Advice, answers, and how-tos from the Zugata Team to get the best out of our holistic performance management system for you and your team.

Give real-time feedback with Microsoft Outlook Add-In

 

At Zugata, we believe performance development is a continuous and ongoing process. One of the ways we are doing this today is by collecting valuable, 360° feedback from the right people. Our 'People you work with most' algorithm automatically identifies and solicits feedback from the right people so you can better understand your strengths and growth areas. Today we are making it even easier to give feedback or request feedback without leaving your workflow.

Imagine seeing an email from a colleague in your Microsoft Outlook application, which reminds you to give her feedback about a presentation she just delivered. Instead of clicking out to get to Zugata, you can now provide more real-time feedback with Zugata's Outlook Add-in without leaving your workflow.

But wait, there’s more! Zugata’s Microsoft Outlook Add-in Features includes:
 

Feedback

  • Send constructive feedback directly to your colleagues using one of the feedback templates
  • Post positive feedback and recognition about your colleague as a public praise
  • Quickly request feedback from your colleagues

Goals

  • Immediately know your colleagues’ goals and their progress
  • Be reminded of your very own goals

Notes

  • Write notes about your direct or colleague that only you can see
  • Access your notes again on their profile in the Zugata web-app to use as reference during evaluations, peer feedback and more.
