New product releases
Discover what we’ve been working on to make Peerdom a better product. There's usually a new release every second week.
Jan 12th 2023
A more intelligent search and cleaner results
When searching for several terms, you'll now see additional relevant results. The results are also easier to read: search terms are made bold, and you can instantly see the result's context (e.g. found your term within the Responsibilities of a Role).
A deeper search
Peerdom search now looks within role group descriptions. Results will appear for information inside responsibilities, notes, and more as defined at the group level.
Dec 21st 2022
Peerdom API is here
The Peerdom API is finally here! Grab the nearest tech-savvy person in your organisation, and they'll be able to read your data from Peerdom, in order to use it in other contexts. For example, you might import role descriptions into another software or view your list of Peerdom Projects in another digital tool. Check our API documentation.
Synchronize custom data from your external directory
If you're synchronizing your Peerdom peer directory to an external directory (e.g. Microsoft Azure, Google Workspace), you can now automatically import additional peer information from the directory. For example, you may import a peer's phone number or geographic region.
Quickly assign role holders
Did you know you can right click on your map for shortcuts? Now you can quickly assign a role holder by right clicking on a role and selecting "Assign role holders".
Nov 21st 2022
View your organisation in three dimensions
Space: the final frontier. We're excited to now offer a 3-dimensional spatial layout of your org map, so you can see your organisation in ways you've never seen it before.
Nov 3rd 2022
Browse your peers by name
In the peer dropdown you have an overview of all individuals in your organisation. These names are now sorted alphabetically.
Oct 19th 2022
Priority loading to important information
When loading your map, you now see the important data first and a visual indicator of areas still loading. This leads to faster map reading experience!
Oct 12th 2022
Rounding of contributions on mirrored roles
Contribution percentages for mirrored roles are now clean and accurate, rounded for easy reading.
Sep 29th 2022
Vacant roles appear striped - when it matters
When building your first map, all roles appear striped - indicating they are currently vacant. While useful to spot staffing gaps, this can be visually noisy in the beginning. We've made it so that striped (empty) roles only appear when you've assigned at least one peer to a role.
Sep 8th 2022
Spot your colleagues without photos
Photos give your profile and map life. For those who haven't uploaded a profile photo, we've made it easier to spot them. Names are now abbreviated to four letters, and a color is assigned to their avatar.
Aug 25th 2022
Guests can now search too
We've extended the available features for free Guest accounts, starting with the ability to search the map for peers, role titles, and groups.
In some cases, role contributions (Contribution App) would be displayed too precisely - with too many decimal places. We've rounded this up so that it's easy and intuitive to read contributions.
Jul 28th 2022
Full anonymisation of peers available for public maps
Did you know you can make your map public and share your beautiful map with your partners, clients, suppliers, and the world? You can now also fully anonymise the personal information of your peers and navigate to anonymised profiles.
Navigate with speed and security
We spent the summer speeding up Peerdom and squashing out various bugs - getting ready for a solid start to autumn.
Jun 21st 2022
Freshly designed emails
Peerdom occasionally sends you important notifications via email. These communications are now sexier, more legible, and more actionable.
Jun 7th 2022
More powerful search looks inside role & group descriptions
Search for keywords that appear in role and group descriptions. For example, find a role with a particular responsibility or a peer with a certain role focus. The new search engine provides a wider range of results to help you instantly find what you're looking for across Peerdom.
May 5th 2022
Set your map layout to expanded circle view and add connecting lines
Choose the expanded circles visualisation in the "View as" dropdown menu above the map and expand the view with the line option.
Apr 21st 2022
Archive or delete an organisation (if you are its Owner)
Do you have organisations in your list that you no longer need? Simply go to the Organisation Settings to either archive the organisation, keeping its data safely stored away for re-use later, or choose to permanently delete it.
Try the Insights App
We are excited to introduce the Insights App - a new way to discover what's happening behind the scenes in your organisation. Visualise the roles in your organisation with the greatest or least role turnover. The role turnover insight overlays a heat map that indicates how frequently role holders are leaving each role. Use this information to focus attention on roles with the largest impact on employee retention.
