How does it work?

Plecto's news need lets you post and receive updates in your organization's feed. Post messages in your organization and get notified whenever someone adds a manual registration, triggers a notification, receives an achievement, completes a quiz, or has a birthday!

Organization admins can choose what gets posted on the news feed. Configure the settings in Organization > Settings > News feed.

Configure automatic posts from Plecto

As an admin, you can go to Organization > Settings, from where you can choose what posts from Plecto you want to receive in the news feed:

  • Achievements – Plecto will post in the feed whenever someone receives an achievement. The post will be visible to the employee and their team.

  • Birthdays – Plecto will send a birthday post that will be visible to the employee and their team. Plecto will only show birthdays of those who have added their date of birth in the account settings.

  • Quizzes – See posts about completed quizzes. The posts will be visible to the employee, their manager, and the person who created the quiz session.

  • Manual registrations – Before the news feed was a thing, you saw posts about new registrations in manual data sources. We've incorporated this feature into the news feed. Like before, posts about new registrations will be visible to the employee and their manager.
