Redesigned Directory

You can now search for and discover your organization’s Sift Pages just as you would search for people’s Profiles. You can also view a list of all your organization’s Pages, making it simpler for you to see all your office locations, resource groups, and more at a glance.

We’ve also overhauled the design of the Directory with a new table view as well as a side navigation bar to swap between Pages and Profiles.

If your organization already uses Sift Pages, you’ll need to take a few steps to make them discoverable (you’ll only need to do this once; any new Pages you create will automatically show up in Search). You can watch a short video showing you how to do this here.

Q1 2023 Updates

Help Center refresh

We've revised the articles in our Help Center to ensure our resources are more accurate, up-to-date, and easier to understand.

Data sync performance improvements:

We've greatly increased the performance of our data sync to ensure that your people data is updated quickly and reliably.

SOC 2 audit

We recently underwent our yearly SOC 2 Type II audit to ensure we're safe and secure. The report will be available in May.

Free trial enhancements

We've streamlined the process for signing up for a free trial. Know someone at a different company that would be interested in Sift? Send them our way.

Guided onboarding is now available

Sift guided onboarding is now available! The guided onboarding is for both new and existing Sift users who want to make the most out of Sift. Available in the Admin Dashboard, the onboarding leads a user through the steps to having a fully functioning Sift instance. New and existing users in Sift will be able to:

  • Take a guided tour through all of Sift’s features

  • Be able to track their Sift onboarding progress

  • Ensure that their their organization’s Sift instance is complete

For existing users, an admin will need to go through and manually mark off some existing tasks that have already been completed by the organization.

We've fully launched Sift Pages! Pages allow you to create profile pages for "anything" in your organization and associate people to them. These pages can exist for things like projects, office locations, employee resource groups, or anything else. Take a look at our website for some use case examples. Users in Sift will be able to:

  • Search for Pages by name using the Sift search bar

  • See the Pages that a person is a member of on their profile page (such as a project they're working on, or an award they won)

  • View information on each page, and edit its content if given access

Note: Pages must be set up by your Sift Administrator. To learn how to set up Pages, see our Help Article

"Reach out to me for" Profile attribute

A new profile page section that allows those at your organization to tell others what they should reach out to them for if they have a work related question or issue. Whether it be a certain project, system, or interest areas like mentorship/consulting, now you can signal to others that you’re open to questions and reach-outs on certain topics and areas of expertise.

To add this attribute to your Sift profiles, head to the Profile Layout section of your Admin Dashboard.

Revamped attribute management dashboard

We've performed a major overhaul to our attribute management section in our admin dashboard to:

  • Allow creation of many new attribute types, including autocomplete, single/multi select, hyperlinks, booleans, and much more!

  • Allow for customized validation of attributes. Such as restricting long text attribute length or the number of items in a chip collection.

  • Generally improve and simplify the user experience.

Check out the Attributes section of the Admin Dashboard to explore the new functionality and make your profiles even better!

New and improved Org Chart functionality

We have made some updates to allow further customization of your org chart view.

Simply click the "More" button on a card to:

  • Expand all reports of a person (i.e. everyone "below" them on the org chart)

  • Start from any leader in the organization to view a subtree of a department or team

  • Exclude certain cards for a customized view

  • Perform a Sift search for all reports of a person, allowing you to further filter and discover people underneath a certain leader

Product feedback platform

We now have a place for you to give us feedback on all of our released features, as well as give us ideas of your own! Find the "Requests and Feedback" option in Sift's navigation bar dropdown menu to be taken to our Feedback Board

Upvote ideas that you would also like to see in Sift to let us know what people want most.

December 29, 2020

Org Chart highlighting

Color code your org chart by department, location, remote work status, or anything else! This allows users to more easily identify different areas in their organization and visually compare different areas.

Note for Sift Administrators:

This feature is not enabled by default. You will need to configure the attributes that may be grouped by on the Settings Page.
