Alongside a bunch of other new features (more on those later), we've also launched our latest version of 1:1s with some exciting features like:

  • 10 templates to start your 1:1s right
  • Create dynamic notes with formatting, bold text and headers
  • See trends and insights about your people

Other Features

  • You can click the Slack button in the activity feed and start chatting directly with your people
  • Improved squad management
  • More resources
  • Add support links to the dashboard
  • a bunch of improvements to our Slack bot
  • Our trends are now more complex and more insightful

New website, new profiles, and better sign-up pages!

One of the big pieces of feedback we here is that we could do a better job explaining who we are, and welcoming your team to Loopin.

That's why this sprint (and a few sprints before that) we've been hard at work improving a number of the key pages you see, for example:


A sparkling new website ✨

I'm really proud of the work the team has done on this, make sure to go check it out and let us know what you think!


Better Sign-up Pages

We've also massively improved our sign up and register pages, to help explain what Loopin is and make it clearer how you register and log in.


Other bugs and features πŸ›

We have a bunch of other onboarding improvements coming soon, but in the meantime we have been busy working on:

  • πŸ’β€β™€οΈ Better Profiles: click any face (including yours!) and choose "See profile" to see what we are talking about.
  • ⚑️ Onboarding messages in Slack ⚑️ Now, when you invite someone to Loopin, you receive a message straight into Slack as well as an email, making it even harder to miss.
  • A more feature-rich 1:1 tool (coming soon!)
  • More intelligent trends and insights about your team and company
  • More intelligent messages within Slack
  • Some fun improvements to coaching (check out "short reads")
  • A bunch of improvements to enable you to have a more consistent experience within Loopin

Introducing Coaching

From the beginning our north star has been this: Can we give you the right information about how your team truly is, to personalise your education experience and help you become a great leader.

We're excited to announce our next step into this vision with "coaching". You should see some brand new articles and videos in your feed, but also a revamped style and tags to make it easier to favourite and see content of different types.

But that's not all, we've also been working on:

  • 🏎️ Faster modals: You'll now be able to add/remove/update users quicker both when activating and when you need to add users to a team.
  • 🌱 Improved Onboarding: You're people will now get a much better introduction to Loopin, with personalised emails and an onboarding checklist that explains the first steps.
  • ✨ Better Leader Dashboards: The dashboard's for team leaders and organisational leader's have both been improved with a new interface and a lot more insights and functionality to make managing your team easier than ever.

The new onboarding checklist


Other bugs and features

We have a ton of new features in the works, including a new profile page for all the people in your organisation, better insights, and a completely revamped 1:1 experience that we're excited to show you.

Scalability and videos!

Screenshot 2022-05-16 at 09.49.13.png

With our growing list of customers (thank you! πŸ₯³) we've been hard at work making our app more robust and able to handle hundreds of employees at once, so you can get more of your team onto Loopin.

  • πŸ“Έ More video resources: We've added dozens more resources to Loopin which will be released over the coming weeks, including a bunch of short video coaching sessions.
  • πŸ“¬ Add better onboarding emails: Loopin now has a chain of onboarding emails that will introduce Loopin to your team, and explain some of our core features.
  • πŸ‘­ Scaling to more users: We want Loopin to be the place where enterprises go to understand their people, which is why we've spent a lot of time in the last few weeks making sure our system can handle hundreds of your people at the same time.

πŸ› Other bugs and features

We've also updated our website, with a new pricing page with a much more inclusive free plan (you can now use Loopin for free with 30 employees and no restrictions!).

You can check it out here!

A Bigger and Better Dashboard πŸš€

We're five days into May, and we have some spicy new features to show you hot off the press. Let's get into them:

  • πŸͺ£ Improved Activity Feed: You might notice your feed looks a little different, now in between your people's check-ins, you'll be able to see lots of different content tailored to you so you can get the most out of Loopin. Think of this as your one stop social hub for your company.
  • πŸ’¬ Improved 1:1s: To say we've improved 1:1s would be the understatement of the century. We now give you the tools to add notes, save 1:1s, and see trends for your employees all within our 1:1 wizard.
  • πŸš€ Faster and better: We've spent a lot of time over the last month making the app work faster for larger companies, including a lot of onboarding improvements to make it even easier to get your whole organisation on Loopin.

