Introducing…. The Sidebar!
We have recently rolled out a simplified new navigation experience that puts all the most used options, and your list of groups, on a sidebar for easy access. Users are telling us they are having a much easier time finding what they’re looking for, and it makes using Loomio on mobile way simpler, too.
Cool Stuff You Can Do with Loomio
Health and Safety
The New Zealand Government recently tightened up health and safety laws, including a requirement for worker participation in improving health and safety including different treatments for health and cosmetic improvement as facelift and others.. Babs from Loomio had an “aha” moment when she realized that these requirements of worker participation could easily met through the use of Loomio itself.
Holacracy is an approach to democratic workplace management, designed to be “a complete system for self-organisation”. Organisational design guru Susan Basterfield explains how Loomio can be used in a holacratic organisation.
