  1. Ability to sort people by start date (newest first)

    A bunch of new employees started while I was on maternity leave. I wish I could sort my Pingboard by start date so I easily get to know the new people

    • Sub Locations

      You should be able to create locations within locations.

      • 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.

        • History for locations

          It would be really helpful if people could also add info about previous locations. That it would be visible on both the employee profile and the location page. For our company it is of great value to easily find who has been where.

            • Bulk add members to team/group

              Have a page where you can assign multiple employees/users to a single team/group/location (e.g. via a list and checkboxes of all members for the company).

              • Multiple group (e.g. team/project) assignments by percentage allocation

                My previous employer's team directory supported users being assigned to multiple groups (e.g. projects or teams).

                It also supported a percentage allocation to indicate if a person was 70% on one project, and 30% assigned to another for example. This allowed projects to see how many total FTE (full time employee) equivalent resources were assigned to it.

                • Show map of employee locations

                  It would be great to have a view showing where our employees are based, as dots on a map, so that we can choose people to join meetings with clients in very different time zones.

                  And having that organized by teams would be useful, either with each team as a dot in a different color, or at least being able to plot individual teams (so that we can find the Support person closest to Abu Dhabi).

                  • Custom data fields for Groups in Pingboard

                    We use groups to showcase different startups located in our office. Our members want to see data on these companies in Pingboard, just like they can for the people in that company. Things like: Industry, Funding amount, etc.

                    Also they'd like to share 3rd party contacts they use for their company with others. For example bookkeepers, lawyers, etc.

                    • Allow "Locations" to be a logical construct

                      Many companies have multiple physical locations that each run autonomously (e.g. a restaurant group with locations in Austin, Houston, and Dallas). Default employee views to their physical location but allow them to include other offices. In particular, filters and searches should be limited to home location unless opted to be wider in nature.

                        • Allow formatting options in Group description field

                          We would like to include links inside the description field for a group and format where those links show up. It would be great if we could include HTML formatting options in the description field for groups.
