Enhancements | July 2019

Hard to believe the year is half way over already! We’ve been busy updating Handrail to make your research efforts more efficient and effective. Here’s a quick overview of the latest enhancements:

  • Workspaces
  • Group Descriptions & Insight Indication
  • Additional Updates & Improvements


We’ve added Workspaces as a more robust and flexible way for your organization to manage research efforts. A Workspace in Handrail can be used as a dedicated space for your team, product line, or business unit to conduct their specific research efforts while still having access to global resources like Personas and Participants. And with the Team and Pro editions, you can create as many Workspaces as you need!

Group Description and Insight Indication

We’ve enhanced the Analysis Groups in Studies by adding a description area and the ability to indicate it as an Insight. You can use both of these new features to give your Research Card Groups additional contextual information and make them stand out when reviewing the findings of your Study.

Additional Improvements

We’re always enhancing little interactions and updating the infrastructure behind the scenes. You may not notice these updates right away, but you will when it matters! Here’s a few examples of how we’re continuously updating the platform to make it even better:

  • Enhanced the Analysis board and Research Cards to be more responsive during collaboration
  • Removed the Persona indications in Results if Participants have not be tagged with them in Sessions
  • Added drag handles to the facilitation notes area during Sessions so you can adjust the size to give more screen area for note taking
  • Increased the tolerance area for highlighting and creating Research Cards from raw results
  • Made the Study tiles UI more modern and scan-able
