Automatic Email Notifications
You may have noticed the occasional (or frequent if you are a Leadr Pro) email notifying you of an action item, goal, learning, or feedback request. Who receives these emails are based on who assigned the goal, action item, learning... Here is a breakdown of current automatic email notifications:
When a goal is created
When a goal is completed
When a goal is deleted
Example: Bob creates a goal for Sally (Owner), Sally receives an email notification. Sally completes her goal, Bob receives an email.
The goal is assigned a new owner
The owner is removed as goal owner
Hilary is Chelsea's manager, Hilary assigns Chelsea a goal in Leadr, Chelsea gets an email notifying her she is the goal owner. Hilary decides Nicole should be the owner, Chelsea receives an email notifying her she is no longer the goal owner. Nicole receives an email notifying her she is a goal owner.
When an action item is assigned
When an action item is completed
Example: Bob assigns as an action item for Sally in the above Goal. Sally received an email notification. When Sally completes the action item, Bob receives the email.
When feedback is assigned
When feedback is completed
Example: Sally requests feedback from her manager Bob, Bob receives an email notification that feedback was assigned. Bob submits the feedback Sally requested, Sally receives an email that the feedback is completed.
When learning is assigned
When learning is completed
Example: Hilary enjoyed a recent podcast, she assigns the podcast as learning to her direct reports. All direct reports receive an email that learning has been assigned. Only Chelsea completes the learning, Hilary receives an email notification and Chelsea is promoted.
When a Meeting is scheduled
When a Meeting is rescheduled
When a Meeting is edited in Leadr
Example: Rachel schedules a new recurring 1:1 with her direct report, Robyn. Both Rachel and Robyn receive an email from email@example.com that the meeting was scheduled. Oh, but wait, Robyn is out of town during one of her 1:1s so Rachel rescheduled the meeting to a new date. Both receive a reschedule email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Robyn renames the series to "1:1 with your favorite employee", both receive an email notifying them of the edit.
