Updates in 2016
Batterii Vision - Image Analysis
What is this? Batterii uses powerful machine learning models to understand the content of your image so that we can provide you with predicted labels, identified locations, and optical text recognition. These fields help Batterii searches provide more useful results with less effort on your part.
What can Batterii Vision detect?
Batterii can more easily detect a broad set of objects within your images and this will improve overtime as more objects and concepts are introduced. This means it will identify animals, modes of transportation, logos, landmarks and more!
Last but not least text detection within images. Batterii Vision will also provide text that can be seen within the image and will identify the language of the text.
Check out how Batterii Vision - Image Analysis can help to identify, sort and organize your assets.
*Batterii Vision is only available on the desktop app at this time.
Batterii Smart Walls (Room/Wall Navigation Saved)
Are you working to add assets to walls in multiple rooms? Want to add content to walls in different rooms quick and easily?
Batterii now remembers the last wall you were working on in each room! No extra clicks needed when you want to quickly move and work between multiple rooms. The last location is saved in all your rooms, this is specific by user and browser.
Easier to Use Room Navigation
Rooms now have a clear and easy path to navigate the room. The new left top navigation clearly helps you transition from Overview to People, Missions and All Assets.
No need to click on an empty wall anymore! You will now see the total assets on a wall just next to the wall name.
Updated Community Member Management

Filtering by Inactive is also available and will allow you to see "last activity" information on a specific user.

Cards with more text
Cards on wall now display up to 6 lines of text in the title. Now you don't have to option every card to review it, take a quick glance and open if you want to read more!
Bulk Tag Assets
Adding content to a Batterii wall has always been quick and easy, now you can bulk tag those assets at the same speed. Then use tags to search the room or search all rooms for other tagged assets.
All New Missions
- Target Mission assignments to specific users in your room instead of all Missions assigned to all room members.
- Run Missions without participants knowing who is conducting the research.
Monitor Mission Progress:
- A new Mission dashboard allows you to quickly check progress, track how much content is coming in, and easily navigate to see content contributed by a specific user.
New "Explorer" user role:
- Conduct Missions with Explorers, who can only view assigned Missions and their own contributions to those Missions.
- Great for conducting blinded research with consumers or keeping an internal team focused on their mission since they won't see your room or its walls.
Easier User Management
Simple view of room participants:
- With a new Room Membership Dashboard, view everyone in a room by role and easily search among all users in a room.
- If enabled by your community manager, room moderators can invite new users from within a room and track invitation status.
Invite users directly into mobile:
- Get mobile users set up and sharing right from their device, without needing to first register on a desktop. Previously, mobile users were first required to sign up for an account on a computer before gaining access to the mobile app. Starting today, this step is gone!
Community recognition on mobile install:
- When new users follow your invitation link, Batterii knows to add them directly to your community without asking them to specify a community name.
- Upon receiving their invitation, Batterii will seamlessly guide them through the process of installing the application and registering their account.
