New things released and bad things fixed

  • We’re outta beta, gata!
  • Our onboarding experience is better. It’s not perfect, but it is, at the very least, better. And by better we mean simpler.

Our first changelog for Obie in Stride

We recently wrote about our experience building Obie for Stride. Suffice it to say we’re proud of v1 and grateful for the feedback from our early adopters.

It’s important to us that you know that we’re working hard to make Obie better. Below you’ll be able to read and see…


Saying goodbye to bloat features

Obie is spring cleaning his dam. With that comes the removal of a handful of features on Obie’s dashboard for all teams, including teams now and into the future. The features will be removed on March 9. …

Here’s what’s new:

  • You can now add, edit and remove your team’s Q&A’s on the Tasytt dashboard. This…

Managing knowledge in a startup or a small…


We often think of knowledge as something that can be recorded in words, visualized and taught. This is called explicit knowledge.

  • Explicit Knowledge: The knowledge that has been recorded and structured into an organizational knowledge asset. Others can find it, reuse it, and collaborate on the knowledge. …


We’re uber proud of this feature, so we want to teach you more about Flows to help you make the most of them.

Flows are a series of steps delivered one at a time via Obie. They use spaced-repetition to increase knowledge retention. Create Flows on the Tasytt dashboard to…


Okay. So you’ve finally arrived (or are en route) to Chi-City for HR Tech 2016. Maybe you’re rummaging through your things for your business cards. Maybe you just dropped your bags in your hotel room. Maybe you’re on a break and wondering where you’ll grab din tonight. …
