Teams in Leapsome are groups of employees to which a particular skill framework is applied. A team in Leapsome can be a formal team within your organization (e.g., the Marketing or Product team) but also any group of employees with a specific role (e.g., all Junior Marketing Managers, all Frontend Developers, or the leadership circle).
Creating a team allows you to define a specific team skill framework for this group so that you can collect team-specific feedback (and view team-specific reports). Our advice on teams is to keep it simple when you get started with Leapsome and not become too granular - you can always modify your settings later. Try to get started with as few teams and different skill frameworks as possible.
Creating a new team
On the 'Users & Teams' admin page, select 'Teams'; click 'Create new team' and select a name. You can assign team leads and create a sub-team by selecting a parent team (which is only relevant for the Goals module).
Additionally, you can decide if team members should be able to see survey results for this specific team or if a team membership should not affect the visibility of survey results.
Admins will be able to modify the team skills framework and can see aggregated statistics for that team.
Defining skills for a team
Any admin can add or modify skills for that team on the 'Development Framework’ page. Keep it short (no more than five skills per team) and, importantly, avoid overlap with general skills.
Click on ' Create skill' to add a new skill for a team. Select a short title, add an optional description and pick the category that suits best. If the skill is only relevant to a specific team, please enable the option 'Team skill'. You can then add several teams.
Adding users to a team
In the 'Users & Teams' section, see the middle column next to each user’s name in the list. There is a purple '+ Add’ button. Click that button to add the user to a team. When they are a part of that team, they will be reviewed on any team skills specific to that team if 'Team Skills' are turned on for a review.
Deleting a team
When a team is removed from the development framework by an Admin, the team will be removed from all users assigned to that team. Historical data relating to that team will still be visible and as will be goals and skills. The team will be marked as 'deleted team' in this context. The removed teams will not show as an option in any related filters.
