Remembering Important Dates
You really do care about your people and you don't want to come across as thoughtless just because you're in meetings all the time and forget to say anything when a member of your team has a 5-year anniversary or it's someone's birthday.
Just look at the 'Milestones' tab every once in a while. At the top you'll see three important areas: tabs for Birthdays, Anniversaries, and a scope dropdown. The scope is as follows:
- Team: My direct reports, my peers, and my boss
- Extended Team: Same as Team + 1 level down from your direct reports
- Department: Everyone in my department
- Company: Everyone in the company
The comments you make will be posted on the day of the anniversary or birthday. No more forgetting.