More performant loading of the Peer Profile
We have revisited and optimised peer profile loading so that you can see the most relevant information even sooner.
Apr 12th 2022
Peer activity shows on the peer profile
Find out how active your peers are on Peerdom by checking out their visit count on their peer profile.
Keep track of how many unpaid guest accounts you have left
You get 20 free Guest accounts for your organisation. We help you to keep track of the numbers: When giving a peer Guest access rights, the dialogue shows how many free guest accounts you have left.
Visual indicator of email verification
Find out at one glance if a peer has verified their email address. Peers who have verified their email address, or logged in via SSO, now have a green circle around their avatar in the peer dropdown menu.
Set your map layout in the dropdown menu
Choose how you want to see your organisation. The "View as" dropdown menu above the map shows you options including nested circles, expanded circles or a list view.
Mar 23rd 2022
See your organisation in new ways
Here's to seeing your organisation in a way you haven't seen it before: You can now expand roles outward, by turning off circle nesting. This new "expanded" visual is how many Sociocracy organisations prefer to see their organisation. Turn off circle nesting to see your organisation from a fresh perspective.
Introducing the Insights App: Find unstable roles by visualising role turnover
Introducing the Insights App! Discover patterns and make data-driven decisions. The first available insight colors your roles according to the frequency at which people are leaving them (role turnover). The Insights App will automatically turn on Journal App.
Insights App: Role fluctuation in the list view
Yet another way to see your organisation. Role turnover is also available on the list view with the same same warm to cold tones as on your map.
Mar 15th 2022
A glow up for the warning prompts
The notification prompts are among the oldest elements and needed a visual update. They now got a fresh look so they pop even more and guarantee you never loose an important piece of information.
Feb 25th 2022
A visual refresh for the list view
The list view was in need of some visual polish and now shines with its new look. You can seemlessly swap back and forth between list and circle views while inspecting the same role or group. Never lose context!
Personalise the product wording
Peerdom can be customised to fit any organisational design, and its vocabulary can be tailored accordingly. Choose from several terms for how you call peers, groups, roles, and representatives in the organisation settings.
Call your peers contributors
Tell us what organisational form you are using, and we support the appropriate terminology. We have added "contributor" as another term to refer to your colleagues.
Feb 16th 2022
Add Goals from the global action menu
Less steps to set a new goal: When the goals app is activated, Editors or Owners can add a new goal "+ New..." menu.
Traffic light confidence votes for Goals are here
How sure are you that you can reach your goals? Cast your confidence vote and see overall team confidence with a simple traffic light system: high, medium or low.
Update of the global product wording
Peerdom is not bound to a specific organisational style such as Holacracy or Sociocracy. To keep agnostic, we have renamed "circles" to "groups".
Jan 27th 2022
Take quick action with a right-click menu
Edit your map in two clicks! By right clicking on a role or group, you can now directly shortcut to editing the description, moving or copying.
Draft actions are listed in a simple pop-up menu
With more and more actions becoming possible for drafts, we now list your options in a simple and intuitive pop-up menu. Quickly duplicate or publish a draft, or spin-off a new organisation - in just two clicks.
Update goals simultaneously for all mirrored roles
When you attach goals to a mirrored role, updates are synchronised to all roles mirrored with it. To avoid unexpected changes to goals on the mirrored roles, we now ask to confirm your updates when you change mirrored role goals.
Clarifying how SSO-connected organisations can let peers go
Connecting your employee database to Peerdom via SSO is an easy way to maintain a single employee database. If one of your peers leaves the organisation, we make it clear that you need to manage with through your internal database team - not through Peerdom.
Jan 13th 2022
Goal progress is easy to track
You can now easily track progress with subgoal milestone markers. Overall progress is now represented by a single, easy-to-read percentage.
Offboard peers by letting them go
When one of your colleagues moves on to the next adventure, you can now "Let the peer go". This marks them as no longer working at your organisation. She or he will be removed from the peer dropdown and unassigned from all roles. However, their data remains in Peerdom in order to keep your organisational history intact.
