What is Buildxact Labs?

Buildxact Labs gives you the opportunity to try new features that we are working on but are not quite ready to go live. This means they are not always perfect or complete, which is why you can opt in to try it out and even provide feedback if you like.

In the Explore (1) section you will be able to see Labs (2) in the pop out menu. This will show you a list of in development features that you can opt into using by turning on the toggle setting (3).
