We're pleased to announce several exciting new changes to the PeopleGoal platform. This is the first major update since the release of PeopleGoal 2.0 and takes into account the valuable feedback we've heard from you over the last few months.
We've made numerous updates to the User Interface. The most prominent changes include the following items:
There are also a number of smaller changes such as scrolling overflow fix on new item dialogs, an items tab on user profiles, performance improvements and other visual tweaks.
Each App on PeopleGoal can now have one 'participant' as an 'item owner'. This allows us to give a simple representation to users: You (the items you own), Your Colleagues (the items your colleagues / direct reports own) and All Items (all items that you have permission to view). This concept is now present in all apps within the account, as well as on the Dashboard. For users and managers this should give a far clearer picture of what you own vs. what your colleagues own.
This update relates to the single biggest piece of feedback we've had since the launch of PeopleGoal 2.0: the view of your items was confusing, as it showed all the items you're involved with, rather than the items that you own. There were technical reasons behind the original logic, but we agree it was confusing to the user.
Previously the view called 'Relationships' was available for Account Owners only in the Account Settings menu. We received a great deal of feedback around this being useful for employees too. We've taken the opportunity to rename this view 'Organization' as it better represents lines of reporting in your organization. In addition, we've moved this view into the main sidebar and made it accessible to all users.
Non-account owners now have a view-only picture of their reporting lines. Users can display and expand their reporting lines to build a full picture of the organization. Account owners can use the same interface to add new relationships, edit existing relationships and build new user relationships to reflect the organizational structure.
For Account Owners there's lots of new functionality to explore but no immediate action or changes you need to make. The structure of your apps, workspaces, posts and schedules remains the same, only now it's easier to navigate. For all users, the changes are live so just sign in to your account to check out these improvements.
We have a quickstart guide for all users to help navigate the platform. This guide reflects the changes and updates we've made, so even if you've used it before it's useful to take another look - you may find helpful tips you didn't know about:
And for Account Owners our Support Center has comprehensive documentation for every area of your PeopleGoal account:
