  1. Slack integration: Add querying of team members current status

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

    I would like to be able to get the current status for a team member on slack.

    • Autorefresh - Realtime Updates on Pingboard

      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.

            • Make the Out of Office page more scalable (or: don't let it hang 20 seconds when hundreds of statuses are loading)

              As our org is growing, the OOF page simply hangs for a long time while loading all the statuses (especially over the holidays). There must be a better way.

              • 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.

                • Simple Search using by URL query string, such as: https://company.pingboard.com/?search=John+Smith

                  Would be nice if a user could do a Simple Search using the URL query string, such as: https://company.pingboard.com/?search=John+Smith and have Pingboard list all John Smith's in the Company.

                  That way we could have a simple Bookmarklet so that if I highlight a name on a webpage I can search for that person in Pingboard.

                  • Create Rules that Add Employees to Team Based on Title

                    Would be awesome to be able to create rules that would allow automatic adding of employees to teams based on their title and location.

                    i.e. Someone with "Account Executive" in their title is added - they are auto joined to the Sales Team.

                    Being able to create rules for common positions would greatly reduce manually having to add new employees to the respective teams.

                    • HR Manager / Global Approver notifications

                      Would like to specify a person (or multiple people) who receive all Out-Of-Office notifications when the item is submitted. The same email notification that a user's manager receives when they submit something. This would allow for a backup approver/denier, but also allow HR to see requests as they come in rather than only in a weekly digest.

                      • Jell Integration:

                        Would like to see integration with Jell. We use Jell for our daily standups - and it would be nice if when an OOO is posted - it would update Jell accordingly.

                        • Access Profile from Picture Regardless where it is accessed from...

                          When I am in the "Directory" and I click on a picture - I get the person's profile (expected behavior). When I am in the "Org Chart" and I click on a picture - I get the org expanded (unexpected behavior - I expected to get the person's profile). Anytime I see a picture - I expect to receive a profile if I click on the picture.

                            Most of people use mobile app instead of web app : it should be possible to link their social accounts (linkedin / twitter / facebook) without having to log on the web app.

                            • Add Anniversary by month in the search groups feature

                              Currently when we search "December" - we get a Groups "December Birthdays"... Would love to see "December Anniversaries" for everyone that started in December.. Each month we bring up on a big TV all the birthdays for the month. We also want to bring up all of the people that are having an anniversary that month - 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, etc., etc. Would be so nice! Right now we have to put data into a Google Slide rather than use Pingboard.

                                Allow for a private notes option (to only be seen by the employee's manager). Some employees don't want the whole company to know specifics of doctors' appts, etc.

                                • make "Pinging" internal in the software to reduce emails and text messages that go out to users.

                                  If employees want to email someone, they will simply do so. Would love to see a chat function on someones profile that stays within Pingboard.

                                    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.

                                        • Add ability to filter OUT specific teams or users in the visitor app

                                          Not all users are in the building a kiosk visitor is signing into. Need the functionality to HIDE specific employees or teams from the kiosk. Reduce the number of choices and avoid visitors pinging an employee who is not physically on site
