Clarity 2.0 is our biggest update ever. This release is full of features that empower small groups, enable cross-group coordination, and help you onboard new contributors. We've streamlined the overall product design so you can bring your entire contributor community into Clarity.

Supercharging small groups
Pods & circles & guilds, oh my! The best contributor communities coordinate in small groups. In Clarity 2.0 you can have many groups in a single base. Each group has their own dedicated workspace, and they share a community-wide home screen, roadmap, and wiki for seamless cross-group coordination.
A Task Board for Every Group
Now each of your groups has its own task board. Tasks are automatically added to the board when you create them in any document or project within the group.
Every project has a doc in Clarity. Now, each group can manage its own project list, and you can see all the projects for your group in one place.
We use documents to take notes, gather research, and get on the same page. Now each group has its own space for docs.
Each group can manage bounty payouts on their own schedule. You no longer need to coordinate across groups to pay all contributors at the same time.
When we collaborate remotely, it can be hard to know what everyone is doing. Each group has an activity feed that shows what notes have been created by other team members. We'll be adding more types of activity to this screen in the near future.
If you have a document or link that is important to your group, but not important enough to go on the community home screen, you can pin it to the right sidebar for easy access to everyone in your group.
Each group can tailor their workflow to their needs. Customize the task statuses to create different stages for different kinds of work. If you have a development team that typically runs sprints, you can turn on the Cycles plug-in for a single group without affecting the others.
Seamless cross-group coordination
A workspace designed for emergence. The best contributor tools will maximize individual autonomy and embrace the resulting emergence. Clarity 2.0 introduces a shared roadmap where groups can team up on community-wide projects & goals. The Wiki’s tag structure enables bottoms-up knowledge organization & cross-group learning.
Multiple groups can now team up on a single project. When creating new tasks inside a shared project, simply decide which group is responsible for the task and it will be added to all the relevant task boards for the contributors in that group.
When a group creates a new project, it automatically shows up on the community roadmap. This means that each group can manage their own projects and the roadmap will always stay up to date.
Initiatives are now Goals
Create community-wide goals that have multiple supporting projects. This is perfect if your community uses an OKR-like goal structure. Now Goals sit inside your milestones which gives them focus, and helps prevent run-on initiatives that never end.
Your Community Library
We're more clearly separating the Wiki from notes. The Wiki is the long-term knowledge store for the community. Think of it like a library. When you tag something, you are adding it to that topic in the community library. The Wiki does not belong to any group—it's like your community's very own Wikipedia.
Cross Group Discovery
The Wiki can surface backlinks across all groups. This makes it possible for you to identify similar conversations that are happening across the community. The Wiki can also help you find prior work & research that may be relevant to your current project.
Effortlessly onboard contributors
Craft a contributor onboarding that is as permissionless and open as your DAO is. Put important resources front-and-center with the Base Homescreen, and enable new possibilities with token-based roles & permissions. Make your base public, or keep it a secret—whatever is right for conjuring scenius in your contributor community.
Base Home Screen
Your Community Bulletin Board
Your homescreen is the first thing every contributor sees when they join your base. You can put important onboarding instructions and resources front-and-center for them to see.
Showcase Important Documents
Surface important wiki articles, Seasonal memos, community guidelines, and more by pinning them to the home screen of your base.
Pin Any Web Page
Add anything you want to your home screen, even if it wasn't created in Clarity. You can use this to link to Mirror posts, Snapshot spaces, Etherscan, and other tools that are relevant to your contributor community.
Visible Groups & Roles
Groups & Roles were previously hidden behind a dropdown in the sidebar. Now they are displayed prominently in a tab across the top of the screen. This makes it easier for new contributors to find their tribe within your tribe.
Organize your home screen using Collections. Add as many headings as you need to make the home screen easy to navigate.
Create a private base that only token holders can join. Clarity can check to see if they have a specific token, or a combination of tokens before letting them join your base. This means you can enable self-serve onboarding to the right people without manually managing invites and permissions.
Add token allowlists to any document to enable access to token holders without sending a manual invite. This enables your entire community to get access to the right documents without asking for permission.
Token-based Roles & Permissions
By adding token allowlists to roles, you can allow anyone with the right tokens to self-assign a role in your base. This way, they can manage their own permissions—cutting down on the amount of role management required by community admins.
Support for Ethereum Layer 2 & ERC-1155
Clarity now supports Ethereum Layer 2's and testnets for token-gating and task rewards. All of Clarity's token-enabled features now support tokens & NFTs on Polygon, Gnosis Chain, Arbitrum One, Avalanche, Optimism, Rinkeby, Ropsten, and Goerli.
Accessibility through simplicity
Making DAOs more accessible starts with the tools we use to participate in them. Clarity 2.0 takes an advanced contributor toolkit and packs it into an easy-to-use & friendly interface. We’ve refreshed our design language, redesigned key screens, and rethought how you move around your base.
Simplified Task Board
We've radically simplified the kanban board interface. We've carefully removed every non-essential detail so you can focus on moving cards through your workflow.
New Layout for Task & Project Details
This redesign declutters the interface of project docs and task tickets. The task properties are now easier to scan, and subtasks are shown by default. When consecutive activity entries are made by the same person, they’re grouped to reduce clutter.
New Look & Feel
We’ve refreshed every screen in the product. From buttons, text, and colors to full page layouts.
The Roadmap is where new and existing contributors can find out what’s happening across the community. The new layout is easier to skim thanks to a refreshed layout and typography.
We've rethought every part of how you get around Clarity, with a focus on making it more accessible to new contributors.
Now there is a single search box for your workspace. Find anything with a click, or by pressing Cmd/Ctrl+P. The search field is front-and-center at the top of the screen, which makes it easy for new contributors to find something specific without knowing their way around Clarity.
We increased the number of recently opened documents Clarity remembers from 6 to 25. This list is now available even when the sidebar is hidden because it's in the new top bar. Recently opened docs also show in the Quick Search by default, making them accessible instantly via keyboard as well.
We reorganized the sidebar so that Favorites are at the bottom. So you can add as many favorites as you want without pushing important sidebar items off the screen.
9x faster load times
We've reduced the time it takes to load large bases from multiple seconds to less than one second.
