Past releases

August 2023 update

  • A detail view throughout Nestr - Now Nestr on desktop has a panel on the right that shows up when you click anything. This means you can stay anchored on your circle page or board where you are working while updating the details on a role, project or todo.

June/July 2023 update

  • Meet Nestradamus - our purpose driven AI bot - It is now possible to capture, store and calculate numbers, values, percentages and more right within Nestr. Use it to track leads, revenue or whatever else is important for your business.

  • Custom default circle roles - Nestr now allows you to create and customise the default roles that will be added to your new circles/teams

May 2023 update

  • AI-Powered org builder - Let Nestr setup your initial structure for your self-organised and/or decentralised organisation.

  • HolaSpirit sync - It is now possible to sync Nestr with Holaspirit. This will allow you to use both Nestr and Holaspirit side by side or if you are a HolaSpirit user and you want to try Nestr out, you can do so based on your existing data.
  • Custom feedback forms - Nestr now allows you to define your own custom feedback forms to be used for your peer-to-peer feedback.

April 2023 update

  • Completed work filter - We now allow you to hide completed projects/todos after a certain time rather than just show/hide them. By default we will now show completed work for another week before they are hidden. Check the below video and make sure to watch till the end as we have a nice surprise for you 🎉

Jan/Mar 2023 update

  • Metamask signup/login - We added the option to signup and login using Metamask. We already allowed for integrating with different DAO technologies, this will give you access to all your DAO tools using the same credentials.
  • Updated notification emails - When you mention your collegue/peer in a feed post, they will now receive an email notification with the whole message including any links so they don't have to go to Nestr first to read it.
  • Community workspaces - It is now possible to create a community only workspace where there is no notion of governace (circles/roles) or work. Within your community you can create nested communities/organisations that do use these tools if you want to.
  • Bug fixes - Including, avoiding double workspace creation, improved search engine indexing, 

Sept/Dec 2022 update

  • Keep/Start/Stop feedback form - We added the option to choose between two feedback formats with our feedback app. Next to our 'Behaviour' option we now offer a 'Keep/Stop/Start' option.Nestr - Keep/Start/Stop feedback form
  • Persistent tab selection - We used to always show the 'Feed' tab for all circles and the 'About' tab for roles. Now, if you select a tab on a role or circle we will return to that tab when you navigate back to the circle or role.
  • People search - When you search we will now include people in the search results. For each user, we'll show the roles they fill right in the results and you can instantly click through to their profile.
    Nestr - Search for people
  • Auto search - When you are searching, we will start showing results automatically with out you having to hit enter.
  • Integration with Hypha DAO - Nestr can now integrate with your Hypha DAO and automatically load all your proposals so you can start collaborating in line with your DAO agreements.
  • User home - When entering a workspace we now navigate the user directly to 'their' circle. So you won't land in the top circle but in the highest circle you fill a role in saving many of you a few clicks especially in larger organisations.
  • Improved Dutch translations - with the help of one of our users we improved the Dutch translations.
  • Many server and infrastructure updates - We did much work on the backend to allow for quicker and automated releases, faster database read/writes, automated scaling and a bunch of small improvements and bug fixes.

July/August 2022 update

  • Google and Office 365 Single Sign On - It is now possible to signup and login using your Office 365 and/or Google account. This means you will automatically be logged into Nestr as long as you are logged in Google/Office 365. It also means you and your colleagues don't need to manage yet another password. If your already use your gmail/google/office 365 email in nestr, all you need to do is login using the new login buttons and we'll find your account and link them up.

  • Include sub-circles in your feed - In your circle feed you can now choose to include/exclude all conversations happening in sub-circles so you can move between oversight and focus based on your needs. Nestr - Circle base communication channels
  • Organisation wide channels - You can now define organisation wide channels that will show up on all sub-circles. Each circle may still add their own specific channels as they see fit. This is great for common communication practices that are used throughout your organisation. For example, 'Daily standup' or 'Social' channels where you can see the whole organisation come together in one channel while allowing each person to stay focussed on their team/circle.Nestr - Organisation wide channels
  • Scheduled posts - You can now schedule posts to be posted at a later date. This is great if you wish to remind yourself and your team of something at a certain time. It is also possible to make these scheduled posts recurring each day/week/month/year. This way you can post a reminder to provide your daily standup, weekly update, monthly returns or birthdays. It is possible to post these scheduled posts to any channel and in any circle.Nestr - Scheduled posts to your feed and channels
  • Discord bot commands - Our Discord bot now supports the /accountable and /roles commands. You can use these to for example to figure out who and what role is accountable for 'Design', 'Javascript' or any other topic you might be debating. This way you can always figure out who is accountable for a certain topic and move from endless debates to action. The /roles command allows you to quickly see what roles you or any of your peers hold so you can engage the right people on the right topics.Nestr - Discord bot bringing governance to your conversations
  • Improved DAO proposals layout - We have revamped our DAO proposals page to allow you to quickly find the relevant and recent proposals that you might want to interact with. We grouped them in columns associated with their lifecycle state. Nestr - Integrating with Decentralised Autonomous Organisations

June 2022 update

  • Circle comms - Each circle in Nestr now comes with their own feed where you can configure communication channels relevant for the circle. The feed will show all messages posted to the circle and any of its roles/projects. This feature will allow you to focus on the comms relevant to your and your circle, and ignore the noise in the rest of the organisation. We have many plans on how to extend on these foundations. Nestr - Introducing the feed and channels for improved circle based communication
  • Sticky agendas - All meeting agenda's are now available regardless how far you scroll down so that you can always capture your items without having to scroll to the top of the page.Nestr - Sticky agendas for quick entry
  • Simpler navigation - We drastically reduced the number of tabs on our circle and role pages making it a lot easier to find the information you need.Nestr - Simplified tab navigation
  • Moved Tensions into an app - The tensions functionality has been moved into its own app so that those that want to can turn it on or off based on your needs.Nestr - A Tensions app for improved configurability

May 2022 update

  • DAO Integration - Nestr now integrates with DAOhaus and Aragon. This means you can link your Nestr workspace with your DAO of choice and Nestr will automatically sync all DAO proposals into Nestr. There you can apply all of Nestr's magic to your proposals to enrich them with our collaboration tools. Eg. upgrade your proposal to represent a role, circle, project, project board and/or add any number of sub-projects/tasks to them. Here is an example where we converted a DAOhaus proposal into a Kanban board.
