Tuesdays with Tadabase - March 14th 2023

:alarm_clock: You’d never know we lost an hour with all the leaps our team has been making this week! Here’s the scoop on what we’ve been up to :spoon: :ice_cream:

:toolbox: Starting off, we’ve made some improvements to our CDN and how apps load. This is still a work in progress and we are continuing to make further improvements. The TL;DR is that we’re adding more caching to the users’ browser to speed up on page loads after the initial one. The first page load may take 2-3 seconds, however, each subsequent request will load the primary app data in less than 7ms. We’re excited about the many additional performance improvements we’re working on and by next week’s update there should be another significant update to caching and CDN. As always, stay tuned! :notes:

:bug: We’ve also squashed some pesky bugs in our PDFs including: fixing date formula issues with multiple components, missing currency symbol and decimal places, and page limitation not working. For a full list of the bug fixes, see our release notes here.

:checkered_flag: This week, we announced that we are discontinuing our Free plans. This will allow us to allocate more of our team’s resources to other ventures (including those listed on our goalmap :dart:). To read more on why we chose to do this, check out Moe’s post here. We’re excited for even more scalability, reliability and product improvements to come!

:school_satchel: Don’t scurry away, we have a new Build it with Tim episode! This week, Tim teaches us to Build a Moving & Packing App with the ability to manage items being packed, print a packing list, and generate QR codes to track inventory. It’s a good one, folks! :truck:

:zap: Our wondrous engineers have rolled out some more templates this week:

  • Refurbishment Management - Easily track and manage each refurbishing project’s status, including the product’s details, the refurbishment process’s status, and any associated notes or documents. You can also leave comments for team members and track progress as they work through each step of the refurbishing process. Check it out! :hammer_and_wrench:

  • Employee Performance Review Tracking for the HR industry - Track employee performance reviews with automated review scheduling, performance score calculations, and automated alerts to employees and HR. Preview or download the app here! :globe_with_meridians:

:scissors: Snippet of the week:

Count on this snippet to simplify your processes by adding a number count in a badge (with extra filters). Use this to display a count of the total number of records connected to the logged-in user’s company inside a badge on the menu component. Take a look and snip the code here!

Aand that’s a wrap on this one, Tadabasers. Happy building and see you next week! :parachute:
