Map filters

Focus the view of your mapped materials with our new map filters

You can now filter your map markers based on plant material Location, Status, Material Group, Tag Number, Notes, and even Tags. By filtering the visibility of markers, you can probe your collection in a very visual and interactive way. Combine these filters with the search box for an even more powerful mapping experience!

Member access roles

Manage the access permission of your organisation's members

You can now specify "Read-Only", "Editor" and "Admin" permission levels for individuals.

To do this, head to the Members page of your organisation in Settings. As an "Admin", you can invite new members and manage other members' roles within the organisation. As an "Editor", you can create, edit, and delete records, but managing organisational members is not permitted. As a "Read-Only" member, you can only view, search, and filter records (editing records is not permitted).

You can also specify the access permission level when you are inviting new members to your organisation.

Add new material

Add plant material to existing accessions with greater ease

After receiving feedback on the ability to add new plant materials, we have made it easier to do that through our side menu. Look out for the + New Material option, where you can now add plant materials to existing accessions. Find the relevant Accession Number where prompted and Hortis will automatically assign the next available plant material qualifier to the new material.

Create, edit, and filter by tags

Use tags to categorise your records

We have added the ability for you to add and edit tags to your records. You can also narrow your search based on particular tags, using the filters in the list view. Tags can be created on the accession or the plant material record, so they can be customised to suit your garden's needs. To manage all your site's tags, head to the Settings page of your collection site.

Switching collection sites

We've made it easier for you to switch between collection sites. Tapping the name of your garden on the side menu brings a Switch Garden drop-down, allowing you to switch to other gardens that you are an invited member of. This method of switching sites also applies to those of you who are currently trialling Hortis, where you can switch between your own garden dataset or a pre-populated garden dataset.

Mapping, now with list and photos

The map now includes a collapsible list with matching plant material and featured image. This will make it even easier for you to find what you’re looking for. On mobile, you can switch between the list and the map and on larger monitors, you have more capabilities directly available to you making the most of the screen real estate you have.

App-wide design refresh & navigation improvements

We've given our whole app a design refresh, making it easier for you to read and navigate through your collection. This also includes a simpler sidebar with collection site settings, and a trail of links (called "breadcrumbs") to indicate the location of the record within your collection.

With our cleaner look, you can speed up how you navigate through your records and better understand the hierarchy of your database.

More advanced Sorting and Filtering

You can now sort and filter on more plant material columns, including sorting on a few hidden columns, such as "last updated". 

On desktop and tablet, you will notice a vertical ellipsis button to the right of a focused column header. Click this and you get direct access to filter (where available) and column sorting. To sort a hidden column, click the “Filters” button and select the “sort by” button. You will then have access to all sortable columns. On mobile, click the filter button.

Tip : By sorting your plant material by “last updated (newest first)”, you get a list of the plant materials that have been changed most recently.
