Keep track of key organizations in your community
new
Orbit App
We’re making organizations a first-class object in Orbit
, so you can spot prospects from interesting organizations who have become active in your community and can use that to build relationships with and support critical new accounts.

Organization table
Under the new Organizations section, you now get a list of all the organizations active in your community. You’ll see the organization name, website, member count, employee count, and the date the organization was first active in your community.
Organization profile page
You can also access rich information about each organization listed in the organization table - from its members to their activities and more. Clicking on one of the organizations in the organization table opens its profile page.
A brand new look for Member Profiles
improved
Orbit App
We’ve redesigned the member profile page around three main panes:
  • Member’s attributes or information such as tags in the left pane
  • Member’s last activity summary in the top right pane
  • Activity feed and notes in the bottom-right pane
These combine to provide an at-a-glance overview of
important member information
and their recent community engagement:

Stay in the loop with notifications
new
Orbit App
Have a hard time keeping track of what's happening in your community across your whole team?
image
We're excited to release our first set of in-app notifications:
  • When a member gets their first GitHub Pull Request merged
  • When a collaborator adds a note to a member
  • When a collaborator joins or leaves your Orbit workspace
  • When an integration or CSV import is completed
You can adjust your notification settings from your General Account Settings.
But this is just the start. We’re currently working on email notifications and making the experience more consistent with our Slack app notifications. In the meantime, let us know about the other notification types that would make you more productive!
Drag and drop member tags for easier and powerful filtering
new
Orbit App
Member tags help you track what makes your community members unique or important to your team. These are things like
VIP
,
beta-program-participant
,
offered-to-speak-at-conference
, etc.
You can now use our new drag-and-drop capability to easily implement any combination of AND/OR/NOT filtering conditions on member tags.
For example, here's how you would use it to select all your community champions who are using your product but are not enterprise product users:
  1. Open the Filters widget
  2. Click on the Tags filter
  3. Click on the Advanced options
  4. Start dragging and dropping tags to match the intended combination

Quick merge for members

Orbit App
You can now merge members directly from the Members table by using the bulk actions menu:
Quick Merge Update
After you've selected two members, click on the Merge Members action. A modal will appear to let you configure and perform the merge.

Following up on our recent large filters upgrades, we've continued to improve the filters and are happy to announce that you can now filter by job Title:

Filters upgrades: new design, better filtering on groups, companies, and locations
new
Orbit App
Following up on the recent enhancements on the Activity Type filter, we’ve completely redesigned and reimagined the filtering experience across Orbit with simplicity and expressiveness in mind.
A simpler design
Each filter is now in its own section, with the most used ones (dates, affiliation and Orbit Levels) available with a single click:

More power, when you need it
While most queries can be expressed with a multiple selection, sometimes a finer-grained approach is required. The Member Tags selection now has two modes,
Simple selection
and
Advanced selection
, to cover all your needs:
CleanShot 2021-10-28 at 16
Multiple selection now available for Groups, Companies and Location
You can now filter on multiple Groups, Companies, or Locations (or any combination of the three!). Perfect to cover geographic regions, or a sector, or a set of specific repositories!
All available companies and locations are now available under this filter, not only the most represented in your community.

We’re looking forward to see all the exciting new use cases this new Filtering experience enables!

Productivity Tools Overview
Slack
Our Slack tool allows you to work directly with your Orbit workspace from your internal Slack channels via the
/orbit
command. This gives you the ability to manually add members, search for members, as well as adding notes and tags without the need to log in to your workspace to do so.
Orbit Chrome Extension for GitHub
Adding the Orbit Extension to your Chrome browser gives you the ability to see your workspace member information directly in GitHub issues and pull requests. You can also use it to create new members and add notes from within GitHub.
Introducing a better activity type filter

The new Activity Type filter is available on all pages, enabling powerful new use cases in Orbit:
  • Showing members that signed up to any recent event;
  • Tailoring the activity feed to the specific activities you’re interested in at the moment;
  • Building reports and dashboards comparing newsletter signups with product signups;
  • …and many others!
