  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • FREE profiles for Office Pets

        Some cool offices allow employees to bring a pet to the office. Allow the owner the ability to create a "Pet profile" with a name, type, breed, likes, dislikes, etc. Use the same tagging functionality for attributes and filtering results. By default PETS do not show up lobby application because Fido can't reach the phone but PETS do show up in the org chart. PETS can be associated just like team members, reporting to a specific employee. Allow employees to have multiple PETS, because we know people have multiple dogs, cats, fish, birds, lizards, etc. Lets not get crazy...

          • Allow for two profile pictures

            My company has an external public facing directory that we would love to use PingBoard for populating. I imagine the API will work for this. The question our People and Culture Director has is can we have two different photos? Formal for public facing and character shot for internal.

              • Support additional photos on an employee's profile

                We'd love to allow employees to add pictures of their family and pets within their profile. It just improves the ability to get to know someone.

                    • Rearrange order of fields in the Edit Profile module

                      Can we also rearrange the order that items show up in the “Edit Profile” page? We would like to move the custom field “Work Phone” up above “Mobile” and then list “Teams/Departments” and “Social & Photo” (in that order) above “Private Information"

                      • Reorganize boxes and custom fields in profile

                        I'd like the ability to move custom fields from the "More about 'name of user'" to the top of the profile. I'd also like to reorganize the boxes and place them in different places on the profile.

                        • For the fields that allow Tags, (eg Skills, Interests) we would like to be able to re-order those.

                          Sometimes you didn't think of a 'good one' until the end, but you want it to display first. We are unable to drag/reorder while editing the profile.

                              I travel frequently and would like to be able to set my timezone manually, so I can correctly view out of office status updates in the right time.

                              • Suggest an update to a profile field that can not be edited by the employee

                                It would be super cool to have the ability to suggest to the Pingboard Admin corrections to profile fields that we as employees can not update. In our company that is things like lack of team inclusions, or wrong start dates.

                                  • Make key employee milestones (birthday and anniversary) standout in the app

                                    I was scrolling through to see what new people we have hired and a green color caught my eye so I stopped to see what it was. I love this! But, since we have lots of people now, I scroll quickly... would be nice to make it stick out a little more.
