On July 24th we’ll be saying goodbye to the old Kin and rolling every customer over to the new Kin. That means from that day forward customers will no longer be able to switch back and forth between the two versions. Until then, every user can click the banner at the top of the screen when they sign in to give the new Kin beta a try.
One of the best parts of the new Kin is the speed at which our team ships improvements and fixes. At this point though there are big feature improvements we want to begin releasing that we won’t be able to support in two places. Given the team’s velocity and the fact that a majority of customers have already moved over, it’s time to make the transition.
So where’s Kin headed?
Our near future roadmap is focused on three facets: interface, utility, and portability. Our work in Kin’s interface will continue to make working in the tool more efficient. Our efforts in utility will improve the employee review experience as well as give time off analytics and reporting an upgrade. Finally, portability – we’re going to do a better job working with other apps and data, starting with improvements to our API.
As we’re hoping you’ve grown accustomed to already, you’ll continue to see regular, incremental improvements released and, when anything big is headed your way, we’ll make an announcement via our blog and email.
Sign up for a demo of the new Kin.
If your team still hasn’t made the switch, we’ll be doing public walk-throughs of the new Kin daily from July 9 through July 16th. You can sign up for any day, and even offer them up to your employees.
It’s due to our customer’s feedback that the new Kin has improved so quickly. Thank you for your ideas, suggestions, and bug hunting. We’re excited to chart new territory with you all moving forward.
As always, we’re here to answer your questions or talk about this change. Please contact us at TheTeam@KinHR.com or by reaching out directly from within Kin.
