How can we improve Pingboard?

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    Pingboard Bot: John Doe is out of the office today: "Doctor appointment in the AM"

    • Enable old horizontal org chart view

      The new vertical view is nice for printing. But, the problem is that the view is not consistent. For example, depending on what you click, some of a manager's direct reports will be vertical and some will be horizontal, and this keeps changing back and forth. Employees at different levels will appear to be at the same level, and employees at the same level will appear to be at different levels. Plus, an only-vertical view masks when there are span of control issues.

      • Create a notification section on site for changes (title, team, etc.) so people know when someone has a profile update.

        Example: If my title changes from Program Manager to Program Director, my teammates are aware of that.

        • Use LinkedIn to help me build my org chart

          Once I connect my LinkedIn account, Pingboard could include LinkedIn results in the auto-complete and when I select a person from LinkedIn, Pingboard can pre-fill their name, title and photo.

            • Update Slack status automatically based on Pingboard status

              Slack is now showing a status icon and a ghost message with the status of a person like "In Vacation". Would be nice to have Pingboard once per hour update the Slack Status

              • Achievement Badges

                Inside of Google's HR portal you van view everyone's basic information / org chart, additionally you could view achievement badges. These badges were created by Googlers, and distributed by Googlers (via various APIs). Additionally there were API's to query users and what badges they had, so there were various leaderboards.

                These badges were pretty absurd (and fun!), if you came in via an acquisition you would have the "Original X company gangster", if you created a code change and your PR / CL number had any Yahtzee combination in it you could get a "2 of a kind", "3 of…

                    It would be great if we could reorder the information that populates in the automated weekly email. For example, highlight the new hires first, then anniversaries, and finally OOO.

                            You can click to dial a phone number from a profile, but it would be great to also do this from the org chart view.

                                When an OOO is posted/updated - if I have Pingboard up and running - the status does not change on my view unless I refresh the page. Is there a method/feature to have auto-refresh or realtime updates represented when Pingboard up and running in your browser?

                                    • add a grouping called 'clubs' so that similar-minded users can associate with one another. This would be separate but similar to 'teams'.

                                      I think it would be cool to add a grouping called 'clubs' so that similar-minded users can associate with one another. Perhaps the email lists add-in can work with clubs so that users can add and remove themselves from 'club' distribution lists.

                                      • Multiple org charts for accounts

                                        Currently Pingboard offers the ability for each account to have only 1 org chart, which shows people reporting structures.

                                        As a user, I’d like to be able to see the functional structure of the company i.e. We have 6 functional organizations: Sales, Product Development, Legal, Talent, and Marketing. Within the Sales organization, there are three Departments: Inside Sales, Channel Sales Team, and Account Management departments

                                        As a user, I’d like to be able to click on an organization department to learn more about what they do via uploaded content or link to other content like videos or team sites.
