Hi hotgluers!

Welcome to our monthly hotglue melt - we have got some awesome updates to share!

Product Updates 🚀

New bi-directional flows 🔃

We're excited to announce a new way to set up your flows. Instead of connecting to "sources" or "targets," your users can now connect to any available "connector" in the dashboard and run jobs both ways for that tenant.

Bi-directional flows are enabled by default for new users. Let us know if you're already using hotglue and want to try out these new flows.

Subtenants in the widget 🤝

Also released this past month, you can now create multiple connections to the same connector using "subtenants." This can be used for customers with multiple shops, or parent companies with multiple business entities.

You can turn on subtenants in the widget settings.
