New Hi5 — Who dis? Our biggest feature changes in 2022 and how to navigate them 💅
This article will help you with the new version of Hi5 and our feature updates
Yep, I know you’ve noticed! We’ve been talking about it since July 2021 and it’s finally here: Hi5 Version 3 (or V3, as we’ve lovingly dubbed it 🤗). Some of our customers have needed a few nudges in the right direction as they grow into our new interface, so I thought it would be cool to put all the changes together in one handy article.
What’s in this article
Wall of Fame
Give a Hi5
Manage Pulses & Individual Reports
My Status & Pulses To Do
Find People & Organogram
Hi5 needed structural changes in our code and our interface needed some tough love. We brought in a UX Specialist to upgrade our journeys, views, colours… heck, even our buttons! Here’s the short version:
Can’t seem to pass the test? You might need to click the Forgot your password? link.
Open your Main Menu on the left.
Open your Profile Menu in the top right corner.
View Announcements by clicking on the Bell icon in the top right corner.
View and post on the Notice Board by clicking on the Calendar icon in the top right corner.
Get help via our Support Chat in the bottom right corner.
3) Hi5 Wall of Fame
We’ve simplified the Hi5 Wall of Fame, and also made it more visually accessible!
Easily view Birthdays, Monthly Hi5 Leaderboard and your Company Values in the left-hand panel.
Use the Sort by dropdown on the wall to choose to see Hi5’s from this month or last month only.
Use the Filter by dropdown on the wall to choose to see Hi5’s from a particular department or office in your company.
Click Back This to back a particular Hi5.
Click Comments on any particular Hi5 to view and leave a comment.
Crown a Hi5 by clicking on the 3-dot button in the top right corner of a Hi5 and choosing “Crown” (Admins only).
View the Weekly Recognition, Games Center shortcut and the Hi5 integrations in the right-hand panel.
4) Give a Hi5
Click the Send a Hi5 name field/button to choose someone to give a Hi5 to.
Type the name of the co-worker you’d like to give a Hi5 to. Note: only co-workers with active Hi5 accounts will be able to receive Hi5's!
Important Note: If you use Get Hi5’s outside your company already, you will need to update your shareable Hi5 link. Click on the Get a Hi5 outside your company button and paste the new link.
Once you’ve chosen your Hi5 receiver, you can build your Hi5:
Choose an animated GIF or upload your own image (optional)
Tag more co-workers to turn it into a Team Hi5
Write your recognition message and measure its sentiment with our Genuine Meter
Tag a company value (depending on account settings)
Send your Hi5 to the Wall of Fame! Your co-worker(s) will also receive an email (depending on settings)
5) Recognition Reports (Admin & Line Manager Only)
The Recognition Dashboard is now called the Recognition Overview report.
When you scroll down the Recognition Overview report shows you the Hi5 stats of the top Givers and Receivers in your company. You can download these in PDF and CSV format by clicking the relevant icon in the Options column.
To exclude Birthday Hi5’s, simply click the Grey button next to the Date filter.
The Recognition Insights report shows you some really cool insights into how people are giving recognition at your company (for instance, what day of the week most Hi5’s are given, and whether Admins or Employees give the most recognition).
The Culture Report shows you which of your company values are being tagged the most in Hi5’s.
Measure Hi5 sentiment at a glance with the new Word Cloud report.
You can scroll down to see who has been receiving the most Hi5’s tagged with values (We call them the Culture Champions 💪).
Manage Pulses is where you create, view, edit, archive and delete Pulses.
Create a new Pulse by clicking the Add New Pulse button at the top right of the screen.
Click the Gear icon next to a Pulse to see the preview, and to edit the Settings (including assigning participants and a Pulse group).
Click the Graph icon (“View Pulse Stats”) next to a Pulse to see the Overall Summary and Individual Response reports (depending on Pulse type and transparency).
Pro tip: Click the Funnel icon next to any column name in Hi5 to filter the column!
Control whether Line Managers can see the Pulses results with the toggle switch in the Visibility column.
Open and close the Pulse with the toggle switch in the Cycle column.
Click the number of completions button in the Completed column to send a reminder to outstanding Pulse participants.
Go to the Individual Reports tab (only available on Hi5 Business) to see the overview reports of each co-worker, including all the Pulses they’ve been a part of.
Click on one of their latest Pulses to go to an individual’s report.
To download an Individual Report, click on the PDF/CSV icons at the top right of the screen.
This is also where you’ll be able to back up all the data for an individual using the Full Archive report download.
7) My Status & Pulses To Do
The My Status report shows you all your previous Pulse responses, once the Admin or Line Manager has closed a Pulse cycle.
To complete a Pulse, go to your Pulses To Do tab. Completed Pulses have a green tick next to them.
8) My Company (Admin & Line Manager Only)
The My Company tab still holds all the tools and settings for running your Hi5 account with ease 🙌
Go to Manage to view and edit all the co-workers on the account. Note: Line Managers can only view their own teams and cannot edit any profiles.
Go to Settings, under the Workspace tab you can upload your company logo, set up the email domains allowed to join your company account via a shared link (Allowed Email Domains) and set up your Okta SSO.
9) Add Co-workers
When inviting co-workers via email, you can now also assign their Permission, Department and Office (Admin only).
You can also get the Share Link in the next tab to invite others to join your company account.
Go to the Azure AD tab to invite co-workers via Azure Active Directory, if applicable.
10) Find People & Organogram
View your co-workers’ profiles and the company Organogram. A great tool for keeping everyone connected, and for onboarding new employees!
11) Games Center
The Hi5 Games Center features retro puzzle games to play at work to help co-workers get to know each other, learn about their strengths and the company’s values. More info here >
