The Spark real-time feedback feature has been upgraded with Ignite. This feature is meant to ignite conversation when you Spark a team member. Once a manager has sent a Spark to an employee, that employee can now respond to the comments made in that Spark. Managers can also respond to the comments made by an employee, allowing for real-time dialogue and a continuous feedback loop between managers and employees regardless of work location and without the need for a face-to-face conversation.
If an employee responds to a manager’s Spark, the manager will be notified of that response. If a manager replies to the employee’s response, the employee will likewise be notified.
Each Spark is recorded and broken down into current week, current month, and total history. Evaluators can choose the option to leave comments or not.
