Add an action or discussion to my 1-on-1 agenda

Adding actions and discussions to your homepage in 15Five helps you organize and stay on top of your most important to-dos. If an action or discussion requires involvement from another person, you can add it to your collaborative 1-on-1 agenda to keep it top-of-mind. If an action or discussion is more sensitive in nature, you even have the option to mark it as private so it's only visible to you.

Add an action or discussion to a 1-on-1 agenda

    As a reminder, an action is a task that you need to complete and will be carried over to your 1-on-1 as an action item. A discussion is an important topic that you need to reflect on or collaborate with your teammate on and will be carried over to your 1-on-1 agenda as a talking point.
  5. Assign an impacted person: Click the + icon in the bottom, right-hand corner of the action box to select the other 1-on-1 participant.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I thought there were three types of actions: actions, discussions, and blockers. Why aren't blockers included in this article?

When a person creates a blocker, it is automatically added to their 1-on-1 agenda with their manager. Learn more about actions, discussions, and blockers.

What happens when I make an action or discussion private?

When you add a private action or discussion to a 1-on-1 agenda, it will only be visible to you (see screenshot below). It will not appear on the 1-on-1 agenda for the other participant. This is helpful when you want to remember to complete a task or discuss a sensitive topic with a person, but don't necessarily want them to see it on the agenda.
