The Priorities section on your check-in provides an easy way to hold yourself accountable and acknowledge progress on a regular basis. Priorities in 15Five are short-term goals/tasks that follow the cadence of your check-in reporting; if you report weekly, you will have weekly priorities. During your first 15Five check-in, you will only see the question 'What do you intend to accomplish between now and your next report?' After your first check-in is submitted, you will see current priorities and priorities for the coming week/two weeks/month.
On your current 15Five check-in, you will see a question asking about your priorities for the coming reporting period that says, "What do you intend to accomplish between now and your next report?" List your priorities for the next reporting period in that section.
During your next reporting period, you’ll see the previously added priorities listed at the top of your check-in and in your profile. You can reference this list throughout the reporting period to remind yourself of top priorities and keep yourself focused.
Add an additional priority to your current 15Five check-in
There’s a space where you can list the things you’re proud of finishing (but hadn’t planned for on your previous check-in). Simply click Add a new priority and fill in the field with your accomplishment.
Manage my priorities
After each reporting period, you will need to update the completion/incompletion of your previously added priorities. You can also edit the priority or carry the priority over to your next check-in.
Mark a priority as "complete"
Any time you complete a task, check the circle to the left to mark it as "complete." Complete meaning you were able to accomplish the task during the reporting period at hand.
Leave a priority "incomplete"
If a priority has not been completed when you're ready to submit your check-in, leave it be; it will appear in a grey. This means the priority wasn't completed during the reporting period. Incomplete priorities won't carry over to the next check-in unless you specifically carry them over.
Edit or delete a priority
You can edit a priority at any time by clicking in the text box and making the desired changes. If you need to delete a priority that was previously added, just click into the field and delete the entire text. Edits and deleted priorities will be tracked under 'Edit history'.
Carry a priority over to your next 15Five
If you want an incomplete or unfinished priority to appear again on your next check-in, just click the ‘cycle’ icon next to that item and give yourself a little more time.
If you do not mark a priority as complete or manually carry it over, it will not roll over into the next check-in automatically.
Interact with your priorities
Remember that the application will automatically save any additions made to your 15Five check-in, even if you don’t submit it right away. Visit it daily and keep things updated little-by-little.
