What's New in Runn - July '21

Learn about our backend migration to the Hasura GraphQL engine, the ability to export detailed and grouped reports, and our improved multi-select mode.

This past couple of months our developers have been working on a bunch of backend upgrades to improve the performance of Runn. In these release notes we'll introduce the impressive changes they've made and some other smaller announcements.

As always, if you have any questions or comments about these newest features you can always reach out to us through the in-app chat or emailing

Performance Upgrades

Our developers have been hard at work migrating the entire Runn backend to use Hasura GraphQL Engine.

This makes it easier to handle and serve your real-time data in Runn and has had a big impact on performance, especially if you are managing a lot of people and projects in Runn - we’ve measured speed boosts of up to 200% on the planner and reports!

Note: You can view the uptime status of our systems at

Export Detailed and Grouped Reports

Extract the data you need for reporting on your projects, people, and groups.

View Hours in Multi Select Mode

Our multi select mode is useful for performing an action to multiple assignments at a time, including transferring, moving, and deleting your assignments.

Now, you can see the number of assignments and total hours you have multi selected so you have a better understanding of what you are dealing with.

Have Your Say: We're Looking for Beta Testers

Spoiler alert - we're currently scoping out these two major updates and want YOUR input:

  • Weekend support - The ability to schedule assignments in the weekend
  • Supercharged search and filtering - The ability to search for and filter your people and projects with more options and advanced combinations

If either or both of these sound interesting to you, let us know!
