Email domains updated from to

Last year, 15Five acquired engagement survey software company, Emplify, as our new Engagement tool. Since then, we've been taking steps towards fully embedding this new tool into 15Five's existing platform. As part of this process, we changed the email addresses from which Engagement-specific notifications are sent from to Released 9/8/22.

Demo sandbox added to trials

When new admins begin a trial of 15Five, they will now see a 'Demo sandbox' link in the banner at the top of their account that opens a demo playground with mock user data. This makes it easier to test out 15Five's features and what they look like when data is present. Released 9/1/22.

"Additional manager" role now called "review viewer"

We renamed the "additional manager" role in Best-Self Review® cycles to "review viewer." Review viewers (previously called additional managers) are non-managers that have read-only permission to a participant's review results. Review viewers can be helpful in change management, dotted-line, and matrix scenarios.

This release is the first in a two-part release that will allow a person in addition to a review cycle participant's direct manager to write a manager review about them in a review cycle. Released 9/1/22.
