For dessert:

Rename Materials to Inventory fields

We've renamed 'Material' in experiments to 'Inventory field' to reflect better their purpose of connecting to the Inventory. To get started with the Inventory module, check out our 28min webinar here.

Entity Preview in Modal

Clicking on Resources, Items or Devices within an Experiment will open a modal instead of redirecting to the full page. This way, you can quickly view, modify or add Metadata about your Resource/Item/Device without leaving the experiment page!

Search in the Left-Hand Pane

We've made Filter shortcuts even easier to use. Collections, Categories and Locations are now ordered alphabetically in the Filter shortcut pane to find what you're looking for more easily. Additionally, you can now search directly for a Collection, Category, User, Tag or Location to quickly filter by it instead of scrolling through a long list.

That's it for now...
