Request to follow a person's Check-ins

If you want to have visibility into another person's Check-ins, you can request permission to "follow" them. Follow requests are sent to the other person and, if they accept, will give you access to view and interact with their Check-in. This includes commenting, liking, and passing up answers. You can also choose to be notified each time they submit their Check-in.

In this article, you will learn...

If you want to allow someone else to follow your Check-ins, check out our "Add a follow to view your Check-ins" Help Center article.

✏️

Note

Followers can see all past Check-ins by default. Please reach out to 15Five's Support Team if you want your previously submitted Check-ins to be private to your manager only.

Note

You will not have visibility into their Check-ins until your follow request is accepted. They will not have visibility into your Check-ins simply because you were added as a follower to their Check-ins.


Uh-oh: I lost the follower approval email

When you request to follow another person's Check-ins, they will get an in-app notification and an email notification asking them to approve or deny your request. Similarly, if someone requests to follow your Check-ins, you will receive an in-app notification and email notification. If the follow request email was lost or if you do not see the email, you can approve the request in-app by following the steps below.

  1. Click on the Settings gear in the top, right-hand corner of your 15Five account.

  3. At the top of the page, click to open the 'Check-in visibility' tab.
  4. From the 'Who can see my Check-ins' tab, click in the 'Followers' box. From here, click either Approve or Ignore.
