Today we bring one of our biggest feature updates to date. A lot of new stuff that will make it easier and better to use the platform.
A new way to create users
We reworked user creation, so now you can add one or multiple users at a time. The bulk user adding has been a long-standing request, so we are glad it’s finally here.
It’s also easier to assign admin or consulting powers. Go to team management and click add new team member to check it out.
Recognition of existing users
When you enter an email to create a user, we check if the user already exists in your system or another portal. If it does, we enter the data for you, so it’s easier to manage user data.
Language in account defaults
When you create users, you can set a language for the new user. Under the company setting, you now have a tap that allows you to set the default language for the portal, which impacts all the users you create, so you start with the correct language and don’t have to change it for each new user.
Inactive users upon creation
When you added a user in the past, the user became active and got an email with account creation. But after setting their account, the portal was empty for them until you started the Sprint. This made an extra unnecessary step for all your people. Now we fixed that, so new users are inactive until a sprint where they participate starts — then they are activated and get an email with account creation.
That also means you can now add inactive users to sprints, and then we activate them when the Sprint starts.
If you want to activate a user before starting a sprint, you can do that under the advanced tab. Admins and consultants are made active on creation.
Email option on modules
As a brand new feature, we added an email option to each module. If you click the new email icon, you can set an email all participants receive upon entering the module. That means you can now send out extra materials or other stuff that’s relevant for each module. This counts as a critical email in the notification level setting.
Just remember — with great powers comes great responsibility. So don’t spam people.
New engagement emails
We added a couple of engagement emails to the new notification system we launched at the start of this month.
- Follow-up on new users. If a user didn’t set up their new account within 3 days, we send a reminder.
- No login to new Sprint. If a user didn’t check out a new Sprint that’s started within 2 days, we send a reminder.
We hope these two new emails will lead to even more engagement from your people and help you kick off new users and sprints better.
