What is Buildxact Labs?

Buildxact Labs gives you the opportunity to try new features that we're working on. They're not yet live, which means they're not always complete or functioning perfectly, so it's an opt in choice. Try it out and, if you like, give us feedback on your experience.

To find Labs, go to the Explore (1) section, you'll see Labs (2) in the pop out menu. When you click on Labs, you'll see a list of in-development features that you can opt into by turning on the toggle setting (3).
