Small Improvements is mostly a self-service product. You can sign up for free, test as long as you like, and adjust it to your needs. We have only 4 main feature, but each is highly configurable and powerful. At the same time, we strive for SI to be as easy as possible to use, both for end users and for admins. Most of the time this works out just fine. Some advanced options are disabled by default, but you can enable them if you like.
However, we've also found out that many evaluators simply enable all features just to try them, and then get overwhelmed by the complexity. Or, maybe the original evaluators leaves the company, and the person taking over gets overwhelmed by a feature that's not really important anyway for their company.
For that reason, a handful of rarely used features now have to get enabled by SI staff manually. This allows us to double check with you if this feature is actually something you need.
|User impersonation||A very powerful feature that can be great to evaluate or trouble shoot problems. But it can be abused as well, so it's off by default.|
|Secondary reviewers||A feature that allows a second person to provide insight to performance reviews. It can be great for some use cases, but it doesn't help with others.|
|Confidential Topics||Usually each topic in a review form is presented to both the manager and toe the reviewee. Enable the Confidential Topics feature to only show certain topics to the manager and HR. This can be useful for calibration and promotion management.|
|Manager Share From Date||Normally managers can decide when they want to share their assessment with their team member. If HR wants more control of the process, they can decide to prevent managers from sharing before a certain date.|
|Cycle admins||Usually all HR admins have full admin permission on all cycles. But it's possible to assign cycle admins ( even people who don't have global HR permission in the first place) thus restricting who can see confidential content in that cycle.|
|Objective participants||Usually an objective cycle is accessible to the entire company. But it's possible to assign the cycle to select people only. This is useful to test the feature only with a group of staff.|
|Custom wording||We offer our customers several wording customizations in Small Improvements.|
|User Picker Advanced||This adds a new tab to the user picker which allows you to select users by pasting their emails or uploading an Excel with emails. Useful if you already have lists of users you want to select from some other system.|
|Alternate Email||Normally a user's Login Email is also the email address they will receive nudges and notifications on. With this feature enabled, you may define an additional, alternate address to be used for all email correspondence from Small Improvements.|
|Custom user synchronization||In addition to dedicated integrations we also allow you to poll and synchronise user data from any system that can expose user data via an API.|
