What is a snapshot
Snapshots are used to measure the growth of an employee in your team. 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.
When the admin of your company pushes snapshots about employees, the team leader(s) and/or coach(es) have to fill them in.
How will I know I need to fill in a snapshot?
If an admin wants you to fill in a snapshot about someone on your team, you can see it in your feed suggestions. This is one of the actions that will display a red badge above the profile picture of your team member, indicating it's important for you to complete. You can also receive an email notification about this (if it's enabled on your platform).
