Arbolus Product Update - July 2023

Laima Cekule - Senior Product Owner
Akvile Paldauskaite - Product Marketing Manager

A quick roundup of the latest Arbolus features, updates and UI improvements designed to enhance your Arbolus platform experience.

The second quarter at Arbolus was pretty exciting!  We reached many internal milestones and released a host of exciting client-facing features to improve your user experience and streamline processes.


Here’s a quick rundown of the latest updates. We truly hope you’re as thrilled about them as we are. 

🚀 More intuitive client user dashboard  

After gathering lots of feedback and exploring different ways to provide a seamless user experience, we've given our client user dashboard a complete makeover. 

The fresh new design brings together all the essential elements of your workflow, allowing you to navigate with ease and manage all your projects, experts and insights more efficiently.

Here’s what we introduced: 

What’s new

Stay updated and quickly action any outstanding tasks. You can now approve new expert profiles, check the latest Canopy answers, and respond to new chat messages with ease.

Upcoming expert availability

View all the upcoming time slots provided by approved experts and schedule your calls straight away. With the earliest availability on hand, you can book all your calls for the day every morning and plan your workload more efficiently.

All Canopies & Projects

With the new dashboard design, you can have a holistic view of all your Canopies and projects in one place. Quickly see which projects are active, paused, or still in draft, so you can launch them as soon as possible.

If you have an Arbolus account, login and check out the new dashboard for yourself.

📝 Simplified project creation

Your feedback was that project creation was a bit complex and time-consuming. To save you time but still allow our team to find the most relevant experts as fast as possible, we simplified the process and stripped down the brief to essentials.

Now we only need a short project explanation with core requirements, your time zone for call scheduling and the main contact for the project. That’s it! All the other parts of the brief are optional, to allow you to set the project in motion even when you're short on time. 

📈 AI-enhanced quick Canopy creation 

Previously, Canopy video insights were only available as part of a project. To allow you to run Canopies separately, you can now create a brief from your main user dashboard without associating it with any project. Simply click the "Get video insights" button at the top of your user dashboard and add your Canopy details.

On top quicker creation, we have enhanced Canopy brief with generative AI, which will now draft as many questions as you need! You can review the AI-generated questions, edit them to ensure they cover everything, and launch it within minutes.

📅 New expert availability schedule 

Time is of the essence in every project and our goal is to help you stay ahead of the deadlines. To allow you to book calls with experts faster, we’ve introduced a clear daily view of expert availability.

You can now view all available time slots for each project in one place and book calls with just one click. In case none of the timings are suitable for your schedule, you can swiftly request experts to provide additional availability.

With this new view, schedule all your calls for the upcoming days with ease, and drive your project forward without friction.

✅ New Status category in the expert list 

When you're dealing with an extensive list of experts, keeping track of who's who and who you've already spoken to can be confusing.

That's why we introduced a helpful new "Status" column within the approved expert list. Now you can see who you’ve had a call with at a glance, and book calls with those still in the queue. 

🔢 Multiple Choice Questions in Canopy 

We strive to equip you with rich, in-depth insights, so we recently launched multiple-choice questions for Canopy! With quantitative answers alongside qualitative expert insights, you can now support your findings with more specific, objective data.

Choose from a range of options, including single-select, multi-select, or range-based questions. Just like with video answers, all multi-choice responses are attributable, so you can request follow-up calls with any respondent.

Since the May release, users have received multiple-choice questions with excitement, providing lots of positive feedback and suggestions for improvements. Keep an eye out for further updates as we work towards ensuring that Canopy provides all the functionality you need.

🎨 Brand new website design  

We decided it was time to freshen up our look, so we gave our website a little upgrade to make sure it better encapsulates who we are, what we offer and how we do it. 

You can now find more information about our platform, solutions for investors and consultants, and our compliance processes. Discover how ArbolusCanopy can help you collect more insights from the best experts in less time, and accelerate your analysis process with AI-powered summaries. 

As a product-led company, we've made our platform central in our designs to showcase its intuitive and user-friendly interface. What do you think?

We hope these features are truly helpful to streamline your processes and we can’t wait to hear your feedback. 

Our team is dedicated to continuously improving our platform, and we have some exciting new features in the pipeline that we can't wait to share with you. Stay tuned for updates!

If you would like to see a quick demo of our platform, please book a slot with our team. Alternatively, if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out to us.
