Our Ideation Update for the first half of 2021

Dear Community,

At Personio, one of our main Operating Principles is #SeekToImprove: we are constantly listening to feedback with the goal to improve ourselves, our company, and our product. Our Ideation Area allows you to connect with other users and share your feedback about our software with us, so you can help us develop a product that is even more tailored to your needs.

What happened since the launch of the Ideation Area in April ‘21?

  • 💡 70 ideas posted by community members
  • 🚧 2 ideas planned to be released soon
  • 🚀 1 idea released
  • 👍 150 upvotes given by community members

For such a new community, those numbers are impressive and we are very thankful for all of your input. 💙

Our Product Team has read every single idea and is constantly evaluating which one can be implemented. Our roadmap for the future is packed with new features and improvements. Each one of them undergoes a rigorous journey that last several months: the process roughly consists of discovery, research, planning, developing, and rigorous testing to make sure that everything works perfectly. 

That’s why we cannot release every single idea that you share, however we try to develop as many as possible and/or to give you an update about the most popular ones (based on your upvotes).


☑️We have updated as many ideas as we could. You can now see whether an idea is parked, planned*, released or still open for discussion. You can find a detailed list of the meaning of each status here

*In light of the Ideation Update we have added a new status (“Planned”) indicating that this idea is currently being researched and developed by our Product Team.


Which ideas have been implemented and which ones are coming soon?

Top 5 Ideas (with the most upvotes)

We would like to pay special attention to the Top 5 ideas that were most upvoted by the community. Here is a list, including the new status and the reason why we have set this status. To view the chart, just click on “Show content”

Idea Submitted by Status Comment from our Product Team
Duplicate onboarding steps @Evelien Eijsink Parked We are currently considering a rework of the onboarding setup and will take this idea into consideration in our research.
Absence Calendar to show days you don't work for part-time employees @Sonnenblume Parked We will possibly start a Discovery process for this in 2022.
Start / Stop Time Tracking Button on Dashboard @raddenol Parked We are planning to implement this feature, but we can’t say when. We will keep you posted when there are news!
Integration_Calendly for Recruiting @Nick Parked

We plan to implement video conferencing for interviews (integration with Zoom, GoogleMeets, etc.) this year.
Furthermore, we are planning to launch a smart tool that helps you schedule interviews - stay tuned!

360 degree feedback culture @Dide Planned We are definitely planning to implement a  360-degree-feedback function.
This will take some time to develop and likely be released at some point next year!



Why were some ideas set on “parked”?

Due to the mass of ideas, our own plans, and the overall demand from customers, we cannot consider every single idea in our planning. This status simply means that this idea will not be developed for the time being. However, all ideas that have been given the status "parked" will continue to be considered by us and may be rolled out again if our planning allows it. Anyway, you can still give your input on all ideas and continue to upvote.


What’s next?


Together with our first Ideation Update, we have also introduced new badges for you, which you can win through your activity in the Ideation area. We have already awarded the first ones today. Watch out for those! (What are Badges?)

We will publish another Ideation Update in the coming months to keep you posted about the development of your ideas. So keep on submitting your ideas, vote for the ones that interest you, and start a conversation with us and fellow community members. 

Thank you for helping us make our product even better- keep it up! 😊💙