Smooth Single-Sign-On integration
Connect to your employee database with ease: For organisations who synchronise their employee directories and connect to Peerdom by SSO, we've improved the experience with connection testing, feedback loops, and faster synchronisation.
Revoke Peerdom access for peers
Maybe you'd like to add a peer to the map but don't want to provide access to Peerdom yet. Or maybe you'd like to revoke Peerdom access for an individual. Both are now possible by changing a peer's access rights category to "No access".
Smarter data loading for better performance
We've significantly sped up the loading of your Peerdom. Even if you have a complex map, you can now navigate it almost immediately!
Dec 17th 2021
Zooming out made even easier
In Peerdom you can easily navigate from by clicking on the role or place of the map you would like to see. Looking at a role up close? Click "zoom out" to get back to the map overview.
Only owner can create a new organisation from within an organisation
You can create a new organisation through the global add button. This caused confusion as most peers who clicked on this option created (accidental) organisations. We have simplified the options and left it to owners only to create a new organisation.
Dec 2nd 2021
Stay informed about important changes to your organisation settings
Peerdom allows you to choose how much information you share with the world. Owners now receive an email when a peer modifies these organisation settings: public visibility, its Peerdom link, data anonymisation or the sharing of private links.
The Journal timeline shows events from the Goals App
If you have both the Journal and Contribution app activated, the Journal history now displays Goal events. The events involve the creation of a new goal, the removal of a goal, and updates to goals that lead to its completion.
Define a date range for goals
What better way to make sure you reach your goals than a deadline? We added a DATE FROM as well as a DATE TO to goals, and on top show the days left until DATE TO is reached.
Permissions to add yourself to a public organisation
We have recently added the ability to "directly add yourself as a peer". We made sure that only map creators have permissions to add themselves as a peer to a public organisation.
Nov 17th 2021
Adding yourself to another organisation just got easier
We've made it easier to add yourself as a peer to a new organisation. If you create a new, independent organisation, you can go to the peer drop down menu and directly add yourself as a peer.
Visual contribution bar on your profile
If you activate the Contribution app, everyone gets a visual contribution bar on their peer profile. This bar shows the sum of your contribution across roles compared to your total available contribution.
Nov 3rd 2021
New App: Goals
Align and motivate your team by adding strategic goals to roles and role groups. Track your progress towards achievement across the whole organisation with a visual overview on your map.
A personal journal for each peer
For organisations with the Journal App enabled, each peer profile now includes a personalised history of all activity for that peer.
A full role holding history is available
A few releases ago, the Journal App was updated to include previous roles on one's peer profile. The previous role section has been expanded to include roles which no longer exist on your live map.
Journal app includes Contribution changes
Get your whole team up to speed on time commitment changes. In addition to announcing when a role was taken on or left, the Journal now also highlights contribution changes in roles.
Oct 21st 2021
A new look for the App Store
The App pages in our App Store got a new look. Get a better idea of what each App adds to your personal Peerdom map with the top functionalities listed.
Sep 22nd 2021
Previously held roles are on the peer profile
Relive and learn from one's unique path through the roles they've previously held. Just visit a peer's profile and expand the new "Previously held roles" section to see one's historical contributions to your organisation.
Overview all peers who hold a mirrored role across the organisation
Mirrored roles are linked together and scattered across your organisation. Now you can see all role holders across the organisation by clicking on the "Mirrored with" link.
Track contribution with a visual bar
A bar on the peer profile indicates if the sum of individual role contributions is more or less than one's total expected contribution. This is useful for tracking if one is overworking or has additional capacity.
Sep 9th 2021
Assuring peer profile address anonymisation
We have tightened privacy even further for peer profiles: Visitors who browse an anonymised map cannot figure out a person's name from the profile address.
Flexibly copy and move parts of one map to another
The Drafts App allows you to work on multiple maps at once. Do you like a particular part of your draft design? Copy specific areas of a draft map to the published map. Or the other way around: Copy parts of your live map to any of your drafts!
