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.

Get your team onboard in a snap ✨
As the number of new teams using Popwork keeps growing, we felt we had to refresh the way managers get started with Popwork.
Now, you can get your team onboard autonomously in a few minutes following a 3-steps onboarding process.
You should also feel more supported along the way as we have added contextual guidance and explanations.
Thumbmail onboarding@2x
For instance, you are now offered to preview a check-in or get answers to the most frequent questions while onboarding your team.
We’ll keep improving this first step of the Popwork journey on a continuous basis so we would love to hear your feedback in the chat!

Check-in answers are conversation starters.
You can now comment and react to any check-in answers in a single click. It becomes easier to give instantaneous feedback and prepare your 1:1 conversations.

Follow up with threads 🔥
Preparing and following up on one-to-one conversations can be time-consuming and complex. It should be simple and fast when using Popwork.
We are super excited to introduce Threads and Templates
  • Using Templates, it becomes easy to create an agenda or to take note of next steps.
  • Threads make commenting, answering or following up straight forward.

In the process, we also solved an annoying bug which was crashing the app when copying content from one note to another.
We want to make Threads and Templates a powerful tool for you: share your feedback and ideas with us!

Better view on historic answers 👀
Popwork helps build a shared memory between managers and team members.
To help you navigate through historic data, we are introducing Views, a new way to deep dive on answers to a specific question.
Understanding one’s mood evolution over the past weeks or identifying the most significant achievements over the past months becomes easy.
Better view on historic answers
This is a first step towards giving you more insights from check-in answers week after week.
What more would you like to see in Views? Let us know!

Revamped answer feed ✨
Scanning check-in answers becomes faster and simpler.
Here are a few improvements we brought to the check-in feed:
  • New date spacers make it easier to differentiate check-ins and see when they are from
  • Each answer card also shows the asked question for more clarity
We also fixed a bug which was preventing some users from properly loading historic answers on small desktop devices.
Hope you like it!

Editing check-ins after submission ✍
“Oh, I forgot to mention this achievement!” or “Mmm, maybe I should have phrased this challenge a bit differently…”
Everyone has had this thought after sending a check-in and it’s all right. It shouldn’t be a big deal to forget something or to have afterthoughts after submitting a check-in.
This is why we have just released a new feature enabling team members to edit a check-in for a period of 24h after submission ✨
Team members can access this feature from the workspace at the top of the check-in feed. Once updated, the new answer is instantly reflected in the check-in feed. No worries, this will not bother managers with email notifications.
We hope you will like it! Please let us know your feedback in the chat.
