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".

  1. Add basic calendar function - recurring status

    This seems pretty rudimentary, especially since Pingboard is a status tracker and often times statuses are recurring. Please, our team is begging for this.

    • Add the ability to input the time zone when inputting times

      I'm out of office tomorrow and I'm taking a train at 2:30pm until 6pm. But guess what? You don't know what time zone I'm taking the train in.

      What time will pingboard tell my team I'm out of office in Slack? What time will it appear I'm out of office in Pingboard?

      That's the fun of things right now. People change time zones... please make it possible to set your out of office notifications in a specific time zone.

      • Choose fields when printing org charts

        Imagine you need to provide an org chart for a tender or presentation - but don't want the employee photo or name to be in it. Currently, you have to print whatever field the Admin has as standard on the chart.

        A way to choose which fields are displayed on cards when printing would be great.

        • 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

            • Export categories like 'department' and 'location' into XLS

              I'd like to be able to Export users into an XLS based on the different categories under 'Department' in Pingboard (ours are 'department' and 'location').

              Currently we are exporting a full report, then filtering to see this. Would save a lot of time to have an Export button!

              • Option to view the org chart upside down

                The entire org chart would be inverted, showing who is supporting who.
                The CEO would be at the bottom, supporting the people above.

                • Export a user's entire org as CSV or XLS

                  In addition to exporting a user's entire org as a PNG or PDF, having XLS or CSV options would be HUGE for us.

                  • printing options

                    We use Pingboard in order to not manage a PPT deck version of our org chart, but when asked to provide a slide or PDF version of our org chart (complete or departments) that is readable, I have to manually create one in PPT since there are no options for sizing the Pingboard chart for printing. Would love some flexibility on that.

                    • Allow multiple branches to be included in the org chart export

                      Currently, if there are multiple branches, each has to be downloaded separately. It would be helpful to merge all branches in to a singular downloadable chart.

                      • Integrate with MSFT Teams

                        Microsoft Teams is out there as a serious alternative to Slack for companies wedded to Microsoft products. Integration would be really useful.

                          • Anniversary report should show the number of years and/or highlight major anniversaries

                            It would be nice if the anniversary report was able to display *which* anniversary is coming up for each individual. In particular, it would be great if major anniversaries were highlighted/called out in some way (e.g. 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, etc).

                                    • 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.
