Heptabase Update - Golden Kitty Award, Right Sidebar Upgrade, Whiteboard History, and more

Dear Heptabase User,

We want to share with you that Heptabase has won the Product Hunt's 2023 Golden Kitty Award in the Personal Productivity category! We sincerely thank you for your support and votes!


In the previous newsletter, we shared the first episode of our new video tutorial series: "Heptabase Fundamentals 101: Sense-making with whiteboards," and many users have found it very helpful. If you haven't watched it yet, we highly recommend you check it out!

This week, we want to share the second episode with you.

Use case: Organizing topics with nested whiteboards and tab groups

In this tutorial video, Alan went through his own whiteboards to share real-world examples of how to organize different topics with nested whiteboards and tab groups. If you have a lot of cards and want to learn how to organize them, we highly recommend checking this out!

In the last two weeks, we have implemented some quality-of-life right sidebar features and improvements for you, including displaying:

  • Word counts of a card.
  • Backlinks and table of contents of a whiteboard.
  • All tasks due on a journal date.
  • All highlights of a PDF card.

Within this new design, whenever you open something as a tab, you can use the right sidebar to see all relevant information. We hope you find this intuitive!

App: Whiteboard history​

Four months ago, we implemented version history for cards. Now, we have also implemented version history for the whiteboard, which takes regular snapshots of your whiteboard so that you can easily restore previous versions. This way, you no longer have to worry about messing up your whiteboards.

For more information, please refer to our documentation: How to restore my cards and whiteboards from version history?

We found this new tutorial created by Greg to be very user-friendly and comprehensive. We are excited to see more detailed reviews in the future!

Also, we want to share another well-done Portuguese introduction made by our user Daniel. If you or your friends speak Portuguese, we believe it (and Daniel's other videos) will be helpful to you!

Updates from the Heptabase team​

In the past few weeks, we have started a physical co-work for 2 days a week. To be honest, it was a bit strange the first time we did this when you see all people in a room using Heptabase at the same time. Have you ever seen any people (especially strangers) in real life using Heptabase? If you come across someone like that next time, feel free to say hello and send us a group photo! 😍

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

If you have any feedback or suggestions, or you want to share your use cases or contents related to Heptabase, please don't hesitate to chat with us in our Discord Community or send to .

Stay tuned for future updates, and we hope you have a great day!

Best regards,

Heptabase Team