  • Team reports within Slack

  • A new team and organisation dashboard
  • Improvements to the insights tab, with more data visible

New Month, New Loopin ✨

Screenshot 2022-03-02 at 10.38.16.png

Happy March everyone! The last few months have been a whirlwind as we re-wrote the entire product from scratch, so that we can deliver to you the best possible experience.

We are so excited to share with you what we've been working on in the last few months:

  • πŸ”’ 1-Click Slack Authentication: Forget passwords, you can now login to Loopin through Slack in just one-click.
  • 🚌 Simplified Onboarding: What used to be a multi-step wizard has now been replaced with one step, to enable your whole team to get onto Loopin faster.
  • 🌍 We've gone global: From today, you'll be able to download Loopin directly from the app store and can feel secure knowing that Loopin has been vetted by Slack.
  • πŸ‰ Squads are now Teams: We've swapped our terminology so that 'squads' are now 'teams', and 'core squads' are now 'departments', to make it even clearer how our grouping system works.
  • 🌱 Brand-spanking new dashboard: Our dashboard has been completed re-vamped into a timeline of all the information you need to see on a daily basis. Right now, it only displays the check-ins of the people in your teams, but in the next few weeks we're hoping to add more and more unique content and insights into this framework.
  • πŸ’… Countless UI Improvements: We've spent a lot of time improving the look and feel of Loopin across the board; doing everything from re-arranging whole pages, re-designing each page to have a consistent brand, to adding helpful tooltips across our biggest features.

New Check-in Wizard

It wouldn't be a Loopin update without at least once massive new feature, and whilst there are a few in this release, I wanted to take a second to highlight our new check-in wizard that allows you to quickly add how you are feeling in a few taps.


One last word from us πŸ‘‹

As we go live on the Slack app store, its important to us that we take a moment to thank you, the leaders and forward-thinking companies that saw our vision and helped us get to this position with your support, ideas, and feedback.

Thank you to all our beta customers - We're so excited to keep pushing Loopin forward with you ✨

Squad Improvements, Downloadable Reports, and Streaks

Happy New Year everyone! It's been a while since you heard from us, but we've been quietly chipping away at a number of big features that we're so excited to share with you.

  • πŸ’¬ 1:1 Catchups: There is now a 1:1 catchup tab on each squad, allowing you to see how your team is doing and keep track of any issues or concerns.
  • πŸ‰ Squad Improvements: Squads now have a overview page, like a dashboard for an individual squad and a lot of little improvements to help you manage your teams and engage with each other more effectively.
  • πŸ“Š Slack Insights: We are Slack first product, and are so excited to share a buffet of feature improvements so you can see how your team is using Loopin without ever leaving Slack.

  • 🌟 Streaks: Streaks are a little way to keep track of how you are using Loopin, and to give you a fun little insight into how you use Loopin.
  • πŸ’³ Billing: We now have billing set-up and have partnered with Stripe. Don't worry though, if you are an existing customer nothing will change for you. It just allows us to go live on the Slack app store.

Coming Soon πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

That was a bit of a doozy, but now that Christmas is out of the way, you can expect to see more regular updates to Loopin - including a new-look across the product ✨

Better Resources, Insights V2 and anonymity

Wow, it's been a busy couple of weeks! We're really pumped to let you see our next suite of features:

  • πŸ‘Έ Your profile: You now have a personal profile page, which whilst sparse at the moment will be the place where you manage yourself within Loopin.

  • πŸ–ΌοΈ Improved Resources: Our resources have had a bit of upgrade, take a look at our full colour images.
  • 🀯 Insights Upgrade: Insights have been massively updated, so you now have clearer emotion stats and can see a new trending arrow to compare your stats across different time periods.
  • πŸ“Š Trending Analytics: We're really excited for this! Now, using your check-in data we can make predictions about the wellbeing of your organization and fix any issues before they become bigger problems. Expect to see more insights in future!

Work in Progress

We're also hard at work finishing two new features we are really excited about:

  • πŸ’° Adding Billing: As we get closer to publishing Loopin on Slack, we've been working on the ability to manage your billing details within the app. Rest easy if you're an enterprise, nothing will change for you.
  • Enabling Microsoft Teams: We want Loopin to work for everyone, which is why we are hard at work building a Microsoft Teams app - if you'd like to be part of the trial for this, let us know.

Bugs

Alongside general copy fixes, we've also fixed a big one! We've fixed a bug where occasionally you would receive the same messages twice - apologies if you saw this, it should now be fixed!

Resources, onboarding and much more! 🌟
