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.

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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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.

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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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.

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.

Alt

5 months ago (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!

Alt

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.

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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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".

6 months ago (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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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.

7 months ago (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.

Alt

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!

7 months ago (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.

Alt

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.

8 months ago (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.

Alt

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.

8 months ago (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.

Alt

Alt

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.

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.

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.

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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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.

a year ago (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.

Archive drafts

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.

Alt

Added role focus to your peer profile

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.

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).

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.

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.
