Whoo, it's been a little while since one of these. We've been shipping on the regular, but with lots of other things going on (to be revealed soon!) our updates have taken a back seat.
Share a work in progress check-in
Our customers have regularly asked for easier ways to run peer feedback as part of a check-in. While a full '360 review suite' is a little way off for us, we agree that it should be easy to grab quick thoughts using your Progression check-in.
So you can now download your check-in at any point in its lifetime as a CSV file, to share in your tool of choice with your people of choice.
Employees: download at the very start to share alongside or flesh out your answers
Managers: download alongside your review to gather more data
Either employees or managers: download during a joint review to add other notes into your final answers
This is also useful if you want to merge two check-ins together - just download one and copy-paste the answers into the other.
This is the first of many check-in improvements to come. Please keep giving us feedback on what you need, it really helps!
It's now way easier to delete check-ins you don't need
Accidentally started an extra check-in, or want to clear out an old incomplete check-in? You now can delete from your homepage or any list of check-ins. Just click on the three dot (•••) overflow menu to find the option.
Remove unused skill levels
It's easy to create too many skill levels then realise you didn't need some of them. You can now remove levels of a skill after the fact, keeping your skills nice and streamlined. Just beware, removing a skill level will also remove it from any positions or teams you've used it in.
We're starting to roll out rich text across the app. This will gradually get to every part of your framework (with Bold, Underline, Italic and Links being the first port of call), but for now you can add rich text elements to any example within a skill. Any feedback on where to add rich text next is very welcome.
Massive simplification of skill examples
Most of this work is behind the scenes, but we've made examples much simpler. They're now a single field with no 'behaviour tag', which we now recognise was surplus to requirements for 90% of people. As a result we've been able to make the editing experience smoother, and reduced the complexity of a skill. Hooray for simple!
Other fun things
- When you start your trial, we now ask upfront what team you want to set up, and create it for you
- You can now choose a framework on our website and one-click use it when you get going! Head to progressionapp.com/library to browse our frameworks and collections.
- Less weird scroll behaviour on the team view
- Fixed some over-enthusiastic autosave page locking in check-ins
- Fixed ordering of skills in a check-in
- Lots of other small but annoying bugs
