  1. Customize the browser favicon

    It would be nice to allow the customization of the Browser Favicon

    • 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.

      • Downloadable Employee Record

        The ability to run and print a custom report for only 1 Employee so one may export an "Employee Record" of sorts. At the moment, one may only run reports for all employees in the company.

        I am attempting to deprecate a hard copy form that new employees fill out on their first day of employment, and replace it with an easily downloadable custom report for each New Hire after they fill out their profile.

        • 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.

          • Self-service CSV import with column mapping and online preview

            We'd like to be able to import our own CSV files for expediency but realize there could be data corruption. The system could give us the ability to map columns and see a preview of the data before confirming. Undo/rollback would help when there were errors.

              You can now import new employees and add manager info right from the org chart – just click Import. A few seconds later, your org chart will be updated!

              Next, we’ll take what we learn (plus your helpful feedback) to expand the feature to support all standard and custom fields.

            • Read-only Pingboard access for non-Pingboard users

              We'd like an link for clients to see/search our Pingboard directory even if they don't have a Pingboard account themselves, in the same way that clients/customers/interested-parties can view other websites' Staff Directories without being a staffer themselves.

              • Stagger import of users based off of their Start Date in a CSV Import

                We will be rolling out gradually. We don’t want people to show up on Pingboard before their roll-out date, if I add a roll-out date to the csv we would prefer if the records are not imported until that date

                  • Add employees without affecting headcount

                    Can we add interns (or part time vs. full time employees) and only have full time employees included in the official headcount?

                    • Do not show newly added employees until their start date

                      We would like to hold on showing new employees in the directory until their start date and also hold from them being announced in the weekly email until then too.

                        • Set permissions for who can view an employee in the directory

                          We have some employees that are in "secret" teams we don't want other employees to know about. These employees should be able to see other employees though.

                          • Show me engagement metrics or stats on the people using Pingboard

                            I would like to be able to see data to help me understand how my employees/members are using Pingboard. Some data points might even be able to uncover insights that I can then act on.

                            For example:

                            1) What are searches in Pingboard - Are people searching for something that maybe we can help with?
                            2) Key Metrics - Logins from mobile, web, pings
                            3) Charts - Showing me graphs of engagement over time.

                                  • Allow permissions for each group (for example: sharing external contacts with a portion of the company)

                                    It would be nice to have granular permissions for each group or even each user that is similar to Active Directory. For example our groups are employees, vendors, and business partners. Our employees do not need to be able to see our vendors and business partners. Another example would be having an Executives group and an Interns group. You may not want your Interns group to be able to see the Executives group. Just an example, but I'm sure there are a lot of other scenarios where this could be useful. Keep up the good work!

                                    • Add a separate "Middle Name" field

                                      In order to properly sort Employees alphabetically by first name, there needs to be a separate field for middle names. If the middle initial/name is added to the first name field, it doesn't sort properly.

                                      For example, one would expect that "David Goldfarb" & David E. Goldfarb" would be right next to each other alphabetically, however without a separate middle name field, all of the "other Davids" get inserted in between.

                                      • Let Pingboard Admins reset passwords for employees

                                        Sometimes employees are unable to reset their password using the reset password tool. The email with details on how to reset the password sometimes does not get to the employees for a variety of reasons.

                                        It would be beneficial to let Admins set manually a new temporary password that they can send to the employee. When they employees logins in next they will be required to reset the password.
