Automated Program Reminders
Increase engagement by getting the right messages to your teams at the right times. Our new program reminders configurability allows you to dial in program reminders to help team members stay on track. Configure key dates, auto triggers, and more.
Conversations New Customization Features
Conversations are now more flexible. Cut through the clutter and build confidence internally with our latest updates to Conversations. Move from one-size-fits-all company wide conversations, to deploying different conversations for different segments of your company. Companies can now setup and deploy conversations customized for new hires, different geographies, business units, or a specific function.
Setup performance workflows with Conversations
Companies can setup traditional performance evaluation workflows with Conversations. Select when a manager can share the conversation, for use cases such as waiting after calibration. Select when a direct report's conversation should be locked beforehand (for use cases like completion of a self-assessment).
Conversations will be locked at the end of the cycle or when users share their conversations—whichever comes first.
Targeted Slack Notifications
Simplify your communications with our new Slack Integration v2 which allows you to toggle where your messages go. Choose between sending your messages to either email or Slack.
