Heptabase Update - Upgraded the backend and sync process, Recap of Q1 2024, and more!

Dear Heptabase User,

To ensure better support for our users around the world, we've relocated half of the team to London in recent weeks. We are now officially a globally distributed team, and our engineers are active 24/7!

Regarding the Heptabase app, we’ve been focusing on upgrading our backend in the past two week to improve its performance and stability.

If you've experienced slow syncing in the past (especially for the mobile app), please upgrade to the latest version for both desktop (v1.31.9) mobile app (v1.16.7). The initialization of sync should be much faster now, and you should be able to take note immediately after opening Heptabase without the need to wait for data syncing.

Aside from the backend upgrade, you can now enlarge images by pinching them on the mobile apps. We'll continue making these small but important updates in the next few weeks!

Use case: Managing card databases with tags and properties

Alan just posted the third video in the Heptabase Fundamentals series. In this video, he discusses how to manage card databases with tags and properties. If you've been wondering when to use a tag instead of a whiteboard, and how to use Table and Kanban View with tags and properties, we strongly recommend checking this out!

Recap of Q1 2024​

We've also added some popular features that have been requested since the start of Heptabase, including:

If you're new to Heptabase, or haven't visited our changelog recently, we encourage you to check it out. We believe these new updates will be very beneficial for your learning and research process.

We appreciate everyone who has provided feedback and suggestions. We will conduct another poll soon. Stay tuned!

Our friend Doktor Panda has uploaded another excellent video on how you can use Heptabase to breakdown a book. We especially love how Doktor Panda uses sections and the table of content of whiteboard to present this video!

The author of the newsletter Productivus, Riccardo, has written another great article titled "Heptabase - How I Am Learning About Investing with It". We enjoy seeing how he learned about investing through Heptabase. It's definitely worth a read!

On Wednesday, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the east coast of Taiwan. Our team in Taipei is safe, and we hope that you are safe too. Thanks for all the warm and caring messages!

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