Feedback is critical to our growth and success. Inkrement is the simplest and fastest way to receive and provide peer-to-peer feedback. You can find it under your Apps section in Slack or if this is your first time interacting with it, type /inkrement in any channel, press enter, and then click Show me my dashboard to go to your Inkrement app.
The easiest way to start a flow of feedback is by requesting feedback from your team. Click request feedback in the dashboard, or in any slack channel type /request-feedback and a new screen will open up within slack. Enter the subject on which you want feedback and the people or channel from which you are requesting feedback. And you are done!
Your teammates and selected channel will see a notification that you are requesting feedback and will be able to seamlessly give feedback to you.
Note on private channels
If you have a private channel, invite Inkrement to the private channel first. Simply type @inkrement and press Enter to invite them into the channel.
If your peers have requested feedback in a channel or directly from you, then simply click on the Give Feedback button in the person’s request and you will be able to provide them feedback.
To give timely feedback and recognize someone or give them guidance on improving, simply click Give feedback in the dashboard or type /give-feedback in any slack channel.
Whether it's solicited or unsolicited, the same details are required: Whom you are giving feedback to, Whether it’s praise or opportunity for improvement, Your message which should indicate the situation, the behavior you observed, and its impact.
The recipient of your feedback will see a message in their Inkrement app, messages tab, showing the feedback they have received and who has sent it.
You can also give feedback anonymously by selecting the ‘Deliver anonymously’ option. This will allow your feedback to be sent but the recipient will not know who sent it.
We recommend teams to always communicate transparently and give feedback with their name attached so that people can follow up but if the feedback is sensitive and you feel uncomfortable with how it will be received, then use the anonymous option.
Whether it's preparing for your formal performance review or reflecting on your areas of growth, Inkrement’s download option allows you to download all of your feedback and reflect on the praise and opportunities of development that have been shared with you. Recognize your areas of strength and opportunities for development to create your own personal growth roadmap.
To download feedback, go to your dashboard and click on Download feedback under Shortcuts.
Clicking on submit will send you an excel file in the messages tab which you can download and view.
