flexibility inside of a batch pipeline, instead of using a data integration pipeline.

The data integration blocks can be found in the All blocks -> Data loader -> Sources and All blocks -> Data exporter -> Destinations flyout menus in the Pipeline Editor.

Dbt v2

An improved experience for adding dbt models from your files and configuring/running your dbt blocks in the Pipeline Editor (/pipelines/[pipeline_uuid]/edit).

Global hooks (beta)

An advanced feature that adds a Global hooks tab to the navigation pane, allowing you to create hooks attached to an operation (e.g. create, update, delete) on some resource (e.g. Pipeline, Pipeline Run, Block Run) that execute an associated pipeline when a certain condition is met.


Refer to this page for details on block interactions.

Display local timezone

Refer to this page for more details on displaying timestamps in your local timezone.

Notebook block output split view

Allows you to show the block output to the right of a code block (instead of below it) in the Pipeline Editor. You can choose where to display the block output by clicking View in the subheader and selecting “Show output next to code” or “Show output below block”.

Operation history

Keeps track of recently viewed pipelines so you can easily navigate back to them in the Pipelines Dashboard (/pipelines). Adds a RECENTLY VIEWED tab to the Pipelines Dashboard that lists these pipelines.
