Release Description#

This release collects a very large number of changes on both the front-end and the back-end.
It introduces numerous features and almost completely changes the code previously used in Explore.

Dev Stuff ๐Ÿ’ป#


Major changes to the entire project file and folder structure in the front-end.
Changes to the whole UI to align it with new requests.
Modification of the structure of the internal states of the project, with a complete rewrite of all the data logics and graphQl calls for the whole project.


GraphQl moved from .net to node with storage migration on Elasticsearch.
The Matchy engine rewritten in .net with scalable and horizontal architecture.
RabbitMQ (for exchanging messages between back-end services) and Docker Swarm were also introduced.


The placeholder structure of the People feature has been added.
This means that at the moment it is possible to view the new feature but with placeholder data that does not reflect what will be seen in the release phase.
People is present within the company modal:
View the staff of a company; save an employee as a favorite or hide him; view favorite or hidden employees.
Overview page:
Check all the favourite people in your project; manage the favourites

Codes management#

Front-end NACE codes will always be shown with a "." after the second digit, with the standard structure "xx.xx".
It is not possible anymore to insert NACE like "xxxx" but only like "xx.xx" in the new creation form.

Dictionary Imports#

It is possible to import only NAICS and NACE

Companies Table#

By inserting filters in the table (company name, city), the respective column labels are colored with the secondary color.
It is thus easier to notice that there is an active filter.


Inverted the eye icons to hide or show. Now the action of hiding or show a company or a person is more clear.
