New Staff Dashboard
We've taken into account feedback of our customers and redesigned the Staff dashboard.

We started by redesigning our top performing section to feature 6 cards instead of the previous 3 or 5. This is now the same on all screensizes.

Finally, we've finished off by adding an All Assignments Completed section which aggregates the total progress towards all assignments across your group.

Search Promo
Today, we begin our rollout of our new 'Search Anything' feature, which allows for rapid navigation.
When designing our Search Anything feature, we wanted it to be more than just a page search. It's a Swiss Army Knife of utilities packed into a tiny footprint.
CleanShot 2024-01-10 at 1 
With our Search Anything feature you can:
  • Search for pages like Activity and quickly navigate with the hit of the enter key.
  • Search for Staff on your Workspace, instantly
  • Get the current time
  • Get the current time of any timezone by name (e.g. 'time in New York'
  • Get the current time for any Workspace member (e.g. 'time for Duckzye')
On the way soon is the ability to search for someone's birthday (e.g. 'Duckzye birthday'), an AI based recommendation engine, ability to search for someone's minutes (e.g. 'Duckzye minutes').
All of these features are part of Hyra's ambition this year to make everything available at your fingertips. Powering this system is new technology that has never been seen before in this industry.
We can't wait to share more 'Search anything' features with you soon. If you have any ideas of what you'd like to be able search, please leave them on our Feedback board.

As we step into the New Year, we are excited to announce a significant speed enhancement to our Views feature. After conducting an in-depth analysis, our team has identified and addressed several bottlenecks within our existing Views system. Key improvements include:
  1. Optimized Pipeline:
    Adjustments to our system pipeline have been implemented, ensuring a more efficient and faster processing experience.
  2. Advanced Session Attendance Logic:
    We've upgraded our logic for handling session attendance, which is now faster and more responsive.
  3. Improved Non-Computed Filters:
    The introduction of non-computed filters reduces server load, facilitating quicker and smoother Views rendering.
These enhancements are part of our ongoing commitment to improve Hyra's performance and user experience. We're constantly working behind the scenes to bring you these and many more improvements, ensuring Hyra remains a top choice for your needs.

Thanks,
Sam and Carl (Docs Team)

We've made some improvements to our mobile UI related to sessions that aims to make the experience better.
Cards now display full screen
When viewing a session card, it now displays in full screen, without any space around it. You close it by clicking X now instead of clicking the background.
Role Picker
The role picker now slides up from the bottom instead of being a smaller popup box, making it easier to see.
Scaling
We've disabled the ability to resize/rescale the page of mobile, to make it more user friendly and consistent.
Bookmarking Improvements
We've improved the manifest file used when you bookmark Hyra on mobile. When book marking Hyra on iOS, it will now feel almost like a native app.
Calendar Arrows
We've improved the way the arrows on the session calendar appear on mobile to avoid them being cut off.
Session logs
Session logs have been moved to a fold away section that can be opened or closed. Session logs are also now socket based, meaning you will see changes in near real-time.
