What are Actions?
Actions allow you to prioritize tasks, engage in impactful conversations, and remove obstacles. You can view the Actions you're responsible for in your Actions List, located on your homepage.
Action Categories and Types
There are two categories of actions that may appear in your Actions List, each of which contain different Action types:
- User actions: Actions created by you or your team.
- System actions: Actions created by 15Five that connect to other 15Five features and help drive HR Outcomes.
User Actions are Actions that are manually created by individuals. Learn how to create a User Action.
There are three types of User Actions that you can add to your Actions List:
Actions are tasks that you need to complete. You can create either public or private actions. Actions that require further discussion can be easily added to 1-on-1 agendas as action items.
Discussions are important topics that you need to reflect on or collaborate with your team on. Creating and engaging in discussions you make progress daily, even outside of Check-ins and 1-on-1s. You can create either public or private discussions. Discussions that require face-to-face conversation can be easily added to 1-on-1 agendas as talking points.
Blockers are things to surface with your manager that are preventing you from completing your work. When you create a blocker, your manager is immediately notified so they are aware of the issue and can help unblock you as quickly as possible. Blockers are visible to both you and manager and are automatically added to your current 1-on-1 as talking points upon creation.
A System Action is any activity that an individual takes in 15Five that helps impact HR outcomes. System Actions are created by 15Five that connect to other 15Five features.
You can click the arrow to the left of a System Action to open it in 15Five. Once you complete the Action, it will automatically be marked as "complete" and be removed from your Actions List.
The following System Actions may appear in your Actions List:
- Submit a Check-in
- Review a Check-in submitted by your direct report
- Complete an engagement survey
- Complete a review in a Best-Self Review cycle
- Complete a Transform course
