In April, our team focused on enhancing the user experience: from a new sidebar and filter for accessions, to a resolved issue with the map center display. We're also thrilled to unveil our brand-new logo, carefully crafted to reflect our values and mission. 

Behind the scenes, we're laying the foundation for taxonomic capabilities. Discover more about this exciting development and join us for our next webinar on how to master the art of inventorying your collection. Read more about April’s highlights and sign up to the webinar below.

Revamped navigation experience

The sidebar on our platform has received a fresh, new update, offering an even more intuitive and streamlined experience. Enjoy the ease of switching between sites and accessing other collections that you are part of, all in one place. With its sleek design and enhanced functionality, you'll find it even easier to navigate our platform and access the features you need.

New filter for "Material Received"

You can now easily filter your list of accessions based on the type of material received (such as Plant, Seed, Cutting, etc.). Like all of our filters, this can be combined with the search bar for a more powerful search.

Unveiling our new logo

We're thrilled to introduce the new Hortis logo, embodying data-driven solutions and innovation for the global community of botanic gardens. Our new logo is a symbol of our commitment to providing powerful tools to help botanic gardens harness the full potential of their data.

We hope that this new visual identity will resonate with our users, and further excite you all about the positive future of plant records. Click here to read more about the significance of our new logo and how it reflects ongoing work at Species360.
