KaiNexus Valentines for Your Team!

Posted by Brittany Currier

Feb 12, 2021 12:02:35 PM

Valentine's Day is this weekend, and in times like these, I think we should take every opportunity to celebrate life and love on the people around us. This morning I presented a batch of lovingly crafted valentines to my KaiNexus coworkers on our weekly Zoom call, complete with pictures their charming faces and a cheesy love song playing in the background. Then I thought that perhaps you all would like to show some love to your KaiNexus users, too - so I'm sharing them here.

Parent: A Story of Nesting Items in KaiNexus

Posted by Ryan Rippey

Sep 3, 2020 9:30:00 AM

When working with your items in KaiNexus, you will often discover that the level of effort on certain Projects or Improvements would be best executed by breaking them down into smaller units of work.

For example:

For simple bottom-up Improvement, you may be working on an Improvement that requires you to delegate Tasks to individuals and the Tasks would be tied to the completion of that Improvement. For top-down project management, you may have a long-term/ongoing multi-tiered project structure that you wish to visualize in a hierarchical manner. For strategy deployment, you may want to have all of your project and improvement work roll up to a top-level strategic pillar. Whatever your use case, all of this mapping in KaiNexus is determined by nesting items, which is done using an item’s Parent field.

Let’s take a deeper dive into the functionality and possibilities of this Parent field:

Upcoming Changes to KaiNexus Workflow Team Permissions

Posted by Maggie Millard

Jul 21, 2020 9:55:59 AM

The Product team here at KaiNexus is driven by the desire to continuously improve our software - and our best source of ideas for improvement comes from YOU, our customers. Whenever you submit an improvement idea for us via the web or through a person on our team, it’s immediately logged for our Product team to review and consider in future development plans.

Sometimes, we hear the same idea from a bunch of you - and that’s when it’s immediately clear that there’s a no-brainer opportunity to make KaiNexus better, and we have to jump on it.

For example, a lot of you have reached out lately about how a Facilitator is able to delete a Project. We originally thought that more flexibility is better - but when you all started pointing out how you can have these elaborate, long-term, complex Projects that someone can delete willy-nilly, that’s a serious problem… and, you’re right!

The need to delete an item in KaiNexus is rare, because generally, you want to preserve the record of that item and who submitted it even if you don’t intend to implement it. In most cases, the correct action is to archive the item, rather than to delete it.

This prompted us to take a look at how permissions work in KaiNexus, and we found several related areas to improve too, including who can edit Project due dates and what items different people are allowed to nest. In this post I’ll go into the nitty gritty details of how these changes impact different types of Workflows.

Let’s take a deeper dive into each of these View Types and where you can take advantage of them in the system.

How People are Using the New KaiNexus API

Posted by Matt Banna

Jul 9, 2020 10:25:01 AM

As we announced at our 2019 KaiNexicon Conference, KaiNexus made 2020 the Year of Mobile and API. Since then, we’ve made huge jumps in both of these areas.

My favorite part about all these new API enhancements is seeing how our customers utilize them to connect KaiNexus to other integral parts of their business. KaiNexus handles all of their improvement work - but they often need this work to integrate with other systems. 

To make this easier, the KaiNexus API can now:
