What is a snapshot
A snapshot is an assessment you make about a person. They can be used to measure the growth someone in your team, determine who is ready for a promotion, who is at risk of low performance etc... The goal of snapshots is to capture this information on a frequent basis and provide it to HR and team leaders to simplify the rewarding process.
The admins of your company's U4TM platform "push" snapshots about certain employees and decide who has to fill them in. This can either be a person's team leader(s), coach(es), or colleagues from the same team. Even self-assessments are possible!
How will I know I need to fill in a snapshot?
If an admin wants you to fill in a snapshot about someone, you can see it in your feed suggestions. This is one of the actions that will display a red badge above someone's profile picture, indicating it's important for you to complete the action. You will also receive an email notification about this (if it's enabled on your platform).
