    Kami Server Outage Resolved

    On Monday, April 20, 2020, from 10:45 AM until 7:20 PM Eastern Time (EDT), Kami users experienced a major incident as the result of a huge spike in demand for Kami’s services.  Kami server APIs were largely unresponsive for much of this period.    The Kami service is now stable again with all features functioning, including real-time synchronization of annotations, automatic saving of Google Drive changes (nb: manually saving will continue to work), and email notifications of annotations.

    New look, New Kami Theme

    As part of the recent company rebranding efforts from the name change “Notable PDF” to “Kami”, we have rolled out a new visual identity that covers all elements of the brand and product. The process is still ongoing, with some major and minor updates to the overall visual and messaging of the company. One of the recent changes is the user interface. It has a lighter scheme to go along with this new visual identity. The change is a major step away from the dark look that we have gotten accustomed. This change has been pending for quite a while.

We want to make sure the notifications aren’t distracting but provide useful information about things you care about, which is why we are releasing it in beta and have been slowly rolling it out across our users over the week to gather feedback. How can you get a notification? When a collaborator adds new annotations onto documents, you will automatically receive…
