A gorgeous new interface
Peerdom just got more beautiful. We've cleaned up quite a bit and put on fresh coat of paint. Get creative as you map your organisation upon Peerdom's brand-new, neutral and natural tones.
Get down to work with the Projects app
The newest tool in our kit is the Projects app, a space for you to track operational projects such as "Host annual conference" or "Revamp website". Put simply, the Projects app keeps track of your ongoing work. As for all Peerdom apps, if you're interested in activating this module, get in touch with us.
Representative roles now stand out
In a previous release we made it possible to set a role as a representative of a circle. Representative roles now visually "pop out" of your map with a spherical gradient texture! You can also easily identify these special roles in the inspector (right hand side) with the "Representative" tag underneath the role title.
Thursday, March 26th
Customise role and circle definitions
The Peerdom Customisation app just got a lot more powerful: you can now tailor role and circle definitions to match your organisation's needs. Do you want your circles to have a special Budget, Milestones, or KPI section? Does your Holocracy or Sociocracy org design require sections for Domains or Policies? With the Customisation app, you can now add, rename or remove sections to your ❤️'s content. This change is not yet available through the editing interface, so if you're interested, contact us.
Unfilled roles are now striped
One of the most important features in Peerdom is the ability to quickly see which roles are unfilled across your entire organisation. Previously, unfilled roles (roles without a holder) were greyed-out, irrespective of their color settings. We've now made it so that they maintain their color settings and rather become striped (literally unfilled in color).
Tuesday, March 3rd
Customise fundamental Peerdom terms
We're thrilled to add the Peerdom Customisation app to our toolbelt! Peerdom typically defines "peers" who hold "roles" within "circles". If your organisation uses special terminology, you can now change these terms. For example, rename peers to colleagues, roles to positions, circles to teams, and representatives to leaders - or whatever you want! This change is not yet available to through the editing interface, so if you're interested in customising the Peerdom base terms, contact us.

Direct access to a peer's profile
You can now directly access a peer's profile by selecting them (right column) and clicking on their image at the top-right of the map. Previously, the only way to get there was by clicking on their name in the peer menu.
Thursday, January 30th
Designate representative roles
If your organisation has roles with a special status (e.g. team leader, guide, representative, lead link, etc) you can now set them as circle representatives. You can see representative roles as having special decision-making accountabilities or responsibility to speak on behalf of the circle in super-circles.
Monday, January 6th
Map external circles
Your organisation is the centerpiece of Peerdom, but you don't exist in a vacuum. Map out your full ecosystem with external circles. External circles appear outside of your organisation's main circle and can be used to collect external roles for complex external entities such as a board of directors, suppliers, and partners.
Monday, December 23rd
Share your map
Sharing is caring. Inspire others with your sexy organisation design, make it transparent who is responsible for what, and expose your map to whoever you'd like outside of your organisation. You can now create a private, shareable link that provides view-only access to your map.
Wednesday, December 11th
Map external roles
One of life's unanswered philosophical mysteries asks: are we defined by the sum of our insides? Or are we rather defined by whatever is left over after describing everything outside of us? No need to lose sleep over this puzzle, now you can define both. External roles appear outside of your organisation's main circle. They are a great way to represent external freelancers, auditors, bookkeepers, and temp workers.
Thursday, December 5th
Change your profile picture
Your peer profile image can now be uploaded or changed. Now go show your beautiful face to other peers!
Copy/duplicate circles and roles
Quickly create new roles or circles by starting from a previous description. Circles and roles can now be easily copied to other locations on the map. This saves an enormous amount of editing time!
Create mirrored roles
When you copy/duplicate a role into a mirrored copy, every change in that role will be automatically synced between all of the other mirrored roles of its kind. No more repetitive editing work for common roles!
Thursday, October 17th
Move roles and circles
Mapping has become even more rapid. You can now easily move roles and circles to any other location on your map.
Friday, September 20th
Change a role or circle's colour

Lightning fast editing!
One small step for mankind... but one big step for Peerdom toward reactivity and speed! Now you can update map content in real-time. Edit roles, circles and peers and see your changes immediately.
Thursday, November 22nd
Unfilled roles are highlighted
A birds-eye view of which roles have no holders is useful in two ways: 1) team members can immediately understand where they can best contribute by filling in the gaps and 2) you can observe where you might need to seek help. Roles without holders are now easily seen: they are greyed out and have a dashed circumference.
Quickly see how many roles a peer holds
Get a quick understanding of how roles are distributed across your organisation. The peer menu now shows how many roles each peer holds and highlights peers who currently hold no roles.
