Onboardingbot update

Our Slack bot has gotten a major update. The following things have been changed / improved:

  • The bind command does not longer work anymore. Just use onboard @username to onboard a new hire. Onboardingbot will ask you to connect the account in ChiefOnboarding to the Slack account when this is necessary.
  • When you onboard a new hire, you will get asked what you want to add to the new hire. You can now assign items individually.
  • New hires can now ask questions to the bot. Onboardingbot will try to find something that matches best with the question that is asked (our bot just got smart(er))

Disable new hire welcome emails

From now on you can disable new hire emails by default. Please note that your new hire will NOT get their login details then. This should only be used if you solely want to use our Slack integration to onboard your new hire.

Better editing

We have added a so-called 'WYSIWYG editor' (What you see is what you get editor). You can create bold, underlined, italic text and also add links in the text itself. Next to that you can also create lists easily.

Note: we have removed the URL field from the resources. If there was a URL, then we have moved it to the actual text now.

HR Task

We have now added tasks for YOU. You can add those per new hire and you can mark those as 'done', when they are done. You will find a new icon in the menu that will lead to it.

Access management

We have now added access management to your dashboard. With this, you can create an email address for your new hire through Google Suites. You can also revoke access to G Suites from your dashboard.

Make sure you authenticate your account on the settings page first.

Custom Early Onboarding

We have improved the early onboarding section of our website. You can now change the template when you added it to the new hire. Customize it per person if needed.

Simplified interface

We have improved your dashboard interface by grouping the billing, integration and change password part on one page. We also added some tooltips if you have hover over the menu items. This should help with navigating through the dashboard.

Multiple Slack team support

From now on you can add multiple Slack teams to your account. Previously you could only add one Slack team per account, but now you can add as many as you like.

Change items individually

Now you can change all items per new hire. All tasks are based on the templates you create and now you can add individual files or change text to make it more personal. All with ease!

This video will show you how:

Pro tip: you can still reorder the items by dragging them!

Attach files and add deadlines to todo items

You can now add files (just like you could with resources) and put deadlines on todo items. This way your new hires will know when they need to complete a todo. Todos will not be ordered on deadline. They will be ordered they way you order them.

You will find the ability to add deadlines in your dashboard under your todo items.
