Creating a Discussion

It is important to remember that anyone can create a Discussion* between two people. This means that assistants, HR professionals, meeting facilitators, and others can quickly set up a Discussion* meeting between any Ninety users in the company.

How to create a new Discussion

  1. Navigate to the 1-on-1* tool.

  2. Click either Quarterly Discussion* or Annual Discussion*.

  3. Click the NEW DISCUSSION button.

  4. Click Settings to change any functionality of the Discussion*.

  5. Title the Discussion.

  6. Add a description for the Discussion*.

  7. Add a period from which data on Rocks*, To-Dos*, and KPIs* should be gathered.

  8. Choose a Due Date for participants to complete the forms and have a meeting.

  9. Identify the Manager for the meeting.

    1. Initially, the Manager spot will default to the user creating the Discussion*.

  10. Determine the Direct Report/Team Member for the meeting.

    1. If this user has multiple roles, select only one Seat for this Discussion*.

  11. Click Create Discussion*.

    Tip: Creating a Quarterly Discussion* is the same process as the Annual Discussion*.

How to determine which meeting to use

Both Discussion* types are set up the same. We encourage organizations to have discussions quarterly, and they should use the Quarterly Discussion* feature. Reserve the Annual Discussion* type for evaluations that pull data from a full year.

Next, prepare the forms and run the meeting!
