Data security is our priority

All Onehub Communication Is Secured Over HTTPSThere are some things you should feel safe in assuming. When you use Onehub, for instance, you are right to assume that keeping your data safe is our top priority, because it is.

But with news of another hack, this time exposing the personal information of up to 14 million federal workers, we thought it would be a good time to re-state the fact that keeping your data safe is our top priority.

We recently put together a brief primer on Onehub’s security measures, should you wish to re-acquaint yourself with them.

Even Better Document Previews

Document previews are one of the most important features of Onehub. We have one of the best document previewing experiences around, but that didn’t stop us from making it even better. Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of our brand new document previewer.

PDF.js

Our new previewer is HTML-based, rather than Flash-based. This not only means that you no longer need to have Flash installed but, crucially, you can now view any Onehub preview from your mobile devices. In addition, this allowed us to implement accurate, text-based searching of your documents directly from the preview. As a side benefit, selecting/copying/pasting text is easier now as well. On top of these technical improvements, we also revamped the interface and increased the fidelity for all previews. Here is a full list of the improvements you can expect from the new Onehub previews:

  • HTML-based
  • Mobile-friendly previews
  • Full-text search from your previews
  • Higher fidelity previews
  • Improved design
  • Automatic zooming
  • Jump to a specific page in your preview
  • Support for native browser full screen modes

The new Onehub previewer puts us ahead of the curve and we hope it delights our customers as well. If you have any feedback, tweet us @onehub or email us at support@onehub.com.

Q – How did you get into long distance running? 
A – About 9 years ago, a year after graduating high school, I started to develop a (somewhat) regular fitness routine. Lifting weights and strength training were my focus, but I would add in about 20 to 30 minutes of pavement or treadmill running a few times a week.

For several years, I would run the same distance of about 3 to 4 miles each time. It wasn’t until about the end of 2011 that I began to push my distance further. I started tracking my runs with a smart phone app that stores various bits of data such as distance, duration, mile times, altitude, calories, etc. I would use the data as motivation to push myself on subsequent runs.

In the fall of 2012 when I moved to Seattle, I discovered some great areas for running. I spent a lot of time improving my distance by running around Green Lake as well as areas of the Burke Gilman Trail. I also did some research on midsole running techniques, proper footwear, and nutrition. By 2013, I was comfortable running 8 to 10 miles with an average mile time of about 8 minutes.

Organizations, regardless of their size or type, create, share, and collaborate on these files to perform their core operations.
