Release Update: Hudu

This release coming March 22, 2022

Happy March!

In this new version of Hudu, our biggest new features are a revamped permissions system with impersonation capabilities, single expirations, and a cool new update for the password generator.

Want to allow a client to manage their own documentation? Impersonate a lower level user to make sure they only have access to what you want them to see? Use a more memorable password generator? Change what categories of documentation a particular user can see? Then, this update is for you 🙂

Full Release Notes

  • New Permissions System
    • Introduces ability to switch permission style to Allow List. Allow List allows you to add clients or users in to the Hudu account that can only see/access the companies that you allow them to access (instead of the inverse, the Deny List, where they see all companies by default, with optional restrictions)
    • Remove abilities from users in groups (ability to share, ability to access passwords, and more!)
    • New Bulk-Add Users to Groups
    • New Layout for Permissions
    • Change what asset layouts or categories a user can see/access
    • Impersonation Feature for Admins, so they can easily see what a user has access to, and what Hudu looks like for them.
  • Single Expirations
    • Send out alerts that apply to a single expiration, instead of a list (that’s still an option though!)
  • Additional Expiration Changes
    • Ability to specify a One-Time Expiration, or trigger Everyday (the previous default)
    • Ability to include archived objects in alerts
