Multitudes can proactively send you alerts to help you improve performance, collaboration, and wellbeing.
👥 A two-person icon is a team alert, with information about how the team is doing as a whole
👤 A one-person icon is a personal alert, with information about how an individual is doing
This is a daily summary of pull requests that are awaiting action (e.g., a review, a conversation being resolved, or a merge) and were last updated 8+ hours ago. (If you want to see real-time blocked PRs, you can do so by using our AI Coach Slackbot via slash commands!) We recommend timing these to arrive before your daily stand-up, so you can discuss as needed there.
Here's an example and breakdown
1st line - In the past 3 days
2nd line - [NAME] has the most PRs awaiting review ([X] PRs)
This person has the most open PRs that don’t yet have any reviews.
3rd section - Blocked PRs summary
4th section - Blocked PRs detailed list
The list only includes PRs that were last updated 8+ hours ago (where “updated” means a commit, edit, comment, or review).
The list excludes:
This is a quick view across 5 key metrics of how the selected team (or organization as a whole) is doing. These 5 key metrics are:
Here's an example and breakdown
Subtitle - For [date] - [date], compared to the previous [period]
The metrics are for the last week or fortnight (as per your configuration) compared to the previous period
Body - Overview of each metric
For each metric, we give you the insights, and then an action if the insight status is looking potentially concerning. The status of these insights are based on targets that you can customize from our default industry benchmarks.
For more information on these 5 metrics including how they’re calculated and the research behind our default industry benchmarks, check out our page on What We Measure and Why.
Our AI Coach shows the top insight for your team(s) at the start of each week, and also lets you bring up insights on demand via slash commands. It analyses and understands at each team’s data and context , and then helps:
The AI coach’s information will also include options for you to dive deeper with links into specific charts and views around the app.
At any time, you can also use slash commands to get insights on your team. Start with <code-text>/multitudes<code-text> to see the menu of options, duplicated below!
Type <code-text>/multitudes [param]<code-text> to get insights on the specific topic indicated. For more information about the insights, review what we measure and why.
This shows an idea for a conversation starter at your next 1:1 with a specified team member, based on the team member's data.
Who is included in a 1:1 prompt?
Anyone who you’ve added to the 'Who you have 1:1s with' section of your profile under Settings.
How can I share this with my team member?
Make sure your team member has also connected their Slack account to the Multitudes app via the Settings > Integrations page. This means that the team member must have login access to the Multitudes app. Once they’ve done that, they will automatically start receiving a copy of the conversation starters.
Once you’re added as a user on the Multitudes app, you’ll automatically get the Trend Summary weekly via email at the beginning of the week.
Currently this is the only alert available by email, and it cannot be configured. If you’d like to unsubscribe, you can click the link in the email, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Generally there are two major steps: connect Slack, then configure alerts (e.g., which channels it goes to, how frequently, etc.). These steps can happen in 2 places.
From the Settings > Alerts page on the app
This is the main place where you can see all your alerts in one place, this is what the page looks like:
First, to connect Slack, click a "Connect" button, then...
(Optional) After you’ve connected Slack, if you’d like to get alerts in private channels, you’ll need to do an intermediary step to add the "Multitudes for Slack" app to the relevant private channels. You can do this in 2 ways:
Those private channels should now be visible in the channel dropdowns (alongside all the public channels which are automatically visible) when you’re configuring an alert in the next step.
Second, once Slack is connected, to configure alerts...
The Settings > Alerts page should now allow various configurations:
From the My Insights homepage of the app
For convenience, you can also connect to Slack and configure team alerts directly from the My Insights homepage, because these alerts are suggested as a way to improve key metrics.
Scroll to the Trend Summary section (below the At a glance view), see screenshot below.
Notice the bell icons that link to alerts as such:
Clicking the bell icon will either prompt you to connect to Slack, or if you have already connected, show a modal where you can configure the relevant alert.
For both the Trend Summary email and Multitudes AI Coach Slack alerts, whether you receive these notifications at the team- or company-level depends on set up and permissions , as well as whether you’re either part of a team or watching it, both of which are configurable on the Settings > Teams page.
If your company has at least one team set up...
If you're not on a team, nor watching any team(s)...
If you're on a team, or watching a team > you will receive notifications for each team that you're on or watching (permissions don't matter)
