Take private notes 📝
You can now write private notes to keep in mind things you may not want to share.
When writing a private note, you can format your notes using basic but useful formatting options such as:
  • Bold and italic
  • Add bullet points (“-” + Enter)
  • Indent (Tab) or unindent (Maj + Tab)
  • Paste links and images
To keep things in context, you can also drag and drop check-in answers in private notes.
Private notes are ordered by creation date and can be edited or deleted at any time.

Follow your team’s mood more closely 🌈
We’ve made improvements to how Popwork asks the mood question and shows results.
It’s even easier for team members to share their mood than before: they can choose up to two emojis and add a comment.
Adding plain words on top of emojis makes it easier for team members to choose the right emoji and easier for managers to understand how they are feeling about the past week.
Managers can now follow their team's mood more closely thanks to an overview of their team’s current mood (answer to the weekly check-in template) as well as averages for work and workload satisfaction (answers to the monthly step-back template).
Mood overview
All these insights can be found in the recently added team dashboard.

Team dashboard, finally 📈
We have just added a homepage for managers on Popwork... Now, managers will land on their team dashboard when they log in.
To start with, this team dashboard will give managers a clear view on (i) the actions they have to take, (ii) their team’s rituals and (iii) some useful management resources.
Soon, we’ll be adding an insightful overview of your team’s mood.
Team dashboard
Please check it out! We would love to hear your feedback.

Settings to manage your team members and rituals 📅
Managers can now manage your team members and rituals from their Team settings. This is a first step toward giving managers more control over their team set-up.

We also added a My account section allowing users to edit their profile details including their name, email and profile picture.

Ask a recurring or one-off custom question 💡
Managers can now make the custom question permanent and include it in all upcoming check-ins. This can be useful if they need to collect specific inputs or feedback in every check-in.
For managers who you prefer to ask out of the box questions from time to time, we’ve also improved the way ad hoc questions work. Simply add your question and it will be included in the next check-in of all your team members.
If you are short of inspiration, check our list of 25 questions to ask your team ;)
Go now to Team settings > Rituals to add one!

Comment on any item 💬
You can now comment on any check-in answer, agenda item or next step.
This makes it easy to provide instant feedback or ask a question on any content shared in Popwork.

Three-steps workflow for your 1:1 meetings 🤩
We're launching one of the most exciting changes we've pushed to date: a new Popwork workflow for one-to-one meetings.
We’ve heard your feedback and decided to design a new workflow and workspace to make one-to-one meetings better prepared, more focused and more efficient than ever. With one key design principle: simplicity.
To drive great one-to-one meetings, simply follow Popwork's new three-steps workflow:
  1. Check-in: team members answer questions before the meeting (no change here)
  2. Agenda: managers receive a suggested agenda for the discussion and can edit it
  3. Next steps: managers and teams are invited to define next steps after the meeting
To support this new workflow, the Popwork workspace has also been redesigned in a single feed for more clarity and guidance.
We believe that these are major improvements so we would love to hear your feedback!
If you need any help, reach out in the chat or check the dedicated section in the help center. If you are curious about what we’re building next, check our product roadmap.

Checking in outside of schedule ⚡
“Oh ****, it’s too late to complete my check-in!” or “Let’s do our 1-1 tomorrow instead of Friday, can you share your check-in?”
Sounds familiar? It’s not a dead end anymore.
Managers can now send a check-in request outside of 1-1 schedule! Simply go to your team member’s profile and press
Send check-in now
It should prove useful when a check-in window is missed or whenever you decide to move a 1-to-1 meeting ;)

Check-in templates 🎁
We’re starting to roll out this month something we’ve been working on for quite a while: check-in templates!
Templates will enable you to choose the check-in rituals that best fit your team.
To start with, we’re adding a monthly step-back template to help you reflect on the past month and plan for the next one.
This can be a great complement to the weekly check-ins you’re already using.
Ping us now in the chat if you like to try it with your team!
Instant access to past answers 💡
If you often have the blank sheet syndrome when checking in, you will love this new feature!
It’s now easy to access past answers while checking in. For instance, scan your past priorities when answering the achievements question.
Browse your historic answers right from your check-in screen, only one click needed. If you feel you need to access your entire workspace during your check-in, just click on the new quick access link.
Give it a try in your next check-in! We would love to hear your feedback.

In the process, we also fixed a bug which was preventing some users to open inline pictures properly.
