New in Sana

January 2022

An even smarter AI co-writer at your fingertips

Assistant is an even better creative partner with our latest UX and feature updates. It can brainstorm topics as soon as you've written a title and continue writing your paragraph as soon as you take a pause. Ideal if you're running low on ideas. Find these features and more from the new Assistant button in the editor.

Learn from the best with community templates

We're making it possible for the world-leading organizations using Sana to share their best content through reusable templates. If you've created something you're proud of, let your customer success representative know. The more we share, the smarter everyone grows. 

Your content, your rules

We want you to make Sana yours. So in addition to the custom UI fonts, you can now configure custom fonts specifically for content headlines. And you can choose between more font sizes in paragraphs. Speaking of paragraphs, we’ve also polished the spacing to improve readability.  

Move more easily through Manage

Manage has had a navigation makeover. The sidebar has fresh icons, the submenu items under Users are gone, and the detail pages have breadcrumbs. In other words, it's easier and quicker to get to where you want to go and remember where you are once you get there.

Progress on reset progress

A small but mighty win for the mandatory course admins—it's possible to reset path progress from the user detail page in Manage. When this happens, your learners can retake any course within that path from scratch. No more re-assigning.

Universal Search unlocks productivity

Say goodbye to scattered knowledge and information silos. Sana can now search all your company's apps in under 100ms and provide an answer in natural language. From git workflow queries and product specs to HR and customer support FAQs, Universal Search puts the right information at everyone's fingertips.

Flip cards add flair and fun

Ask questions or prompts, then let your learners tap to reveal the answers. It's as simple as that. Flip cards are available for live sessions and self-paced courses as a standalone card or a block within a Page card. A neat and sweet way to make your content more interactive—wherever you use them. 

Learner progress is easier to track

We've overhauled the user tab in Manage to give you more control over finding and reviewing learner progress. First, filter users on custom attributes based on any third-party integration. Then select the heatmap to see their progress on any content at a glance. If the user has completed the content, you'll see green. If they haven't completed it, you'll see red.

Tables bring structure and clarity

Rows and columns. Sometimes, there's no better way to organize information. Now you can create tables inside a Page card and structure everything from team to-dos to feature comparisons.

Buttons are now on brand

Your learners should feel at home in Sana. So we've extended custom theming to include all primary action buttons and tabs in the platform. All you need to do is head to Manage settings, add your color code, and receive immediate bonus points from your brand manager.

Sliding scales spark debate

Meet the newest member of the card family: the sliding scale. It's the perfect alternative to a poll or quiz—participants can place themselves anywhere on the scale to indicate a mood or preference. Currently available in Sana Live. Soon available in courses.

Meet your new AI assistant

Sana Assistant is your AI editing partner. Ask it to generate unique images, write paragraphs, create lists, and more. Simply type what you want, and Assistant makes it happen—in line with your style and tone of voice. Your content creation process just got 10x faster.

Eye-catching recommendations

Bold and bright recommendations, unique to what you're learning and creating. That's what each person sees when they land on their Sana Homepage. And if you've set up custom branding, these recommendations will be on brand, too—automatically matched to your chosen colors.

Self-enrollment solves the scheduling puzzle

Conflicting calendars shouldn't be a barrier to session attendance. So now you can let learners pick the live session that best suits their schedule. When assigning, simply select 'let learners self-enroll'. Less work for you, more flexibility for them.

Shine the spotlight in Sana Live

Session facilitators can now pin and enlarge the videos of up to four participants in the Lobby and sidebar. Perfect for highlighting key speakers in panel discussions or keynote presentations in larger group sessions.

Better copy/paste to cut your editing time

You can now copy and paste cards into other self-paced courses or live content. To paste in bulk, just copy the entire module. When you copy live content into a self-paced course, live-only cards like breakout rooms or lobbies will automatically disappear. Available from the editor sidebar and the standard keyboard shortcuts. 

The obsessive details

Smoother navigation - To avoid confusion and save steps, we've removed the 'My workspace' dropdown from the top bar and replaced it with 'Library' and 'Create'.

Keeping time - The countdown timer is now visible in all breakout rooms. When time is up, facilitators can either close the room or reset the clock.

Staying focused - To encourage presence and reduce distraction, we've made it possible to minimize your own video during Sana Live sessions.

Seamless video recording
with Narrations

Narrations let you add detail, context, and flair to your courses. Simply tap the camera icon in the editor to record on any self-paced card. Then hover over the video to start, stop, review, or delete. Goodbye, digital textbook. Hello, more engaging courses.

Sana Live gets a
major design refresh

We’ve overhauled the design in Sana Live to improve the experience for participants and facilitators. Everyone sees more faces in the sidebar, the navigation bar is more visible, and there’s a new topbar for facilitators to manage all session controls.

Live session recaps
for continued learning

Your live sessions are packed with ideas and insights. Now, you can make all that knowledge available to your learners after the session has ended—polls, reflections, questions, and even notepad content. Perfect for those who want a refresher, as well as those catching up.

A glossier glossary and
table of contents

We've optimized the space around course content, so learners see more of what they want when they want it. The table of contents can now stay open as they interact with the course. Learners will also find an updated glossary for context on those hard-to-remember terms.

Let there be light
(and dark mode)

All of Sana’s learning experiences now adapt to your system settings. If you set your computer or phone to dark mode, Sana will follow. If you prefer a lighter setup, there will be light.

Power to the participants with learner-led sessions

Running sessions without dedicated facilitators just got easier. Just select 'participant navigation' when you schedule the session. The feature will let any participant navigate back and forth between cards, open and close breakout rooms, set timers, and close the session.

Smoother navigation in courses and sessions

Navigating through courses and live sessions is about more than orientation. It’s about motivation. That’s why all published courses and live sessions now include a progress bar at the top of the screen.

More control for
content creators

In the new editor, you can now:

  • convert a live session to a self-paced course and vice versa
  • copy and paste an entire card into the same or different course or session
  • unpublish a course once it's published
  • add question explanations and variations
  • assign content to learners directly from the share button
  • invite people to collaborate directly from the share button
