Enable your team members to use Popwork with their teams 🏄
new
Hi folks 👋
We’re building on the admin role with new features.
Admins are now able to greenlight the creation of a team requested by a team member. This enables new managers to easily adopt Popwork while letting the admin in control.
Request manager role
Admins are notified by emails for each new request and all requests can be found in Settings > Teams.
Over time, admins will have all the tools they need to properly manage their account: user management, in-app billing and global engagement metrics.
Other improvements:
  • Added possibility to delete team as a manager
  • Fixed loading issue when a user has no team
  • Fixed a bug preventing iOS users to add comments

Introducing the admin role with global engagement metrics 📊
new
Hi there 👋
Today we’re making things simpler for organizations using Popwork across several teams by introducing a new Admin role.
More and more organizations are using Popwork for hundreds of team members making the addition of an admin role a necessity! Over the coming weeks, admins will gain access to the tools they need to properly manage their account: user management, in-app billing and global engagement metrics.
To start with, we’ve added admin access to global engagement metrics.
My organization
Admins can now access global engagement metrics for their organization. All the info shared between managers and team members in Popwork stays absolutely confidential - this will never change. What's new is that admins can now access aggregated values for mood and workload at their organization level.
To access these insights, admins need to go to Dashboard and select the
My organization
level in the top right drop-down menu.
We will continue to add new features to the Admin role to give them all the tools they need to manage their Popwork account smoothly. Next in line are our user management interface and in-app access to your Popwork subscription and invoices.
Other improvement:
  • Fixed issue preventing new manager to complete their onboarding

Even more mood and workload insights! 🧑‍🔬
new
improved
We've just added new insights to the Popwork manager dashboard!
Workload evolution over the past 3 months 🏋️
First, we've added the chart of your team's workload over the past three months. This will enable you to instantly gauge how your team has been feeling on this topic.
To see the
Workload satisfaction
chart, simply go to your team's
Dashboard
.
Workload satisfaction
Most selected mood answers 🌈
On top of this, we've added a chart of the most selected mood answers. This enables managers to easily visualize which words have been chosen by their teams over the last 3 months to define their current mood.
Wether positive or negative, this gives managers the insight they need to understand qualitatively how their team members are really feeling. Managers don't need to take the same actions when their teams are stressed, frustrated or disappointed and this is why we've made it easy to see.
Most selected answers
Other improvements:
  • Fixed a bug preventing some email reminders to be sent
  • Fixed a bug affecting the display of rituals in the timeline and side menu notifications
  • Fixed a translation issue on check-in starting page
  • Fixed a bug preventing the display of some workload answers

Managers can now create new teams 🧙‍♀️
new
Managers can now create new teams on Popwork, for themselves or for their team members.
png_20220701_104410_0000
Creating a new team for oneself 🪄
Some managers lead teams made of different roles and may want to split their team in several teams in Popwork.
Each team can have their own check-in and dashboard.
To create a new team, go to Settings > Teams and click on Create Team. Name the team and assign yourself as the manager. Voila.
Creating a team for a team member 🔮
Managers also manage managers. To make it easier to use Popwork in this situation, managers can now create a team for any of their team members. The team member for whom a team has been created is notified by email and can then onboard their own team on Popwork.
To create a new team, go to Settings > Teams and click on Create Team. Name it and then choose the person for whom you 're creating the team. That's it.
Other improvements
:
  • fixed bug preventing one-off question to be deleted
  • fixed bugs on check-in question edition, reordering and deletion
  • automatically send updated check-in questions to team member workspaces
  • made icons related to question edition more explicit

Customize the check-in questions for your team! 🧑‍🎨
new
Hi guys,
Really happy to launch a major new feature on Popwork today: managers can now customize the check-in questions for their teams! 🧑‍🎨
flex-content-hero
Adapting the Popwork template ⚙️
If you feel the Popwork template is the right one for your team but simply want to rephrase the way questions are asked to make them more personal or suited to your team, this is now possible.
To do so, go into
Settings > Rituals
and select the
“1:1 check-in” ritual
. You can now click on any question - except the mood and workload questions - to edit the way the question is asked.
Make your changes, save them, check what the resulting check-in looks like and you’re done. The next check-ins for your team will be your own custom version.
flex-content-1
Adding and deleting questions 🙋
It’s possible to go further into the customization of check-ins for your team and to choose to add and delete questions. The only questions that cannot be removed are the mood questions. This is because we believe no check-in or 1:1 conversation can be successful without these.
To add questions to your check-in template, simply go to
Settings > Rituals
and select the
“1:1 check-in” ritual
. To write a new question, click on the
“Add question”
button and write your question.
flex-content-2
In the
Advanced options
, you have the possibility to add a
placeholder text
if you want the answer text field to be pre-populated with content.
Furthermore, you also have the option to apply a
"once a month"
frequency to questions. These questions will only be asked in the first week of the month. Note that if the check-in of the first week of the month is missed, this once-a-month question will be asked again in the following check-ins until answered.
Finally, if you wish to delete a question, simply click on the question and then on the
Delete button
.
Other improvements:
  • Adapted the manager dashboard to reflect the change in the mood question (mood every week and workload once a month) with the deprecation of the satisfaction metric
  • Fixed generation of first check-in after adding a new team member from Settings
  • Fixed the bell notification which was displayed on team members even when there were no check-in to complete soon
  • Fixed the last priorities suggestions during the check-in which were showing last achievements instead
  • Fixed broken link in the Priorities question’s helper
  • Fixed name display in profile menu which was causing accessibility issues for long names
  • Fixed scroll bar UI

🗓 Answer missed and upcoming check-ins
new
In real life, one-to-one meetings are often moved by a day or two because one is out of office, or the other has a super important client meeting, and that’s ok.
This is why we are introducing an important change to make answering check-ins much more flexible. It’s now possible to complete a check-in ahead of time or after its due date.
flex window
This being said, we are keeping the “check-in window” and reminders which help ritualize one-to-one meetings. However, the ability to answer check-ins ahead of time or late makes the Popwork frictionless and better fitted into your flow of work.
How to answer a missed check-in?
To complete a missed check-in, team members simply have to click on
Complete late
on the corresponding check-in card.
Missed
How to answer a check-in in advance?
To start answering the next check-in in advance, team members will need to click on
Prepare
on the upcoming check-in card. Check-in answers are automatically saved as a draft after each step and it is even possible to share the check-in in advance.
Upcoming
Other improvements:
  • Added the check-in questions to be answered by the team member on the ritual card
  • Added a notification icon in the menu to help team members spot when a check-in is due
  • Improved the ritual card layout to help better differentiate sections and know who needs to do what
  • Added a rule to automatically remove expired and uncompleted rituals to free up timelines from empty ritual cards
  • Added the name of labels on the check-in progress bar
  • Added visual confirmation of saved content in the check-in panel header
