🎯 Actions List 👥 People List

The Actions List serves as a comprehensive list of things you're responsible for and enables you to work with your manager and coworkers to prioritize tasks, engage in impactful conversations, and remove obstacles.




Two categories of Actions appear in your Actions List: User Actions and System Actions. User Actions are actions created by you or your team. System Actions are actions that you're responsible for completing in 15Five (e.g. filling out your Check-in, submitting a review in a Best-Self Review® cycle, et cetera). Learn more.

From your Actions List, you can achieve the following tasks:

Apply filters

By default, only actions due during the current week are shown on your Actions List. Click "All" to see all actions.


You can also apply filters to your Actions List by clicking Show filters at the top of the section.


Filtering options are:

  • Type: Use this filter to see specific Action Types (e.g. Action Item, Discussion, Complete Microlearning)
  • Assigned by: Use this filter to see Actions assigned to you by a specific person.
  • Impacted person: Use this filter to see Actions you have with a specific person.
  • Status: Use this filter to see open, completed, expired, or archived Actions.
Create an Action

From the Actions List, you can create actions, discussions, and blockers. Once created, they'll appear on your homepage.

  • 📋 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.
