As promised earlier, we've made a brand new homepage with your action items and upcoming 1-on-1 meetings together in the same page. This also includes renaming of our previously named "Superlist" to a simple "Action Items".
🏠 Brand New Homepage ✨
🏠 Redesigned 1-on-1 cards
We just rolled out a fresh 1-on-1 listing page with new cards. This is part of of a new (and relevant) homepage where actions and events will be combined. Expect this page to get lot more updates!
✉️ Refreshing new emails ✨
We've improved the reminder emails to have lot more relevant content that is useful and gives a sneak peak before you come to the product.
Also, we removed the reminders to add action items post 1-on-1 as we felt it was too spammy.
🎯 Tracking Productivity & Performance
To manage effectively it is critical to understand how employees perceive their productivity and how managers see their performance. This forms a bedrock of almost all 1:1 conversations.
To support this, we've rolled out a feature to track Performance and Productivity. Directs share productivity with their managers, while managers record performance privately (won't be shared with anyone).
⏰ Action Item Reminders
I easily forget stuff. And it is embarrassing when I go to a 1-on-1 with my direct report and see that I didn't complete the action items discussed. So we built reminders!
You can set a reminder by clicking on the assignment icon next to the name of the person and choose the date/time.
And get a neat notification in your slack:
All 1-on-1s auto-added, invite later
If you are using Peoplebox with few of your direct reports and have been holding off because you don't want to invite them - we've made it easy now.
The system scans and adds all your 1-on-1s automatically (without inviting the other person). You can choose who they are (direct report or a manager) and start writing notes - and optionally invite them.
⚡ Realtime collaboration for remote teams
We've been building this for sometime and the timing seemed right to release this. Considering the threat of COVID-19 around us, more teams are working remotely and more managers are doing 1-on-1s via Calls/Zoom.
While working remotely, both Manager and Direct reports would want to add talking points and agendas simultaneously. We've made it really easy for teams to collaborate while during their 1-on-1s with real-time collaboration. Both can add talking points, notes and action items realtime.
Stay safe, stay indoors. #CoronaVirusOutbreak
💼 Archive your 1:1s
If you add an 1-on-1 by mistake you can now archive them very easily.
🖱️ Easily look at your previous 1-on-1s
We've made it extremely easy for you to reflect back on the previous 1-on-1s and find out if you missed to discuss something.
Just. Scroll. Down! 😄
