Enhanced Search


I visited one of our long-time customers to observe how they use BumbleBee at their child care center and get feedback on potential improvements. I observed that the director nimbly jumped around BumbleBee by almost exclusively using the “Global Family Search” in the menu bar (shortcut key “/” or backslash). Her hands rarely left the keyboard to use the mouse. It was effortless.

It was then that I realized how integral the family data search is for our users. We’ve made many improvements over the years, but this past weekend we deployed our biggest enhancement since we launched the family data search. We now have given the ability to search on email addresses as well while at the same time doubling the average speed of search.

This little bit of magic took a lot of work behind the scenes but the result is a vastly improved user experience. On a related note, we made the family index page (hit enter in the global search area). We also improved its performance and reformatted it to have only the information you need.

Please let us know if you have any thoughts or feedback on the enhancements.
