Heptabase Update - We want your feedback!

Dear Heptabase User,

We hope you are doing well.

In our previous letter, we asked for your feedback on your experiences with Heptabase. We have received many responses and found them to be extremely valuable for our product design, so we have decided to expand upon it. If you have used Heptabase for more than 2 weeks, you will see a pop-up at the bottom of your Heptabase screen asking, "How likely are you to recommend Heptabase to friends and colleagues?” as shown below.


When you see the pop-up in the Heptabase app, you can simply click on the score that reflects your true feelings. If you'd like, you can also provide reasons for your rating in a follow-up question. We value your feedback, as they will help us improve and provide better experiences for you in the future.

Use case - Use Mindmap nodes as an substitute for text elements


This use case comes from one of our Discord community members, andrewap.

As we can see in the image, andrewap imported a PDF of revisions of a writing and then began to revise it again in Heptabase.

In the Discord channel, andrewap said: “I find the way Word handles comments to be quite limiting. The linear, unidirectional nature (comments can only be anchored to chunks of text) of comments in Word just doesn’t work for me. I want to be able to alternate between the micro and macro scales, connect ideas, and attach properties to revisions.”

If you are also conducting research in Heptabase, feel free to share your whiteboard with us!

Our team has been focusing on three things recently and will soon release them to all of you this month. Firstly, we are upgrading the right sidebar to make it more intuitive and powerful, so that it can provide additional functionality for the tab you opened. Secondly, we are implementing more card types, such as highlights, images, videos, and audios, which can be easily tagged and will benefit from the upgraded right sidebar. Lastly, we are upgrading our backend system to enhance syncing speed, stability, and conflict resolution.

We haven't released these upgrades yet as they all require more time for implementation and internal testing. We can't wait to share them with you soon!

FP has produced a comparison video between Heptabase and Logseq regarding the highlighting ability. It is recommended if you are interested in how highlighting works in Heptabase!

Updates from the Heptabase Team

We are excited to share this interview with you once again, as it provides detailed insights into our vision and the roadmap we have towards achieving it.

We hope that these updates will improve your experience on Heptabase and make your learning easier and more enjoyable.
