"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance."
tl;dr: ION ACTIONS, Runs are 10x faster at workcenters, bookmarked views, and much more!
On behalf of civilization, thank you for creating the technology that advances the boundaries of human possibility. In the spirit of continuously accelerating your manufacturing journey, we’re excited to highlight the latest improvements in ION!

Introducing a giant leap toward the programmable factory of the future: ION ACTIONS! Actions allow you to program logic (e.g. validation rules) into your factory using code, expanding engineering possibilities in your factory, programmatically. This is the start of something BIG.
Help us, help you, build ACTIONS!
If you’d like Actions deployed, please answer:
Some pre-built Actions ready to deploy upon request:
Do you operate “high-volume” work cells with multiple runs? Are you tired of slow performance and clicks to move between steps while working on multiple parts?
Introducing the beta release of our next-generation Runs, an order-of-magnitude level-up in performance (literally 10x faster)! We’ve built Runs orientated around the work center; enabling technicians to navigate seamlessly between runs. This update also introduced a new design language for ION – cleaner, faster, and more productive.
Have you ever spent 5+ minutes meticulously hand-crafting just the right slice of data, only to lose it with your cache refresh? Bruuuutal. It’s okay, all pain is an illusion.
ION now saves your filters, sorts, group by, and columns into a “smart” URL. You can favorite the page for later, or share it with others. It works on every collection view!
Check out this image ➡️ for ideas on favoriting the *curse* out of views. When sharing views with co-workers, you’ll want to highlight a word, then Ctrl+K (hyperlink existing text), the URLs are like ~2k+ characters long.
Need an entire team share approvals? Will somebody be out of office? You now have the ability to assign a Team (group of users) to:
The first-come team member is logged as the approver in transaction history. You can build Teams in Settings/Members/Teams. Team-based approvals will eventually deploy platform-wide!
The definition of insanity is creating a separate Issue ticket for every part on Issue. Now, you can list out as many parts in inventory on a single Issue as you’d like. Our next step on the Issue journey is assigning multiple runs from a batch to a single Issue. More to come!
We’ve made numerous tweaks to improve the speed and reliability of your work in ION. Below are the top five most improved transactions.
