How to Use the Smart Booster

Within a 1-on-1, the Smart Booster displays an employee's recent Goals and Feedback activity.

What is the Smart Booster? 

The Smart Booster is an element within a 1-on-1 that displays an employee's recent Goals and Feedback activity for both the employee and the manager's reference. Employees and managers can both reference the Smart Booster while preparing for a 1-on-1 and easily select items from the Smart Booster to add to their agenda.  The Smart Booster will appear automatically as an option for any users who have 1-on-1s and either Goals or Feedback enabled.

The Smart Booster only displays Goal and Feedback updates that have taken place since the last 1-on-1 occurred, which helps managers easily discern items that might be important to discuss in their upcoming 1-on-1.  Specifically, the Smart Booster displays any Goals that have been created or updated since the last 1-on-1 and any Feedback an employee has received since the last 1-on-1.  

How to Use the Smart Booster

When an employee or manager initiates a 1-on-1 (e.g., when a 1-on-1 is user-initiated rather than Admin-initiated), the Smart Booster appears automatically to both participants the first time that they open the 1-on-1.  Both the employee and the manager (or person answering the facilitator topics for the 1-on-1) will have the option to select one or more of the Goals that the employee is working on and one Feedback session that the employee has received to add to the 1-on-1. 

If either the manager or the employee adds activity from the Smart Booster to the 1-on-1, both will be able to scroll down to see the items that have been added to their 1-on-1. Any goals that were added to the 1-on-1 will display under the Goal Conversation heading, and any Feedback will appear under the Feedback Booster heading. 

For Admin-initiated cycles, the Smart Booster will not appear automatically. Instead, employees and/or managers will be able to click the Conversation Boosters menu in the bottom left corner of their 1-on-1 in order to access the Smart Booster. The Smart Booster is accessible from this location for all open 1-on-1s.
