seempli v2.5: Your Creativity Toolbox

Lidor WyssockyBlog

It’s springtime here in Israel, and this makes a perfect time to launch the latest updated of seempli.

We took this opportunity to redesign the navigation in our platform around what you are aiming to achieve when you work with seempli.

So, without further ado, this is seempli v2.5:

Introducing The seempli Creativity Toolbox

From day one seempli was designed to be used in various contexts and help you achieve different goals. You can use seempli to develop and master your creativity as well as help you generate ideas for a concrete challenge you are facing. You can play with seempli as part of team-building activities as well as use it for spicing up any learning session and make it more effective.

seempli is a powerful platform because all these capabilities are built on a simple set of building blocks which can be combined to fit any context in which you can benefit from being creative (and let’s face it, I don’t think there is a context in which you can’t).

With v2.5 we aimed to take all these usage scenarios and organize things a bit. As of today, when you log into the platform, you just need to decide what it is you would like to achieve.

From that point, your navigation through seempli is based on the need you have defined. If you wish to practice your creative skills you know exactly where to look. If you wish to start an ideation session, just follow the Generate Ideas card and get access to the specific tools you need. And so on.

Needless to say that this is only the starting point. We will continue to develop and expand our unique creativity toolbox so you could use it in even more areas of life and for additional types of activities.

Where’s the Share Insight Option?

Most of you have probably noticed already that the Seed pages across the platform were changed during the past week. The most noticeable change is the absence of the Share Insight option. So, you deserve an explanation. Here’s the thing…

We genuinely believe that whatever your goal is, the work with seempli is even more effective when you save the Insights you capture for future reference. Reflecting back on your creative Insights is an essential part of improving your skills.

With that in mind, we realized that when it comes to your work, you deserve much more control over your data than we can provide at this time. You rightfully expect to have an excellent search capability, and tagging, and permission or sharing management, and so on. And the thing is, there are so many great platforms out there designed just for that – platforms which are doing an excellent job providing all these capabilities and more. Many of you are already working with Evernote, or OneNote, or Google Keep in any case, so why would you want to save your Insights in a different place? Our focus at seempli is providing you the best tools possible to ignite your creativity. Providing you with good tools for managing your visual or textual insights is just not our domain.

So, we highly recommend that you keep saving your Insights and use them for reflection as much as possible. To do that with maximum benefit and control we recommend using one of the leading note-taking platforms mentioned above. Our personal favorite is Evernote, but any similar tool will do the job just fine. Just create an Insight Journal notebook or section or label, and keep working with seempli just as you did until now. The only difference in your workflow would be to upload the Insights you capture to the platform you chose, and optionally add a link back to the Seed or Prism page.

If you would like to download your existing Insights, just drop us a message. We would be happy to provide you with a download link together with 1 free month of seempli Pro membership as a compensation for the inconvenience.

We believe this approach is a move forward both for you and for us. It will make your workflow more natural, and it will allow us to continue making seempli the best creativity tool there is.
