IPEN numbers can now be recorded and filtered on the accession. This has been introduced as an "opt-in" field (along with Tag Number), with easy toggle controls for these fields in your Collection Site Settings.
With the new opt-in toggles, you can now choose to hide fields and inputs that are not relevant to your site's specific requirements. This customisation reduces clutter and ensures a more intuitive user experience for sites that do not utilise IPEN numbers or Tag Numbers.
Admins now have the ability to deactivate users to prevent access to their organisation. Admins can also reactivate a deactivated user's account. Any deactivated users will be visually indicated throughout the app.
Previously, tags were limited to individual record types, restricting list and map search results to the specific record type where the tag was applied. Now, filter results will show tags applied from all levels, providing a more interconnected view of your plant records.
For example, filtering for a tag applied to a taxon will return the associated accessions and plant materials. Filtering for a tag applied to an accession will return the associated plant materials.
Admins can now create new collection sites from the Settings or Sites page. Whether you manage multiple gardens or facilities, each site can now be easily created and configured with a few clicks.
Introducing a range of new map flows and improvements for that true "maps-first" experience with several improvements, as requested by the community:
You can now categorise your taxa with tags. As with Plant Material tags and Accession tags, these allow you to organise your taxa list based on specific characteristics or attributes. Analysing your tagged taxa can also provide insights into (e.g.) the distribution, diversity, or characteristics of specific plant types that exist in your collection.

The navigation side bar just got a fresh update. Enjoy a more intuitive and streamlined experience as you find your way around our platform.
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.
The dashboard has been enhanced with a new activity card, showing recent record changes to accessions or materials.
You can also see historical counts of records, including changes to your totals compared to the past month. Tap the helper text for more information on how those record totals are calculated.
