What’s new in Dovetail: September 2022

1 September 2022

Do you know where last week’s research report is? What about the research report you wrote three months ago? It could be in that chat thread or maybe it’s filed away in a shared folder everyone supposedly has access to but can never find.

You’re doing amazing work! Don’t let it get lost in file dumping grounds. This month we’ve released new features that will give your research a life beyond the read-out meeting.

  • Collections: Bring together research reports old and new

  • Topics: Connect similar research to see the bigger picture

  • Chart filters: Analyze your data from new points of view

  • Extension tags: Discover trends across research projects
