Get started with Winningtemp

Welcome to Winningtemp! This guide will assist System Administrators in getting started with the platform. Let's begin!


Step 1 - What is Winningtemp?


Winningtemp was born from a simple idea. If we can combine research on successful personnel management and leadership with an intelligent platform that helps leaders apply this knowledge in their organizations, we can make a real difference. That's been our focus ever since.
Winningtemp provides you with the tools to gauge how your employees are feeling, increase their engagement, and make measurable performance improvements.

Go here:
Admin view > Settings > Apps > Slack

"Allow Managers to edit users and add other Managers in their groups." You can specify whether you want managers to have the ability to edit users in groups or if it can only be done by System Administrators.

Go here:
Admin view > Settings > System > General

"Allow employees to edit information about birthday, gender identity, start date" To link these user attributes to the correct column in the import file (see step 4 in this guide), it's important to enable this function.

Go here:
Admin view > Settings > System > General

"The minimum number of users for presentation of temperature"

If you have an anonymity level set to five, this means that at least five unique users in that group must respond to the questions for the company to be able to see the temperature for that group.

To ensure that your groups can display results it is recommended to have at least five users in each group. However, if you have many small groups, you can set a slightly lower anonymity level to ensure that more groups display results.

Go here:
Admin view > Settings > System > General

"Use eNPS"

The eNPS question provides a good indication of what your employees think about the company. A good eNPS score can also be advantageous to showcase externally and for recruitment purposes.

The eNPS question is automatically sent out every fifth week

"Use daily question"

The daily question is an excellent way to gather additional feedback from your employees.
