1-on-1 Talking Points

Add answers to 1-on-1 agenda as Talking points

We've streamlined adding 15Five answers to your 1-on-1 agenda and consolidated these items into your 'Talking points' section. Using your 'Add to 1-on-1 agenda' option, as usual, give the answer a "Talking Point" title. This title will appear on your 1-on-1 agenda under the 'Talking points' section.

Need to rename a talking point? No worries. You can rename these directly from your 15Five Check-in, or via the 1-on-1 itself.



These renamed talking points are expandable from your 1-on-1 agenda. Click the arrow next to 'Answer' and your original 15Five answer, objective, etc will appear in full. Happy talking! 


For more information on adding items to your 1-on-1 agenda, see this article


Unchecked Talking points carry over 

Before this update, unchecked talking points would simply not appear on your next 1-on-1. Now, unchecked talking points will carry over to your next 1-on-1 agenda without any intervention! These unchecked items will appear in the 'Talking points' section again.

Checked off/discussed talking points will still disappear from the following 1-on-1 agenda, as they have been talked about and checked off the list. This behavior remains the same.


1-on-1 Action Items

Assign an owner to your Action items  

Before and/or during your 1-on-1s, you can now determine who's responsible for the action items on your agenda. These tasks will appear in the 1-on-1 email summary (including the task owner's name) and will also appear in the 'To-dos' section of the owner's Profile page.



Easily review previous action items 

To ensure nothing gets missed from your past 1-on-1s, we've separated out any unchecked action items into a new "Previous action items" section. Now, you can easily track past action items that are incomplete, while still working on current action items.
