We are constantly giving dignity to Dignify! Here is a place for us to tell you what we have been up to.
September 18th, 2017 Revamped Check-Ins!
Do normal Check-Ins take too long? Do you find yourself wishing you could skip a particular topic? Are Check-In templates confusing to you? If you answered YES to any of these questions, you'll love our changes to Check-Ins:
Much of the feedback we receive about Check-Ins is that they simply take too much time. We've taken this feedback into account and we're happy to introduce the Express Check-In. An Express Check-In is simply a Check-In that has been dramatically shortened. You'll now talk about one of your Dignity traits, one of your DOs, and one of your DON'Ts (you'll still be presented with any custom topics setup by your dignify administrators).
Like the Express Check-Ins, our Standard Check-Ins have also been shortened. You'll now be asked to complete two Dignity traits, two DOs, and two DON'Ts (you'll still be presented with any custom topics setup by your dignify administrators).
Another bit of feedback we receive is about repetition - people are tired of talking about the same things during every Check-In, or sometimes topics aren't relevant for the purpose of a particular Check-In. Many Check-In topics will now allow you to "swap" the topic with another one. For example, each person has 5 Dignity Traits - during an Express Check-In, you'll only be asked about one of those traits. If you'd prefer to discuss a different trait, simply "swap" it out!
Sometimes you're checking-in with someone for a specific purpose and your administrator has setup specific topics for you to discuss with one another. In instances like these, it may not always make sense to spend time reviewing your Dignity traits or your DOs & DON'Ts. Entire sections of the Check-In process are now skippable. You can now jump ahead to the topics you really need to discuss.
Simplified Check-In Center
The Check-In Center (where you manage your in-progress, completed and archived Check-Ins) has been consolidated into a single list. Simple controls now toggle the types of Check-Ins you see in the list, instead of having separate pages for each.
Improved Customized Topics
We've replaced the "Check-In Template" functionality with a simpler, more intuitive interface for setting up topics that apply to specific users, groups, locations and/or departments.
Do you often forget to have regular Check-Ins with key members of your team? You or your administator can now setup a schedule so that dignify will automatically remind you that it's time to check-in with one another. As a bonus, you can also immediately specify some custom topics which need to be discussed.
August 1st, 2017 Dashboard updates!
Updated Dashboard Page
Your dignify Dashboard has now been re-organized to more efficently display relevant information. The initial dashboard page now just shows information specific to you and your location/department. Activity information about your team has now moved to a dedicated "Activity" tab, and dignify scores & trophies are now on a "Your Scores" tab.
February 20th, 2017 Signup codes, leaderboards, printing Check-Ins & more!
New Direct Location/Department Signup Codes
There is now an easier way to assign a person to a location/department while they go through the signup process. These direct codes are now referenced in your administration area under Settings > Locations & Departments. Each location and department will have its own extention of the main company code, this allows a quicker signup for the user and piece of mind as you know they will be correctly assigned.
Gamification is proven to increase participation. People deserve to get credit for interacting with the system. Dignify is divided into 'seasons', we call them 'seasons' because the length of time is completely up to you. Your old season will be recorded and in the future you will have the ability to compare 'seasons'. This will reset everyone's scores and trophies back to zero.
New Gamification Leaderboards
We have added leaderboards for each different trophy, you will place differently depending on the points you put in each section. You will see this new area on your dashboard.
Groups - Searchable and Group Pages
Your groups will now be searchable in the search bar at the very top of the site. You can begin to type in the name of your group and you will see it drop down, clicking on it will bring you to a new page that will show all members of that group and their dignify stats. You can also access this new page from the Company > Groups area by clicking on the name of the group you want to view.
Print Multiple Check-ins
It's finally here! You asked for and we delivered! You can now print multiple check-ins, just tick the check-ins you want to print and go down to the "actions" button at the bottom of the table and click on "Print Check-ins".
Reporting - Trophies Earned Tab
Hey all you special administrators out there! The Activity Reporting area now has a new tab for "Trophies Earned". This will show in a table the trophies earned for the month you are searching for.
All you admins out there, we have heard your complaints! We get it, you are busy and don't want to be bothered with tons of emails! There is now an email settings area to turn off currently approval emails. We will expand this area with more settings as more email systems are in place.