Choose to copy a role with or without holders
Save yourself some manual work when duplicating a role or circle. When copying a them, you're now able to maintain role holders.
Create a new organisation from a draft
Use your previous learnings and spin-off an entirely new organisation from one of your drafts. Your new organisation will have its own Peerdom link and you as thee initial map owner. Click the (...) on any draft, then select "Publish as new organisation".
Organisation settings in the navigation bar
To make navigation more intuitive, we have added the organisation settings to the navigation sidebar. In the organisation settings, you can update your organisation name, export data, fix how you format names, and much more.
Switch between your organisations
If you have access to more than one Peerdom organisation, you can now simply extend the profile menu and switch to any of your organisations.
Guest accounts have well defined limits
Guest accounts are free in Peerdom. We made these accounts even more useful by allowing Guests to see the Map, role descriptions, and peers without restriction. Guests can also visit any peer's profile and see their full name and picture. They are unable to see other personal information such as birthdate or email.
Aug 26th 2021
Change role contributions from your profile
Update how much you contribute to each role directly on your profile. The profile also now highlights roles where you contribute (green) and those where there's no contribution (red). Check the sum of your contributions against your total attendance to balance your workload.
Time to tidy up your draft desk! Keep your draft space clean by archiving all of those organisation designs that did not make the cut. Don't worry, you can always bring them back later if you wish to unarchive.
Projects are now visualised on the map
All ongoing projects are now drawn directly on the map, surrounding the roles. Clicking on a project reveals the project details and highlights all involved roles.
Export map data
Your data is all yours: Export all data you've ever put into Peerdom. Choose between Excel, CSV or JSON format.
Aug 11th 2021
Set your default email client
Does your organisation use Microsoft Outlook? Change your default email client in the organisation settings page to properly format group emails sent from Peerdom to roles and circles.
Added role focus to your peer profile
Your peer profile shows all the roles you hold and now also highlights any role focus you may have on that role.
Peerdom prints pretty
Until now, contributions were only displayed for individual roles. Now you can see the total contribution of all roles in a group (circle).
Jul 28th 2021
Configure how you display peer names
How does your team refer to one another? You can now choose how you display peer names in the organisation settings. Choose your favourite order of first, last, and nicknames.
Your contribution in hours and FTE
The Contribution App lets you define percentage involvement per role and per peer. You can now change the contribution type to be measured in hours or FTE (full-time equivalents).
How much does your circle contribute?
Until now, contributions were only displayed for individual roles. Now you can see the total contribution of all roles in a group (circle).
Improving data privacy
We've tightened our safety framework by preventing external backend queries aiming to decipher the names of anonymised Peerdom users.
Jul 14th 2021
Your projects on your peer profile
We have expanded your peer profile to include not only your roles and mission statement. Now, you can also view the projects you are working on directly from your personal profile.
The Missions app got a new look
It has been some time since we have brushed up on the Missions app. This release it got some love and here it is with a fresh look.
Projects without members now wear stripes
You only added empty roles to your project and plan to do so later? The projects where you have not assigned role holders yet stand out and remind you that they are still missing.
Jul 1st 2021
Sketch out project roles before deciding who contributes
You might know which roles you need in your project, but sometimes you don't know yet who will do it. Now you can add empty roles to a project and choose the role holder later depending on their availability and eagerness.
Select a Project Representative
You can now define a single point of contact for a project. This representative might for example be a project coordinator, leader, or spokesperson.
Tight budget? Limited access guest accounts are here
Peerdom brings your organisation the most value when you map your whole team. For those colleagues that rarely consult Peerdom, we now offer free guest accounts with restricted functionality.
Restricting access to sensitive data
We've improved data privacy by preventing backend queries to return any personal information hidden on anonymised or public maps.
Jun 17th 2021
The Projects app got some love with this release: Keep your projects organised by putting them into groups.
Drag and drop projects into groups

Looking for a particular role on a peer's profile? You can now sort roles in alphabetical order, or if the Contribution app is enabled, sort by one's contribution percentage.
