New in Avo: SOC 2, branches overview, and unarchive

We’re excited to announce that we’ve achieved our SOC 2 Type II certification—we also got some fresh product improvements since the last product newsletter, including a much needed branches overview, ability to unarchive items directly from the activity log and more.  

Keep scrolling for updates on what we’ve been shipping 🚤

SOC 2 Type II 🔒

Avo is now SOC 2 Type II compliant, proving our commitment to our security principles and controls. Along with the SOC 2 certification we now have automated security monitoring through Vanta that allows us to stay on top of our security practices at all times.

Branches Overview

Branches are one of the most powerful features of Avo, allowing teams to draft, discuss and implement tracking plan changes without disrupting the source of truth and only commit to them once they are ready. 

The ability to create multiple branches allows organizations to work on multiple units of change at the same time but it has come with a challenge: There hasn’t been a place to get a proper overview over all the branches.

Introducing the branches overview

Your workspace dashboard now features a list of all your branches – next to the good old branch activity log. Along with the branch name you can see the branch status (finally!), collaborators, the last action date and more.

We are working on adding more info about each branch, improving the performance and displaying merged and deleted branches but we’d love to get your feedback and ideas for improvement. Head over to the branches overview on your workspace (or simply click the Avo logo in your workspace), try it out and let us know what you think 🤙

If you’re getting started using branches, check out the branches quickstart documentation.

Restore archived items from the Activity Log

Now you can restore items (like events, properties, metrics, etc.) that have been archived in your Tracking Plan directly from the Activity Log on your workspace home screen.

Find the archive activity in the Activity Log, click the three dot menu on the item and select "Restore …".

Learn more about archiving and restoring items in your tracking plan in this doc.
